Amada America provides two types of part-separation and stacking automation for laser- and CNC punching-machine sheet nests: the PSR (Part Sorting Robot, pictured) and TK (TaKeout) systems. “For larger laser-machine offerings, the PSR3015 system removes the entire sheet from the laser, with the laser continuing to cut the next sheet,” says Phil Picardat, the company’s product manager for automation. “The part-sorting robot grabs individual parts out of the skeleton and stacks them onto a pallet.”
Norton BlazeX F970 Fiber Discs, the next generation of Blaze®, enable faster rust removal, and enhanced cleaning and detailing processes for better finishes. An improved micro-fracturing grain which consistently exposes sharper grain edges, results in a better cut rate, and longer disc life when compared to blended ceramic alumina discs. BlazeX F970 Fiber Discs enhance operator control in stock removal, deburring, blending and other applications.
offers roboTest N, a collaborative six-axis robot (cobot) that enables
automatic feed and disposal of test specimens when using material- and
product-testing machines. With safety features built into the arm
itself, no safety enclosures are required, enabling the automatic system
to be installed (on new and existing machines) and operated easily and
within proximity to humans. Watch Video
your blowoff, cooling, and drying operation to our award winning
engineered Super Air Nozzles. EXAIR's Super Air Nozzles are a simple
solution to reduce excessive air consumption and noise levels on
compressed air blowoff operations. Force ranging from 2 ounces to 23
pounds. Wide variety of sizes and materials.
The Coherent HighLight DL HPS is an industrial diode laser offering high power output―1 to 4 kW―in a compact, self-contained package, making it particularly useful for systems integrators and end users performing metal cladding, heat treating, brazing and welding. The laser employs an all-in–one configuration, meaning that the laser head, power supply, water chiller and heat exchanger all are contained in a single enclosure, measuring only 670 by 1050 by 1760 mm. the compact size makes it suitable for space-constrained applications, such as those often found in the automotive industry.
WEBER PT is the perfect deburring machine for lasered, punched and
nibbled parts. It handles deburring, rounding, descaling and surface
grinding of thin sheets and heavy plates. Up to four grinding stations
allow for all machining variations. Improved accessibility for
maintenance; modular design; and optional simultaneous top/bottom
machining are just some of the advantages of the WEBER PT.

L.S. Starrett Co. has introduced MetLogix Mx200 digital readouts (DROs)
for its line of optical comparators. The DROs combine an intuitive user
experience with current touchscreen conventions and a range of
functionality. The Mx200 is a shop-hardened DRO, with a sealed rubber
keypad and durable powder-coated enclosure ideal in any environment from
the shop floor to the quality control lab.
Cut 3D parts after they’ve been formed. Bent tubes, hydroformed components, tubular assemblies, deep drawn parts, flat or stamped plates can be trim and cut with maximum efficiency and excellent cut quality every time. The LT-Free replaces traditional machining operations and allows you to get the finished part in a single work cycle.
announced that the first-ever laser-cutting machine assembled at its
new 165,000-sq.-ft. facility in Hoffman Estates, IL, has rolled off the
line. The machine, a BySmart Fiber 3015, available with an 8- or 10-kW
fiber laser, can be shipped virtually fully assembled to most North
American locations. The firm also plans to begin, later in 2020,
assembling the BySmart Fiber 4020 at its U.S. facility.
AMADA’s LBC Technology creates infinite locus patterns—ensuring the optimum beam shape for each specific cutting application. This results in the highest quality cuts in both stainless and mild steel and the best edge quality in aluminum with virtually no dross. The VENTIS 3015 AJ leverages a high-brightness fiber laser oscillator to maintain optimum quality of the high-energy density laser beam. Unique cutting capabilities and exceptional speed enable the 4kW VENTIS to easily rival fiber lasers utilizing much higher wattage at a considerably lower operating cost.
new RS-Squared area scanner, manufactured by Hexagon Metrology and
re-sold by Exact Metrology, is a 3D scanner compatible with all
current-generation Absolute Arm seven-axis systems. The RS-Squared
allows users to perform high-speed scans of simple shapes and surfaces,
and is best suited to the scanning of large parts with lower detail
requirements, such as automotive parts. Watch Video
has introduced Intelligent Collision Avoidance (ICA), a new algorithm
that minimizes potential collisions between the head of fiber laser
cutting machines and the contours of the sheet metal during the cutting
process. This development, according to company officials, continues an
evolution toward full automation and unattended cutting by minimizing
the risk of machine shutdowns due to collisions. Watch Video
Abrasives has introduced custom flap wheels, allowing users to specify
materials, grit pattern, flexibility of flap wheels, mounting options
and more, to match abrasives precisely to the project at hand. This
customization allows manufacturers to match abrasives to their
application requirements to more efficiently process the workpiece. Watch Video
