The main purpose of this project is to conduct a study on implementation of laser cutting technology in a manufacturing company. The objectives are to analyze the environment of a manufacturing company to incorporate with laser cut technology, to analyze the specification of the technology and identify the appropriate machine that suits the company environment, to design the process layout and machine layout for the selected machine This case study will start with introduction of laser cutting technology, stating the scope of work and deliverables of this study. Followed by literature review. Here, details explanation on how laser works, thermal effects of laser cutting, safety from laser and advantages and disadvantages of laser cut. Besides that, types of machines will be listed out under this section. Next, will be methodology. There are two main method used to acquire information for this case study. Firstly its literature review. Information is collected from a wide scope and of all different perspective. The second method is from plant research, details and actual scenario information is obtained through this method. In the fourth chapter, a company is chosen to carry out the case study. It was stated with introduction to the company followed by the company structure, product and services. Next, presented was the detail manufacturing process. Then, a problem statement was developed to highlight the problem that was currently faced by the company. Then, requirements from the company towards the machines were stated before evaluating proceeded. A detail analysis, phase by phase was conducted to identify the best choice of machine for the company in this case. It is recommended to the company to purchase the laser cutting machine. Once machine was identified, installation, testing and commissioning were carrier out. Finally, this case study ended with a conclusion and recommendation on precaution for machine operation purpose.
