High speed tube and pipe cutting

Share This Post

Mazak Optonics Corp.’s new Tube Gear 2D laser cutting machine features high speed capabilities for thin-walled applications for increased efficiency and a significant reduction in cost per part compared to similar tube and pipe cutting systems, claims the company.

Available with a 2.5 kW or 4kW resonator, the machine can process round and rectangular tube and pipe with diameters of up to 6 in. (152 mm). It has a standard 5 in. (127 mm) Servo Focus torch and can make cuts at a rapid traverse rate of up to 6,299 ipm (16,000 m/min).

The machine is equipped with a triple chuck system, which minimizes warp and material vibration, allowing for high accuracy and high speed processing of material up to 21.3 ft (6.5 m) long. It also includes a bundle material load/unload system for increased throughput for large lot sizes up to 4.2 tons while still comprising a smaller footprint than similar machines.

Other standard features include an automated lens focal distance measurement system, automated calibration function and a nozzle cleaning system. There is also an optional automated nozzle change system to significantly reduce machine set-up times.
