CO2 Laser Cutting System

HARRISON, Ohio, Feb. 19, 2013 — The CL-400 CO2 laser cutting system from Cincinnati Inc. uses water-cooled, high-speed linear motor drives and HMI touch-screen control and nesting software.

Dual 1.5 × 3-m pallets and an optional modular materials handling system reduce beam-off time and boost productivity. Designed for high throughput and materials versatility, the CL-400 delivers fast positioning speeds of 12,000 ipm and an up to 1-in. processing range on mild steel.

The system features a 4000-W resonator for cutting precision.

The linear motor drives make fast work of large parts or batch processing of smaller parts, while delivering dynamic positioning accuracy of ±0.001 in. at high cutting speeds. The machine’s heavy 0.75- to 1.5-in. steel plate frame provides durability, stability and accuracy. The steel plate is cut, formed, welded, stress-relieved and precision-machined to make a rigid base for all the laser’s components. The separate load frame is made of 1.5-in. plate steel to withstand repetitive loading and unloading without affecting the cutting process.

The resonator features a low-speed, oil-free turbine for laser use and a gas filtration module that continuously purifies the gases flowing through it, providing a clean, low-maintenance laser that meets the demands of a three-shift operation.

The intuitive Windows-based HMI control enables operators to produce good parts independently and is compatible with all other Cincinnati laser systems. The company’s Laser Programming and Nesting software increases productivity and optimizes materials usage by selecting the best-sized sheet for a parts nest, useful for systems with automated materials handling. The software automatically performs sequencing, process optimization and feature avoidance, allowing the machine to run head-down without risk of crashing into tipped-up slugs. It adjusts part programs and codes to the machine’s speed, acceleration/deceleration and processing capabilities, avoiding the need to write or modify part programs.
