One of our newest machines in the park is a 4kW Trumpf laser model TruLaser 3530. It is a machine that sets new standards for speed and quality of processing.
This device uses an additional X axis (Xp) which carries only the cutting head. Due to the reduced weight, higher acceleration values are achieved during the positioning process. As a result, the machining process, especially for thin sheets, is much faster.
Our laser is also equipped with a Liftmaster loading module that loads the sheets of metal onto the pallet changer. This is done by moving the sheets away from the charging station using the suction cups on the machine frame. This essential feature not only helps the operator to ensure optimal machine performance, but also minimizes the risk of damaging sensitive materials.
The laser control unit of the TruLaser 3530 has also been improved. The additional PierceLine function lowers the piercing cycle time, thus saving material and reducing machine wear. Another improvement is the introduction of Flycut. It is an impressive and effective technology for the production of perforations on the laser at incredible speed. This is done by turning the laser beam on and off while the cutting head moves rapidly across the sheet.
The technological process of laser cutting.
Laser cutting is currently one of the most efficient cutting processes and enables non-contact processing of almost all material groups. Laser cutting allows you to perform a variety of cutting tasks with the highest level of quality and extremely low material losses. Regardless of whether you are processing tile-shaped materials or three-dimensional geometries - the laser enables precise micrometric cuts in metal, plastic, paper or stone.
The development of innovative fiber lasers has made laser cutting the most economical cutting process today, especially in the field of thin sheet metal processing. This is because it is possible to produce a wide variety of contours while maintaining high cutting speeds and the fact that usually the entire process does not require post-processing. Typical application examples for the laser cutting process are the production of covers, round blanks or pipe processing, sheet metal cutting, engraving and much more.
What are the laser cutting processes? Depending on the material, application and mode of operation of the laser used, laser cutting is divided into the following processes:
