Ruukki to increase its laser cutting capacity

ILS_2012_1_Ruuki

Seinajoki, Finland – Ruukki, the largest service center in the Nordic countries focusing on steel fabricating, has acquired a second bevel laser cutting line for its facility here. Deployment of the new line will meet increased demand for prefabrication services and will improve the company‘s potential to offer customers cost-effective solutions.

The new bevel laser cutting line can process steel up to 20 mm thick and 12 meters long and can process both Ruukki's special steels and standard steels. The laser cutter, a 5 kW LaserMat from Messer Cutting Systems with a 3 by 12 meter table, compliments a 4 kW LaserMat already in place.

The new bevel laser will be in use in May 2012. Because the new line is being housed in the existing production facilities in Seinäjoki and expertise in the use of a similar laser already exists, the laser will soon be fully up and running after installation.

Ruukki's service center in Seinäjoki is the largest unit in the Nordic countries to focus on steel prefabrication services and manufactures steel parts and components for the domestic and export markets. The unit employs not only laser cutting, but also flame, plasma and mechanical cutting. In addition, the unit offers edging and machining services. Ruukki’s steel prefabrication unit in Seinajoki has 180 employees.
