Mazak Optonics: 6 W 2D Laser CuttingClick image to enlarge

Mazak Optonics Corp. has taken its SuperTurbo-X Mark III 2D laser cutting system and made it even more advanced by increasing its power output to 6,000 Watts.

This boost allows the system to meet the unique demands of processing thicker mild steel and stainless materials.

The STX Mark III system is a flexible, rugged workhorse that offers significant technical advantages and standard features for a variety of material types and thicknesses. Built utilizing Mazak's proven hybrid platform, the new system's constant-beam length construction provides uniform cutting across the machine table.

Additionally, the machine uses several advanced features found in Mazak's high end Hyper Series machines, including intelligent setup functions for automated nozzle spatter removal, a three-station nozzle changer as well as focal point measurement and adjustment capability. These functions are part of the Mazak Opti-Pod, which helps minimize system setup time and extends unattended operation for longer periods of time while still maintaining optimized machining conditions.

The STX Mark III also incorporates a Servo Focus Torch and High Accuracy Auto Centering Lens and Nozzle. The servo driven system significantly reduces piercing time, while the lens and nozzle design further reduces setup time and increases pierce, plasma and poor cut sensing to ensure consistent performance over a wide range of materials. Together, these technologies yield a considerable increase in productivity.

Flexibility is a key design component. The machine is available in 1.2 m x 2.4 m x 1.5 m x 3.0 m (4 ft x 8 ft, 5 ft x 10 ft and 6 ft) x 3.6 m (12 ft) table configurations and offers three power output levels: 2.5 kW, 4.0 kW and 6.0 kW. It is also available with a large range of automated material handling systems, including Load/Unload Cells and Flexible Manufacturing Systems.
