• Unmatched Productivity (The FOL AJ Fiber
Laser provides cutting speeds up to 4 times faster
than CO2 laser and a 7/8" rating in steel plate.
An ASLUL system maximizes “green-light-on” time
by providing high-speed, automated storage and
• The Ultimate Robotic Bending Solution
(The Astro165W NT processes large and heavy parts quickly and safely while
outperforming manual operation times by up to 22% and reducing labor costs).
• Maximum Versatility (The FOM2 RI can process round, square, rectangle,
C-channel, and angle iron — making it the most versatile Rotary Index laser
cutting system available. An integrated Rotary Index provides the ability to
switch from flat sheet cutting to tube cutting in 2 minutes or less).
Amada provides the optimal fabricating solutions.
Aloma Shim is a leading full-service ISO 9001:2008 Registered Contract Manufacturing Company. Located in a 98,000 sq. ft. facility in Verona, Pennsylvania, the company
specializes in the manufacturing of precision OEM & custom fabricated parts, standard
& custom shims, alignment devices and accessories. To maintain a leadership position,
the company partnered with Amada and leveraged the latest technologies in fiber laser
cutting, tube & angle laser cutting and robotic bending. Aloma Shim’s president, Fred
Grove, comments on that decision: “The FOL AJ Fiber Laser with automation improved production efficiency by over 70%... one would think we added two new lasers not just one. We
effectively operate the FOL AJ 24 hrs a day with one operator and one laborer as opposed to
3 operators and one laborer on our other lasers.”
Plant Manager, Bob Wolpink comments on Amada’s robotic bending solution
which has made a huge impact on Aloma’s bending production: “The Astro 165W NT
with its Automatic Tool Changer has reduced brake setup times by 500% and increased work
center output by 150%.”
To gain the ability to quickly switch between flat sheet cutting and tube cutting,
the company also purchased Amada’s FOM2 RI laser cutting system with an integrated
Rotary Index. Bob Wolpink reflects on new levels of speed and efficiency: “The FOM2
RI increased our tubing material utilization by as much
as 20% and increased our tube/angle cutting speeds by
as much as 40%!”
The FOM2 RI’s Rotary Index is located on one of three
shuttle pallets — making it extremely easy to switch
from flat sheet cutting to tube or pipe cutting.
