In a “UK first”, Runcorn and Ewloe-based electrical engineering firm, LCA Controls, has switched its control panel operations from manual production to laser-machining. The move is expected to transform its productivity and efficiency. LCA Controls, which recently came under new ownership, has invested in a Rittal Perforex LC 3015 3D laser machining centre – a system which will revolutionise construction of its stainless-steel panels by automating processes previously done by hand.

Integrated 3D-modelling and CAD capabilities

With its with integrated 3D-modelling and computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities, the Perforex LC 3015 can be programmed to manage measuring and machining to an extremely high degree of accuracy, processing panels in a fraction of the former time. It will allow LCA Controls to service higher volume orders going forward, as well as rapid turnaround of bulk orders – including next day delivery.

“Our investment in this new Rittal Automation Systems machine is incredibly important for the growth of our control panel manufacturing and design business here in the UK,” said Alan Sheppard, Managing Director of LCA Controls. “It is a statement of intent in terms of our growth, as it means we can deliver more, faster, better, more efficiently for customers across the world without compromising on the quality we’re famous for.”
