How do you get the biggest Laser in Australasia across international borders and up and running in its home in Bibra Lake?
In 2020, Ledge Finance partnered with Stirlings Performance Steels to facilitate the purchase of the Penta Bolt 12025 VII 20KW high-speed Fiber Laser, something the team from Stirlings had identified would help them to meet market demand and grow their supply and service capabilities.
The size and scope of the project was challenging, and it took a strong partnership from purchase through to delivery and operation, with Ledge Finance being there all the way to facilitate the transaction.
Stirlings’ new laser cutter was delivered and put into operation at the start of 2022, and they haven’t looked back.
“The Penta Bolt is a powerful and fast 20-kilowatt fibre-optic laser cutter. Currently the largest in the southern hemisphere, the laser can process stainless steel plates up to 60 millimetres thick. In addition, it’s equipped with two 12-meter by 2.5-meter shuffle tables that enable us to process larger parts with improvements in accuracy and efficiency.”
