Actionlaser are capable of producing any open area up to the maximum shown for a given hole size and thickness.
This contrasts to other manufacturers who have a fixed open area, or fixed combinations of aperture opening and thickness.
Maximum Open Area
Open Area is a measure of ‘hole density’ and is calculated based on the hole size on the Working Face of the LaserScreen. LaserScreens can be manufactured with any percentage Open Area up to a maximum limit.
This limit is determined when the edges of the apertures on the back side (non-working face) will be in danger of touching.
Current maximum internal tube diameter up to 180 mm.
Perforated tube length up to 2,500 mm.
For very long tubes, distortion can be an issue at high hole density.
The side where the diameter of the tapered hole is smaller (the ‘working face’) is always the inside of the tube.
Actionlaser can program unperforated regions as required for hygiene, ease of welding or other purposes.
Note: the lower the open area and or greater the unperforated region, the lower the screen cost.
Actionlaser carries a large range of materials in stock.
