Part-Separation and Stacking Automation for Sheet Nests
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.”

New Fiber Discs Have 50% Faster Cut Rate in Carbon Steel & Soft-to-Grind Materials
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.

Compact, High-Power Diode Laser in Self-Contained Package
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.

Hans Weber
Weber PT
The 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.

Bystronic Assembles its First BySmart Fiber-Laser Cutting Machine in the United States
Bystronic 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 Introduces the World’s First Fiber Laser Cutting System with Locus Beam Control (LBC)
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.
