Amada showcased a new version of its Ventis 3015 AJ fiber laser at Fabtech in Atlanta.

The machine uses Amada’s Locus Beam Control (LBC) to achieve infinite locus patterns — ensuring optimum beam shape control for each specific cutting application. LBC technology delivers high-speed and high-quality cutting up to three times faster than a conventional fiber laser, the company says.

A high-brightness fiber laser oscillator maintains optimal quality of the high-energy density laser beam. As a result, Amada says that its Ventis fiber laser  provides virtually dross-free cutting of a variety of materials and thicknesses including stainless steel and aluminum.

Productivity Mode
In the N2 non-oxidizing cutting of medium-thick stainless steel and aluminum, processing cost can be reduced by up to 75%.

Quality Mode
Cut quality is ensured by reducing the surface roughness by approximately 50% when compared to a conventional machine and dross is reduced to less than 10 μm.

Kerf Control Mode
Kerf control mode enables long-term stable processing during automated system operation. By oscillating the beam, the kerf width can be controlled to 2.5 times wider than a conventional machine.

The high cutting speed, reduced power consumption, and other process parameters mean that the costs of operating the 6kW VENTIS are considerably lower than a system with a higher output level.
