Laser machining centre

Published:  11 January, 2019

In a “UK first”, electrical engineering firm, LCA Group, reports it has switched its control panel operations from manual production to end-to-end automation, including laser-machining ( and says the move is expected to transform its productivity and efficiency.

LCA Group says it has invested in:

• a Rittal Automation Systems 3D laser machining centre to revolutionise construction of its stainless-steel panels by automating processes previously done by hand

• a Secarex cutting centre to cut DIN support rails, C rails and cable ducts

• an Averex wiring centre to cut wires to the correct length before stripping and crimping them with wire ferrules

“Our investment in this new Rittal Automation Systems machine is incredibly important for the growth of our control panel manufacturing and design business here in the UK,” said Alan Sheppard, MD of LCA Group.
