Trumpf showed its compact, flexible TruLaser 2030 CNC 3.2kW sheet material cutting and profiling cell with automated work handling and higly durable laser resonator.
Trumpf’s TruLaser 2030 was shown at this week’s MACH 2008 machine tool exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham, UK It is sold as an ‘off the shelf’ automated machine that includes Trumpf’s latest laser resonator, cutting process and automated material handling
Its integral load and unload equipment provides a compact and highly productive flexible manufacturing cell.
The flat bed laser has the high powered 3.2kW TruCoax CO2 diffusion-cooled laser that delivers exceptional beam quality.
This is a compact and highly durable laser whose high-frequency excitation requires minimal gas consumption by comparison with direct current excitation.
Thanks to its magnetic turbo radial blowers the laser also requires little maintenance.
The laser will cut mild steel up to 20mm thick, stainless steel up to 10mm and aluminium up to 8mm thick.
One common laser head will cut different thicknesses.
The laser head is also lighter, having a body of titanium.
* Operation – to start production the vacuum frame of the TruLaser 2030 lifts the blank sheet from the loading station, moves it onto the workstation and places it on the cutting table.
The frame then leaves the work area and prepares the next blank for processing.
At the end of the production cycle and unloading forks remove the finished parts including any sheet skeletons.
Other key features of the TruLaser 2030 include the following.
* A moving enclosure that provides safe operation with easy access to the processing area.
* The machine is available in two working area sizes allowing fabricators to use the material size that best fits their needs.
* The options are 3m x 1.25m or 3m x 1.5m; Z axis is 115mm. Request a free brochure from Trumpf …
