Recognising a gap in the subcontract laser market, Chris Sweet and Mark Causer set up Emsea in Tewkesbury to meet the requirements of manufacturers in the South West of England. Starting with a Mazak X48 Hi-PRO laser in 2004, success was immediate, with the company producing parts for a wide range of applications including prestige vehicles, agricultural equipment and architectural structures.

Chris Sweet’s knowledge of Lantek made the software his natural choice for programming the Mazak. “Lantek Expert II was an essential element of the company start up. The nesting is good and we utilise its common line cutting, tag, and micro jointing capabilities.” Because of the huge variety of parts which it produces, Emsea makes use of both automatic and manual nesting, depending on the nature of the job. Lantek’s nesting considers the complete range of parts required, including components scheduled for re-manufacture. By automatically infilling large parts with smaller ones, and considering sheet remnants, the software adds to its customer’s efficiency and cost saving.
