The companies BST eltromat International and LAP GmbH Laser Applikationen enter into a sales cooperation. Both companies are part of the worldwide market leaders in their branches. BST eltromat manufactures quality assurance systems for the web processing industry. LAP is a manufacturer of laser components. BST eltromat would like to meet the customers’ demands and requirements regarding the permanently increasing requirements for quality.
Thus, in the future, BST eltromat will also offer LAP laser positioning systems. Due to the cooperation with BST eltromat, LAP will expand the sales channels for their servo driven laser systems in the tire manufacturing industry.
Laser positioning systems are integrated in tire building machines and are crucial for the quality assurance in the tire manufacturing process. They project laser lines precisely and allow the machine operator to visually control the position of the individual layers during tire building. The servo driven laser systems are equipped with movable laser modules which can be positioned completely independently from each other.
Due to the high traversing speed up to 1000 mm/sec, it is possible to save an enormous amount of time. Moreover, tire manufacturers will also benefit the reliability and durability of this laser precision technology. The high automation and system integration competence of BST eltromat enables a fully functional and fast integration of these laser systems in customer-owned machines.
The extended product portfolio is an important benefit for our customers. We started this cooperation in order to expand our portfolio of quality and automation solutions and thus to enable a more efficient production output for our customers in the tire manufacturing industry. Regarding quality and functionality, the laser positioning systems from LAP exactly meet our demands. We are looking forward to working with LAP", summarizes Klaus Hamacher, Head of Automation at BST eltromat.
