Air-cooled cutting head on 6 kW fiber laser – Salvagnini

Salvagnini has introduced a new fiber laser cutting system, the L3-30 fiber laser designed with a new air-cooled cutting head and 6 kW resonator.

The new fiber laser complements the company’s 2 kW, 3 kW and 4 kW product lines. The machine is equipped with a new, air-cooled cutting head with adjustable optics for cutting both thin and thick materials.

Air-cooling is made possible by the addition of a Pelletier plate to the assembly, making nitrogen gas cooling unnecessary. A new collimator enables easy, fast adjustment for cutting materials of different thicknesses. The new Salvagnini cutting head assembly simplifies laser cutting production, making solid, clean and reliable cuts, with no contaminants to obscure the lens.

As with all Salvagnini machine systems, flexible automation is built into every L3 fiber laser. Salvagnini’s TraJust software automatically manages cutting parameters drawing upon a database for each material and thickness to achieve consistent, high quality cuts. Salvagnini technology allows sheets of different materials and thicknesses to be processed in sequence without stopping production and with setups occurring in masked time.

Salvagnini fiber laser systems can be accessorised with a full range of material handling systems. There is a Salvagnini storage tower to suit every application, including new, compact LTW and LTWC towers that require no additional floor space. An L3 features automatic loading and automatic skeleton removal. The addition of an MCL provides a pick and place capability so that no “shake and break” activity is necessary.

For a flexible manufacturing system setting, investigate Salvagnini OPS software that enables the fiber lasers to seamlessly exchange information with a company’s ERP software to optimise productivity, creating a lean factory that will maximise profits far into the future.
