Amada's new fiber laser cutting machine equipped with Locus Beam Control (LBC) technologyClick image to enlarge

Amada's latest innovation is the Ventis-3015AJ, a fiber laser cutting machine equipped with the company's "Locus Beam Control" (LBC) technology.

The technology evolved from the company's original laser beam control technology. LBC can freely manipulate the laser beam and create an infinite number of locus patterns to meet the demands of sheet metal processing. Combined with a high brightness 4 kW fiber laser oscillator, Amada says the new laser sets "a new world standard for laser cutting speed and quality."

Indeed, the Ventis-3015AJ with LBC technology won the MM Award at Euroblech 2018.

LBC Technology is an innovative beam-forming technology to control kerf width for optimal efficiency based on  the material type and thickness being processed. This  new technology makes it possible to cut at higher speeds and raise quality to greatly improve productivity.

The main features three modes: Productivity; Quality; and Kerf Control.

Productivity Mode: Significant improvement in productivity when cutting stainless steel and aluminium. In the N2 non-oxidizing cutting of medium thick stainless steel and aluminium, the processing cost can be reduced by up to 75  per cent, in addition to the higher cutting speed  that is twice as fast when compared to conventional machines.

Quality Mode: High quality processing improves surface roughness and eliminates dross. Cut quality is ensured by reducing the surface roughness by approximately 50 per cent when compared to a conventional machine, and dross is minimised to less than 10 μm.

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 the conventional model. After processing, automated take-out equipment is dramatically improved to provide stable part removal and long, stable processing during operation.
