Technical Information and Definitions
A contract manufacturer is a firm that manufactures finished products under the label or brand of another firm, based on the purchasing firm’s own specifications.
Deriving from the Toyota Production System, lean manufacturing is a systematic approach for the elimination of waste. It includes an assembly-line methodology oriented towards achieving the shortest possible cycle time by eliminating waste. Ideally, during manufacturing, processes should only add value that a customer would be willing to pay for. All non-value added (NVA) process steps are seen as waste and should be eliminated.
EXW (Ex Works) and FOB (Free on Board) are pre-defined commercial terms (called Incoterm), widely used in international commercial transactions.
At Komacut, depending on customer’s specifications, we use hot rolled steel (Q235, Q275), cold rolled steel (SPCC, SAPH440), aluminum (6061, 5052, 6063) and stainless steel (304, 316, 201, 430). Visit our Materials page here for the latest material options.
For laser cutting, we can achieve linear tolerances of +/- 0.2 mm, and for holes diameter tolerances, we can achieve +/- 0.08 mm tolerances.
For CNC sheet bending, we can achieve angular tolerances of +/- 0.5 degree, and for XYZ tolerances sheet bending, we can achieve 0.3 mm tolerances.
CO2 laser cutting works by focusing a high-intensity infrared laser beam through a series of mirrors and out through a nozzle. Fibre laser cutting uses a bank of diodes to create the beam, which is then focused through a fibre-optic cable.
