Burch Tank & Truck Inc., US-based bulk tank trailer and equipment manufacturer, has added a 20’ fibre laser cutter to its list of current available equipment.
Fibre lasers have always been known to provide highly accurate cuttings while operating more efficiently with lower costs associated to the product. They can also cut thin metals three times faster than CO2 laser systems.
Burch Tanks fibre cutter has an 8’ x 20’ double bed and can cut parts ranging from small, intricate pieces to large items. This laser cutter can handle up to ¾” carbon steel, up to 7/16” stainless steel and aluminium alloys, and up to ¼” brass. It allows unique materials, that were previously difficult to cut, to be quickly and precisely cut.
“This is one of the largest fibre cutters in the Midwest” according to Jeff Harrison, CEO of Burch Tank and Truck, Inc.
He continued, “In addition to our press brake and plate roll machine our new laser cutter allows us to produce precise parts for all of our equipment helping to make the highest quality tanks possible. We are excited for the new opportunities; Burch Tank is now able to produce high quality custom cutting and fabrication parts for not only Burch Tank but other businesses as well.”
