Running Full Out
Air Products’ CryoEase® Microbulk Supply Enables Growth and Expansion at Ontario Laser.
Ontario Laser Cutting, Inc. in Tillsonburg, Ontario was running around the clock – or at least trying to. At least twice a day, state-of-the-art laser cutting machines were sitting idle due to either a “run out” of the industrial gases used in the machines, or an “error out” caused when the nitrogen and oxygen pressure levels in the cylinders or dewars dropped below what was necessary for the laser cutting machines to operate within its tight cutting standards. “Run outs and error outs were definitely impacting our productivity,” states Larry Stuyt, president and owner of Ontario Laser. This was particularly true for the lights-out or overnight shift, when no employees are on duty and the automatic laser cutting machine runs on its own for 12-14 hours.Looking to solve these challenges, Ontario Laser turned to the indu-trial gas specialists at Air Products.
