CNC Turret Manufacturing

Dawson’s Amada LC2012 is a state of the art Punch and Laser Combination System and is another example of Dawson’s ongoing commitment to improved efficiency and utilization of up-to-date technology. The C1 gives Dawson the ability to laser cut and turret punch on the same machine, reducing costs by eliminating the need for secondary manufacturing operations.


  • The C1 delivers an excellent cutting quality with a laser output of 2500 Watts. In addition to laser cutting, with Dawson’s extensive tool library the C1 is capable of a multitude of 3D punching and machining applications (operations, features?) such as:

  • • Precision tapped extrusions and holes in English and Metric threads

  • • Forming of small features (such as bent flanges)

  • • Lances

  • • Half shears

  • • Embosses and Collars

  • • Louvers

  • • Countersinking

  • • Counterboring
