Take Another Cut

Here are some of the latest advances in laser, waterjet and plasma cutting controls, drive systems, system configuration and construction, automation and material handling capabilities.

With so many advances in technology offering potential competitive advantages, many shops that already own a laser, waterjet or plasma cutting system are revisiting how long ago they bought it and asking: What has changed since then?

Smart Workhorse for Laser Cutting, Drilling and Welding Large Parts
The advanced controls and spacious gantry configuration of the five-axis LASERDYNE 890 fiber laser system from Prima Power Laserdyne helps set-up large, complex parts faster for more efficient high-value part processing.

High Precision Free-Form Waterjet Cutting
FiveX abrasive waterjets from Water Jet Sweden can perform five-axis 3D finishing of fabricated structures, pressed parts, molded composite parts and other 3D parts made of hardened steel, titanium, Kevlar and carbon fiber.

High-Value Plasma Cutting Improves Cut Quality, Increases Production
Starting at $65,995, the I-Cut Plasma CNC Level 3 system from Laguna Tools utilizes the most advanced servo controls and laser alignment from Thermal Dynamics for production cutting up to 1.25 in.

Thin Sheet Metal Laser Cutting with Exceptional Accuracy
The high precision SRC-610 three-axis pulsed fiber laser system from Legend Laser can cut sheet metal with a thickness between 0.02 mm and 1 mm at speeds ranging from a few mm per second to a hundred mm per second.

How to Maximize Sorting Flexibility for Unloading Laser Cut Parts
The BySort add-on module unloads and sorts individual parts by job to expand the flexibility of the ByTrans Cross automation system for loading and unloading laser cutting systems from Bystronic.

Automatic Garnet Feeding Increases Waterjet Cutting Productivity
The JET-FEED Garnet Delivery System from Flexicon automatically feeds garnet directly from bulk bags to waterjet cutters to eliminate worker fatigue, potential injury, labor, spillage, dust, downtime and higher material cost associated with manually dumping heavy bags.

Debris Shields for Fiber Laser Cutting
Reducing focus shift and deterioration of beam quality, Sapphire Fiber Laser Windows from Laser Research Optics shield debris on high power lasers from 4 kW up and withstand steel splatter and flash better than fused silica for extended life and fewer changes.

Dynamic Scrap Handling Increases Coil-Fed Laser Blanking Speed
Coil-fed laser blanking systems from LaserCoil rely on a series of dynamic profile conveyor lanes that independently adjust, reposition and automatically shed scrap to maintain a clear path for the cutting process.
