Lantek helps Midtherm Laser to increase the volume of parts manufactured and reduce lead times to 4 days

Midtherm Laser specialises in laser cutting and folding and, with around 40,000 parts going through its workshop every week, needed an efficient way of handling the large volume of administrative work necessary to deliver high quality parts on time at a competitive cost. Mark Hannon, Works Manager for Midtherm Laser, says, “We moved to our Dudley site in 2004 and since then we have grown to four Bystronic CO2 flatbed lasers, one Bystronic fibre laser and two press brakes. Before we installed the Lantek software we used around four software packages which did not connect to one another to manage the business.”
