LCS laminations are manufactured for industries that require adherence to demanding specifications and certifications for raw materials, manufacturing processes, and thermal treating. 

LCS can produce electrical laminations and lamination segments from 1/2 inch thru 24-inch diameters utilizing punch presses from 3 to 330 tons. Quantities of several thousand, several hundred thousand through several million are routinely processed and fit our capabilities and our facility’s automation well

Cobalt and Nickel alloys, Silicon steels (M15-M45), and cold rolled motor lam are commonly utilized to meet customers’ program requirements. Insulator lamination materials such as Nomex, Delrin, Fiberglass, Rubber, and PTFE can be processed as well.

To get all this done LCS uses compound and progressive tooling technologies built and maintained in-house. LCS also utilizes laser cutting for smaller prototype/development quantities.
