Building Barreto Tough: Laser Department and Press Brake

Barreto Manufacturing equipment is proudly made in the USA, and over 95% of our manufactured parts and components are fabricated in-house. In this article, we are going to give a bit of insight on how we build Barreto equipment.

One of the first steps our material takes on its journey to becoming a quality machine is the Laser Department. Raw steel sheets are loaded onto the laser deck, where the machine then utilizes large suction cups to lift and move the sheet into position for cutting.

Our laser operators use special programming to "nest," or arrange, the parts. This minimizes waste by ensuring that the space available on the sheet of steel is used to the fullest extent possible.

The laser then cuts the steel according to the designated programming, and offloads the sheet skin after cutting. Our laser operators then manually remove the completed cut parts and discard the leftover steel skin. It's a fascinating process that combines the tech of today with the hard skills of our operators, and the result is custom steel parts of the highest quality - all produced in-house.
