ASG Group has announced the addition of a laser tube cutting system to its product range.

Suitable for both small batches and large runs, the laser tube cutting system will provide a 70 per cent improvement in production rates over the more traditional operations of sawing, drilling, punching and de-burring, with tube capacities up to 152mm diameter and a maximum length of 6500mm.

The laser tube cutting system complements existing capabilities of CNC tube manipulation, robotic welding, assembly and nylon coating and reinforces ASG Group’s belief that investment in technology should form a major part of its plan to beat the recession.

ASG Group is heavily involved in the struggling automotive sector, supplying to Land Rover, Jaguar and Honda to name but a few.

Dealing with major automotive brands like these means ASG is well used to the pressures of annual cost down and has to be very keen on production costs.

ASG Group has long been pursuing a policy of less reliance on the automotive sector and as part of that strategy it recently acquired the Mansfield-based vacuum forming company, Ansini.

This acquisition, together with a change of emphasis at its Derby manufacturing base, has enabled ASG Group to move into the furniture, industrial, healthcare and aviation sectors, broadening its customer base and reducing its reliance on the major motor manufacturers.
