Laser Cutting at 6kWSeptember 1, 2011
Mazak Optonics Corp., Elgin, IL, has taken its SuperTurbo-X Mark III 2D laser-cutting system to a whole new level by increasing its power output to 6000 W, increasing its capacity in mild and stainless steels. The STX Mark III utilizes Mazak’s hybrid platform and provides constant-beam length construction for uniform cutting across the machine table.
Additionally, the system utilizes several advanced features found in Mazak’s high-end Hyper Series machines, including intelligent setup functions for automated nozzle spatter removal, a three-station nozzle changer and focal-point measurement and adjustment capability. These functions are part of the Mazak Opti-Pod, which helps minimize system setup time and extends unattended operation for longer periods of time while still maintaining optimized machining conditions.
The machine is available in table sizes of 4 by 8, 5 by 10 and 6 by 12 ft., with power output of 2.5, 4.0 and 6.0 kW. Optional automation equipment includes load/unload cells and flexible manufacturing systems.Mazak Optonics: 847/252-4500; www.mazakoptonics.com
