Designed specifically as an entry-level flat-bed laser system, the HD-FO fibre laser manufactured by Turkey-based Durma is a compact, competitively priced and easily transportable machine designed specifically to accommodate sheet up to a maximum size of 3 000mm by 1 500mm. The maximum sheet weight is 575kg.
The HD-FO can be specified with a Durma fibre laser power source of 1kW or 2kW (the focus length is 125mm, and focusing is automatic). Moreover, the machine offers the easy loading and unloading of sheet via a quick-opening front door, without the need for a shuttle table.
Cutting capacities for the 1kW laser are: 8mm for mild steel, 4mm for stainless steel, aluminium and brass and 2mm for copper.
The corresponding capacities for the 2kW laser are 12mm, 6mm and 3mm respectively. Axis strokes are 3 080mm by 1 530mm by 125mm for the XYZ axes respectively, with maximum axis speeds of 90m/min in X and Y (30m/min in Z) for a maximum synchronous speed of 127m/min and a synchronous acceleration of 14m/sec2.
The positional accuracy and repeatability are ±0.05mm. Control is via a Siemens Sinumerik 840D SL system with a 19” touch panel, a Durma operator interface and a complete cutting database for all standard cutting applications; this includes the cutting parameters for most frequently profiled materials and common thickness ranges, although operators can fine-tune the parameters to optimise the cutting quality for certain materials.
