These CNCs have the capacity to deliver seamless choreography between axes motion and power modulation, even in cases of extremely high speeds when processing thin gage materials.
FANUC FA America (Hoffman Estates, IL) introduces the Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B high-speed laser controls that are capable of supporting advanced levels of high speed laser processing. These CNCs have the capacity to deliver seamless choreography between axes motion and power modulation, even in cases of extremely high speeds when processing thin gage materials.
Impressive internal laser power stabilizing characteristics deliver edge conditions on thicker materials which redefine the norm of RZ and RA (measured length of surface roughness). Truly unique in laser processing, smooth edge cross sections with superior edge finishes quantify smoothness rather than surface roughness.
Reliable and versatile, the sophistication of these new laser controls lends innovative excellence and impressive processing characteristics to the base units. These CNCs provide exceptional performance, superior technology and impressive gains in processing speeds and power modulation which translates into shorter cycle times and increased edge quality.
Relative to other CNCs in its class, the FANUC Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B Laser control has update rates of 125 microseconds, arguably 40 times faster than the rate at which a single neuron can fire within the human brain. These technological features translate to superior cut quality and accuracy that equal premium quality parts and a realized competitive distinction.
In line with other new offerings, this control provides up to 8 MB of high-capacity, non-volatile internal memory that is available to store constant inventory nests, which need not require network access to activate and run during surplus machine availability. External interaction via ATA or Compact Flash memory cards bump up an additional 2 GB of part program storage.
