September 4, 2014 - Intended for fabrication shops, Tube Laser and Fiber Laser cost models in Costimator minimize estimating and quoting time without compromising accuracy or consistency. Tube Laser model represents manufacturing times and costs for tube laser machines such as Trumpf, Adige-BLM, and Mazak which are used to cut metal tubing. Fiber Laser model represents manufacturing times and costs for fiber laser machines such as Bystronic, Hypertherm, and Trumpf that are used to cut, notch, and pierce sheet metal.

New cost models for estimators reduce estimating and quoting time without compromising accuracy or consistency

MTI Systems Inc., developer of Costimator cost estimating software, announced today that they added Tube Laser and Fiber Laser cost models to their expansive cost model library.

The tube laser cost model represents the manufacturing times and costs for tube laser machines such as Trumpf, Adige-BLM, and Mazak which are used to cut metal tubing. This technology blends more than six various operations within a single working cycle on one tube laser machine. Through their fully-programmed automatic cycle, they pierce, cut, and notch various metal tubing configurations. This process eliminates all of the traditional sawing, machining, deburring, and drilling operations performed by conventional machines adding significant operable process and time savings to the fabrication and cutting process.

The fiber laser cost model represents the manufacturing times and costs for fiber laser machines such as Bystronic, Hypertherm, and Trumpf that are used to cut, notch and pierce sheet metal. The primary advantages of cutting flat sheet metal with fiber laser technology is that it‘s compact solid state design configuration is practically maintenance free and provides a lower cost of operation than what can be achieved with comparable CO2 lasers and offers faster cut rates as well.

Landoll Corporation, who was the first North American manufacturer to acquire the LT JUMBO tube laser (made by BLM Group), needed the cost models added to Costimator® so their cost estimating team could estimate parts based on using this new machine. “Integrating new manufacturing technologies, such as work centers, into Costimator® is easy, enabling users to develop new cost models as their company acquires new equipment,” explains cost estimator Scott Padgett from Landoll Corporation. “Once you learn the basics to building cost models, they can be developed very quickly.”
