Custom build machines & projects

Development of completely new laser machines

MetaQuip develops completely new laser machines for customer-specific applications. In collaboration with the customer, we first determine and test whether laser technology is suitable for the application. We then specify the machine and work out a development plan and cost estimate. After approval, MetaQuip develops, tests and produces the entire machine(s). All our machines comply with the CE machine guidelines. MetaQuip can deliver from single pieces to large numbers of machines.

In addition to flat plate processing, MetaQuip can also supply 3D and robotized custom solutions for engraving, cutting or laser welding.

Adjustments and extensions to existing laser machines

In many cases it is also possible to expand or adapt an existing machine so that it is made suitable for the required volumes or production speed. Many of the extensions and adjustments that we make are in automatic handling, loading and unloading, or use in a continuously running production line.

Production automation

Customized solutions are often interesting or even necessary for new or very specific applications of laser technology or when using laser technology in fully automated production lines. MetaQuip also supplies solutions that are controlled via a central system to have texts, barcodes or serial numbers numbered fully automatically from a central database.

CE certification & machine guidelines

MetaQuip develops all its machines so that they comply with CE machine guidelines. Where possible, we make the design in such a way that it is an intrinsically safe machine in terms of laser safety (laser class 1). In addition to the legal guidelines, our machines are extensively tested in advance for performance and stability over time, so that we can be sure that the specifications are met and the machine can be used in the production process without any problems.

Custom build machines & projects

Affordable custom machines

We use technology that is already available for our custom solutions as much as possible and only make adjustments and extensions where necessary. This is one of the reasons why we can keep costs low. In addition, we make parts with a lot of manual work in our production facilities in China. Custom-made machines are always designed, built and tested at MetaQuip in Maarheeze by our own team or partners in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Your flexible partner 

Flexibility is key within MetaQuip projects. We adapt to the wishes and requirements of the client. And come up with practical and feasible solutions based on our knowledge and skills. MetaQuip can take the lead in development, or take a supporting role in the field of laser technology.

Ideas or questions about possibilities or applications?

Contact MetaQuip's engineering team. Then we can see together whether laser technology is an answer to your question. Lasers are clean, do not contaminate the object and work quickly. Laser machines offer many possibilities for sustainable and circular solutions.

MetaQuip develops laser machines
from A to Z for specific applications

If an adjustment or extension of our machines is not enough, MetaQuip also offers the possibility to develop a completely new laser machine. The starting point is then the specification, requirements and wishes of the customer. Together with the customer, we look for the best solution that fits the budget and available time.
MetaQuip has extensive knowledge and expertise in the field of sensor technology, electronics, mechanics and software. Combine this with extensive experience in project, process and product development and the perfect mix is created to bring new developments from trial or concept to prototype and product within a short time, including CE certification according to machine guidelines and laser safety requirements. Also during the release project, MetaQuip offers support if desired to further optimize the process and settings.

Examples of custom build machines & projects

Some examples of MetaQuip projects that we have realized in recent times.

Production & Automation

Laser solutions aimed at production applications. Laser machines tailor-made for specific objects or a certain production speed. MetaQuip also realizes full integration of laser machines in your production line with links to existing systems.

Fiber laser engraving – NTZ

5 fiber laser engraving machines that are fully integrated and controlled from the central system.

Parallel fiber laser engraving (5/8 up)

Multiple fiber laser engraving machines that work in parallel to achieve the desired production volumes.

Laser machine & Process innovation

MetaQuip develops new laser machines or new processes based on laser technology, making new applications a reality. Laser technology can be adjusted cleanly, quickly, permanently and flexibly.

Laser sticker machine – NIPPON

In collaboration with Nippon, MetaQuip has developed a laser machine to quickly and flexibly realize extremely durable industrial stickers that are often used in the automotive industry, but the fields of application are much broader.

Cliche laser machine –

Instead of etching pad plates, it is also possible to engrave these with laser technology. Fast, clean and flexible. We developed this solution together with Tampo Techniek Nederland (TTN).

Pad printing technique

Embossing of cardboard and paper

New innovation that makes it possible to laser engrave drums that are used for offset printing of cans or embossing of paper and cardboard.

Custom laser machines

Completely newly developed laser machines, for customer-specific applications and applications.

Custom fiber laser marking machine

MetaQuip has developed a fiber laser marking machine based on the wishes and requirements of a customer that combines speed and efficiency with maximum safety for the operator. Here is a short video impression.

Custom cardboard boxes – total solution

MetaQuip has supplied the laser technology for the Slimbox laser machine to be able to make custom cardboard boxes quickly and easily.

From plate cardboard to custom box

Exploring shrink films – manually

MetaQuip has developed various solutions for de-skinning shrink films on glass bottles. Shrink wrap also works for other materials. In this example, the laser cuts the sleeve and removes it manually.

Exploring shrink films – production

MetaQuip also has solutions that, in this case, cut and remove beer bottles fully automatically. This is used in a production line.

Robot Laser Applications

MetaQuip has developed a number of robot laser applications and is continuously innovating in this area because the combination of these two techniques offers interesting new possibilities.

Loading/unloading with robot arm

With robots, machines can be loaded and unloaded automatically. This is possible for fiber engraving lasers that often work with small objects, but also for unloading CO2 laser machines with a large work bed where several objects are cut free. Inquire about the possibilities.

Fiber laser engraving at any angle with robot

Placing the fiber laser on an industrial robot makes it very easy to place an engraving / marking on large heavy objects. Placing multiple engravings in hard-to-reach places is also possible. Here is a short first impression of the possibilities.

Machine add-ons

Extensions to existing machines to work faster. Examples include rotation modules for specific applications or special objects. Holders to quickly place an object. Laser-safe transits for processing very large objects.
