Mazak Introduces 6kW Direct Diode Laser at FABTCH

Mazak Optonics Corporation releases breatkthrough direct diode laser-cutting technology at FABTECH ATLANTA in booth #B7529. Mazak Optonics will showcase two laser-cutting machines and one automation system with the highlight being the launch of the OPTIPLEX 3015 DDL 6kW.

OPTIPLEX DDL represents the next generation of game changing solid state laser technology. It utilizes a flying optics, 2 pallet changer design with a new MAZATROL PREVIEW G control and high performance digital drive package. The OPTIPLEX DDL features a helical rack and pinion positioning system that delivers higher cutting speeds for maximum throughput.

The cutting-edge MAZATROL PREVIEW G control with 19” SXGA TFT touch screen monitor includes integrated technology tables that simplify operation. The control provides higher productivity through high-speed and high-accuracy. The new advanced hardware offers state of the art CPU for unsurpassed operation speed, high-response and high-speed machine motion. The MAZATROL PREVIEW G control provides optimum acceleration and deceleration for the reduction of cutting time plus tolerance control ensures high-speed corner cutting. The laser control generates optimum laser power in the minimum time to improve performance for fly cutting and sharp edge cutting.

The OPTIPLEX 3015 DDL combines Mazak’s Intelligent Functions with the Multi-Control Torch to directly increase the productivity of the end user by allowing the machine to optimize setup automatically per program.

The OPTIPLEX 3015 DDL can be integrated into Mazak’s extensive range of automation solutions. The machine can also be integrated into an AUTOMATED STORAGE/RETRIEVAL system for even greater capacity.
