Tarsco Begins $7M Bolted Tank Facility Upgrade

Tarsco, a TF Warren company has purchased a Bystronic ByTrans Extended 3015 laser for its Goodman, MO bolted tank operations facility. The laser is the first part of a $7 million equipment upgrade to improve overall quality and reduce production costs.

The state-of-the-art, high-speed laser is capable of cutting all possible gauges and thickness from sidewalls, decks, and floor sheets, to custom components designed to fit each customer’s specific tank project requirements.

The new laser will allow Tarsco to produce parts in less time, with a significant increase in quality. The new Bystronic ByTrans Extended 3015 laser will improve all facets of the bolted tank operations including:

•    Increase efficiencies in fabrication production by cutting more accurately and forming edges, preventing pre-treatment and polishing of each edge
•    Enhanced safety features: the entire laser is fully enclosed with a cage. The only access point is guarded by a light curtain that disarms all mechanical functions when an operator passes through it.
•    Better fit-up out in the field leading to a more erector-friendly construction of our product
•    Program designed components allowing less time in engineering

The new laser is also equipped with the ByTower allowing the machine to store enough material so that the laser may run through an entire shift without having to be managed continuously by an operator.
