WEC Group installs third Fibre Laser at Darwen Facility

WEC Group are extremely pleased to announce that our third brand new 10Kw Fibre Laser Cutting Machine is now fully operational at our Laser Engineering site in Darwen following heavy investment in to our laser cutting capabilities and capacity.

This new acquisition is part of a £4m investment plan over the past 12 months which has seen the company replace our old CO2 laser line-up (including one of our tube lasers) with four of the very latest fibre lasers.

The new lasers also have integrated sheet loading and part sorting automation, granting us a 30% increase in overall laser cutting capacity.

The first two machines received at the end of last year have played a key part in our successful efforts to supply over 12,000 sheet metal assemblies for the VentilatorChallengeUK consortium and new Nightingale Hospitals last month so we are very excited by this latest addition.

This takes our Group total to 24 Laser cutting machines including 10 fibre lasers. To discuss your laser cutting enquiries, please feel free to contact us by emailing us on  enquiries@wecl.co.uk or calling us on 01254 773718.
