Large-format laser system features small footprint
Prima Power Laserdyne offers the model 430 precision laser system. It combines high precision and large-format workholding capabilities for industrial laser welding and cutting.
The company will show the system at IMTS 2012 with a rack-mounted fiber laser with more than 1,400 W of peak power requiring 110 V of input power and no water cooling. This combination results in a small footprint for a laser system of this capability, the company reports.
The system is designed for processing a variety of laser-welded or laser-machined products using a basic three-axis motion system available with integrated rotation and tilt axes for full five-axis motion. Features include a vertical machining center base structure, S94P motion control system, front and side access, and multiple laser options from fiber and fiber-delivered sources.
The laser machine operates at speeds up to 800 IPM in the X, Y, and Z axes, with bidirectional accuracy of 0.0005 in. throughout the system's 23- by 16- by 20-in. work envelope.
