GSI Lumonics Receives Order for Laser Cutting Systems
KANATA, Ontario, Jan. 18 -- GSI Lumonics Inc. has received a $12-million order from Tower Automotive of Milwaukee, Wis., and Metalsa of Monterrey, Mexico, for its modular high-power YAG laser systems. The AM153 laser system incorporates GSI Lumonics' new robotic cutting head and a custom cutting head developed by Germany's High YAG. DCT of Sterling Heights, Mich., will integrate the entire system.
The laser systems are to be employed in cutting hydroformed tubes and complete truck frames for DaimlerChrysler's DR 2002 program. The order was placed in December 1999; GSI Lumonics expects the first systems to be installed in April, with the full order to be completed by the end of the year.
