LVD have introduced the Axel 4020 to their line of high performance Axel laser cutting systems.
The Axel 4020 laser cutting system, available from GWB Machine Tools , provides advanced laser cutting capabilities and dynamic part processing, and can handle sheets up to 4 x 2 metres.
The Axel 4020 laser cutting machine/system incorporates recent advancements in linear drive technology, laser power and control systems to provide higher cutting capabilities, high flexibility and easy use.
The Axel 4020 laser cutting system can offer maximum performance when processing thin sheets and thick materials. The high pressure (clean cut) cutting head can hold a 5”, 7.5” or 10” cutting lens.
The high-pressure cutting head produces clean cuts and is equipped with a safety system that protects the head from collision with the workpiece.
The high beam quality of the Axel 4020 laser cutting machine/system allows processing of thin material at high speeds up to 40 metres/minimum and thick material up to 25mm mild steel with high quality surface finishes.
The laser source, CNC, PLC and motors are integrated and interfaced as a complete system to optimise machine performance, offering high speed or reliability, low operating and maintenance costs.
The integrated control provides reproduction of programmed contours, producing acute angles at high speeds. All parameters, diagnostic and start-up procedures are displayed on a colour screen. The 32-bit control also features powerful mathematical capabilities and an extensive material library.
The frame design incorporates high precision hardened guideways and optimal drive systems to achieve high-speed acceleration and positioning speeds. The rigid frame construction minimises deformation caused by high acceleration, improving overall machine accuracy.
LVD’s Axel 4020 laser cutting system features a constant beam length system that keeps the diameter of the laser beam constant, maintaining a fixed focal point position. The result is higher cutting speeds and higher cut quality maintained over the entire working area.
The Axel 4020 laser cutting system is designed with a modular construction. The machine is standard with integrated shuttle tables for continuous and uninterrupted part processing. The shuttle table design allows one table to be loaded while the machine is cutting on the other table, maximising uptime.
The Axel 4020 laser cutting system is available with an automated load/unload system and can be retrofitted with such a system at a later date.
