Infinite Web 355 laser cutting and welding system splices the leading and trailing edges of metal coils in strip-processing lines to permit continuous-feed operations. A single head cuts and welds, and the system works with iron and nickel-based alloys in a variety of widths and thicknesses.

The system is mobile to service multiple converting lines and requires a single electrical input. An industrial PC-based control system works via touch-screen interface and comes with preprogrammed recipes and self-diagnostic capability. Coaxial optics verify positioning for precise and accurate splices.
