The 3D Fiber Laser-Cutting Machine with Beam Control
Mazak Optonics Corp. has released the latest in its 3D laser-cutting line up, the FG-400 NEO.
The FG-400 NEO features a 3D cutting head that maximizes flexibility and range of movement, expanding the range of potential applications. A-axis and B-axis capabilities of the laser head enable cutting of tube, pipe, and structural material at any desired angle.
Proprietary beam shape and diameter technology allows more control during the cutting process. The FG-400 NEO automatically adjusts beam diameter and allows users the capability to select beam shape—where the power density of the laser beam is concentrated. This advanced technology efficiently processes various materials, features, and thicknesses.
A four-chuck work support system extends the machine’s capacity and prevents material distortion. Specialized equipment enables high-accuracy cutting of heavier material with larger diameters and lengths.
Additional equipment options allow enhanced processing of material. Machines can be customized with a chain conveyor system, touch sensor, tapping unit, flat bar handling unit, and automatic workpiece measurement function to tailor machine operations for numerous applications.
Mazak’s FX TUBE software provides further optimization through efficient nesting of material, visual simulation of the cutting process, and the ability to create a production schedule.
