Fibre laser machine
- Published: June 10, 2018
The Laser Next 2141 is the new product in Prima Power’s 3D fibre laser machine range.
All the features of the Laser Next 1530 and 2130 systems, specialized for the processing of components for the automotive industry, are available in the new product, which is designed to be as universal and multipurpose as possible.
The working volume of this machine is the largest on the market (4140 x 2100 x 1020 mm) with a very compact footprint, and it is suitable to virtually all 3D stamped and flat sheet metal part sizes. Its technological features allow it to process both three-dimensional and two-dimensional parts, and to easily switch from cutting to welding applications.
Laser Next 2141 is the perfect balance of speed, accuracy, and reliability. The linear motors on the main axes, the direct drive on the focusing head, and advanced control systems, provide the highest dynamics in its market segment, with single axis speed of 120 m/min and trajectory speed of 208 m/min. This is combined with maximum accuracy (Pa and Ps= 0.03 mm) in a very large working envelope and with the best Overall Equipment Efficiency.
Laser Next 2141 is available in different configurations to suit any production.
The standard version with Fixed Tables exploits the entire working envelope to process large parts and features great accessibility from all sides. With the Split Cabin configuration, the working volume is separated by a removable wall and a sliding roof into two halves, where the parts are alternatively processed or loaded/unloaded in total safety. In this way, machine productivity is increased and, when needed for larger parts, the wall can be removed to restore the entire working envelope. For the fastest part handling operations without machine stops (cover time operation), the Turn-Table configuration is available. This is the ideal solution for large-series production of medium- to large-size parts. The Shuttle Tables version allows the fast and automatic movement of parts and fixtures outside the working area from the sides or the front of the machine. This is the solution for allowing large and heavy parts to be handled outside the working area and in case of complex setup. Combined with the Split Cabin, the Shuttle Tables configuration also allows cover time operations.
Laser Next 2141 is equipped with either a 3 or 4 kW Prima Power fiber laser, featuring high reliability, quality pumping diodes, better protection against back-reflections, a patented highly-reactive electronic shutter, and a high integration into the system.
As all Prima Power products, Laser Next 2141 is Industry 4.0 Inside and features innovative solutions for digital manufacturing and cloud-based communication. This productive and flexible machine interacts with the factory and with the whole enterprise, and customers have the power to remotely monitor, control, and predict the production process for the highest efficiency.
