2.4.TEST PROTOTYPES

We love orders with a high number of units, but we want to make sure we are doing things right before starting to produce large batches. LB reserves the right to pause an order where the technical difficulty or the number of units is greater than usual. LB may propose via mail to the client user to carry out a manufacturing test prior to the original order. The amount of this test phase will be different depending on each case.

3. MATERIAL, FINISHES and PRODUCTION SPECIFICATIONS

3.1. ABSENCE OF SPECIFICATIONS

LB reserves the right not to manufacture parts with missing specifications. Orders with missing specifications will be put on hold until the customer indicates how to proceed.

LB reserves the right to proceed with a production if the only missing specification in the order is the finish. LB will choose the finish.

3.2. MATERIAL IDENTITY

LB uses safe, standardised and fully identity certified materials. LB complies with the manufacture of orders with material of the same identity as shown in the material selection in the order configuration.

3.3. MATERIAL PROPERTIES

 

All materials used by LB are subject to tolerances and variations related to the manufacturing, handling and storage of the material supply itself. You are aware of the existence of typical variations of metals in the mentioned points, which may affect the following characteristics (non-exhaustive list): colour, thickness, weight, hardness, composition, texture, roughness, density, elastic modulus, thermal conductivity, thermal expansion coefficient, electrical resistance, melting point, oxidation resistance, magnetic capacity, torsion and chemical reactivity among others.

 

The fluctuating tolerances of these characteristics are aligned with the standards of the international standard of identity for the sub-supply of that material or alloy. You can consult this identity in our Table of material equivalences between territorial standards.

3.4. PRODUCTION SPECIFICATIONS

LB follows a strict and rigorous maintenance and calibration of our machines and tools, being able to manufacture parts with full control.

LB is not responsible for the following production cases that are beyond the control of our machines, processes and plant logistics:

  • 3.4.1 – HEAT CURVATURE: Our laser process generates a temperature increase in the parts during cutting. It is possible that the flatness of the part is affected by this. This may be caused by a design with a high cutting density and/or an inadequate thickness for the design. LB is not responsible if the customer’s choice of material and design can cause this effect.
  • 3.4.2 – DEFORMATION IN FINISHES: Our finishes generate heat and mechanical pressure on the parts. Small, delicate, thin parts or parts made of soft materials may be affected. LB is not responsible for the customer’s choice of material and design that may generate this effect.
  • 3.4.3 – INTERNAL STRESS: The laminated material has internal manufacturing stresses that can cause a part to have a lack of flatness along its length. E.g.: A strip of 2000 mm x 5mm. LB will place your part in the same position as the orientation it has in your file, placing the laminate of the sheet horizontally. LB is not responsible for the customer’s choice of material and design that may generate this effect.
  • 3.4.4 – BACK SIDE: When manufacturing with Natural finish (or 2B or “unfinished”) or in parts without a specific back finish: The customer is aware and accepts the existence of burrs, marks from the supply itself, sparks, dark areas among other imperfections.
  • 3.4.5 – CUT IN / CUT OUT: Laser technology needs a start and end cutting point for each of the contours of the part. It is at these points where the entry or “microjoint” can appear, a small protrusion from the part, between 0.2 mm and 0.45 mm. The customer is aware and accepts the existence of this small irregularity.
  • 3.4.6 – EDGE FINISHES: LB uses the most suitable gas for laser cutting for each alloy and material thickness. The edges may have different shades between parts of the same order or between different orders, as well as variations in the perpendicularity of the cut.
  • 3.4.7 – MINIMUM OPERATIBILITY RADIUS: LB cutting technology cannot produce edges with a live edge finish (no radius). In cases where there is no specific radius on edges of the customer’s design, an automatic radius of 0.2 mm can be applied if necessary.

3.5 AESTHETIC SPECIFICATIONS

LB offers a wide variety of finishes and options for the manufacture of metal parts. The customer is aware of and accepts the following aesthetic aspects on his parts.

  • 3.5.1 – GENERAL: The parts manufactured by LB take shape through a multi-stage industrial process. LB is concerned about the cleanliness of the products manufactured in its facilities. Even so, a production in which the products may contain: dust, dirt, fingerprints or stains, among others, will be considered as valid.
  • 3.5.2 – NATURAL FINISH: Also called 2B or without specific or factory finish. This finish may contain imperfections and marks on the exposed face such as: scratches, marks, fingerprints or shadows among others.
  • 3.5.3 – PREMIUM BRUSHED FINISH (applicable to one or two sides): The finish shall be applied on the sides indicated in the configurator. It does not include the edges of the part. The direction of the brushing is always horizontal with respect to the position of the part in the file.
  • 3.5.4 – PREMIUM BRILLIANT FINISH (applicable to one or two sides): The finish is applied on the sides indicated in the configurator. It does not include the edges of the part.
  • 3.5.5 – BRILLIANT / BRILLIANT FINISH WITH PROTECTIVE FILM: The finish is applied on the front side of the part. The parts shall be delivered with the protective film attached, this can be removed manually.
  • 3.5.6 – VIBRATED FINISH: The vibrated finish is applied on both sides of the part. It does not include the edges of the part.
  • 3.5.7 – SANDBLAST FINISH: Sandblasted finish is applied on both sides of the part. The edges are affected by defect in the process. This is not an aesthetic finish, but a cleaning and surface roughness generation finish. On parts larger than 100 mm x 100 mm, the finish may contain shadows or irregularities in the shade. The finish is equally efficient with or without the regular visual appearance.

3.6. TOLERANCES

LB keeps all its equipment calibrated and under a strict maintenance program.

  • 3.4.1 – CUTTING TOLERANCES: Linear cutting tolerances in the X and Y axes are ±0.15 mm on sheet thicknesses between 0.1 mm~3 mm and ±0.3 mm on sheet thicknesses between 3 mm~10 mm.
  • 3.4.1 – TOLERANCE COMPLIANCE EXCEPTIONS: LB ensures compliance with tolerances for those materials with Natural (or without finish designation), Vibratory and Protective Film finishes. The customer understands, is aware and accepts that the other finishes may generate a distortion in the part higher than the cutting tolerance, due to the mechanical pressure and temperature to which the part is subjected during the production of the most aesthetic finishes.

LB ensures the tolerances in those parts that comply with the minimum safe manufacturing dimensions shown in the design guide. Some examples (indicative and non-exhaustive list) are: Minimum diameter of holes or minimum distance between part contours, among others.
