Andy Tucker, President/CEO and Marty Tucker, Vice President, attribute much of the company’s success to partnering with AMADA for over
40 years. Marty Tucker put it in these words, “Being a contract manufacturer/job shop we need to remain as flexible as possible. Our goal with purchasing the LCG 3015 AJ Fiber Laser and ASFH automation was to process more parts per hour with equal or greater quality than previously seen on our CO2
lasers... without hiring any additional personnel. We are extremely pleased with AMADA’s solution. A .125" aluminum job that used to be machined is
now laser cut. Machining process time was measured in minutes per part while laser-cutting takes less than 15 seconds and is burr-free.”
Andy Tucker adds, “Leveraging the ASFH automated material handling and storage system enabled us to increase our capacity by more
than 25% without adding any additional staff. Today, we have two employees running four laser cells.”
More Parts Per Hour.
“The LCG 3015 AJ
Fiber Laser and

competitive marketplace, AMADA has
enabled us to be a
option for our customers.”
The AMNC 3i is the fastest AMADA control available. The large touchscreen and intuitive
graphics ensure ease of use. Thumbnail views of parts or nests provide for quick and easy
identification. To keep pace with the speed of the fiber laser, a multi-shelf ASFH system
provides automated material handling and storage. The ASFH system also ensures maximum
flexibility to handle short runs and 24/7 production.
