What we do

We design, develop and manufacture a range of safety control systems, optical laser protection and image processing systems specifically for application to hydraulic and electric press brakes.

Our primary path to market is through the press brake manufacturers who we collaborate with to embed systems and technology into press brake design to achieve the highest possible level of functionality, protection and performance.

We also supply optical laser protection systems for the press brake retrofit market. These systems improve the safety of existing machinery to protect operators from injury while maintaining the highest possible level of machine performance.

Aside from press brakes we offer safety and protection solutions for other types of sheet metal processing machinery including folding machines and hydraulic presses. Development of systems and technology to support the wider sheet metal industry continues through our ongoing research and development programs.

We are also committed to the development and understanding of international safety standards and participate in several international standards committees including CEN/TC, ANSI and ISO. We are actively involved in the education and promotion of standards and their correct application.

OEM Services

We take the time to meet with the press brake manufacturer to really understand their specific needs and design requirements then tailor a solution to achieve the optimum balance of features and performance versus cost.

We greatly value the relationships we have established with our OEM customers no matter where they are in the world. Time and distance are never obstacles in maintaining strong relationships and providing our customers with the very best support and with an ongoing commitment to keep working with them to evolve technology so they can deliver machines to their customers with the highest possible level of protection and performance.

Our Partner Program

Market overview

In the company’s earlier years of trading, the long-term goal was to establish partnerships with all press brake manufacturers within the industry in order to supply products across all types and levels of machines.

Over time, focus has shifted away from supplying products to the generic machine manufacturers and towards investing more time and resources in growing key partnerships and providing tailored, high-end solutions to leading manufacturers that design and produce press brakes with proprietary technology. This adjustment to market focus has strengthened the company’s prominent position in the industry, leading to long-term growth and a solid platform that enables future expansion into new markets.

Expansion and growth

Lazer Safe continues to explore new opportunities to develop and adapt its proprietary technology to suit a multitude of applications within the sheet metal industry as well as future expansion into other industries and markets.

Current development projects include;

  • Advanced three dimensional optical sensor technology.
  • Wireless SIL 3 safety communications devices with energy efficient self-charing technology, plus integrated range and line-of-sight monitoring.
  • Wide-scan optical systems to expand the safety and high-speed image processing capabilities for large press brakes.
  • Optical protection, safety and control management systems for c-frame and side-frame folding machines.
  • Optical safety and productivity solutions for sheet metal panel benders.
