Cincinnati introduces CLX fiber laserClick image to enlarge

Cincinnati Incorporated (CI) has introduced the CLX fiber laser machine.

The CLX was designed to improve functionality in a lights out environment, and was developed and built from the ground up.

“We left the younger guys alone and let them free think. Because they’re new to the company, they didn’t have any reason to dwell on what was done in the past,” said Troy Wilson, CNC table products product manager.

The CLX is an automation-ready, 3m x 1.5m and 4m x 2m dual pallet solution that has half the total frame weight of previous iterations. The CLX has improved intelligence that allows it to self-manage, so it can keep things moving and keep cutting material.

Users will get the familiar and intuitive CI control, dual 22-inch touchscreen monitors and four interior cameras with different aspect ratios.

CI partners also contributed features. nLight produced the CLX light source, a 15 kW Corona laser. The company added predictive technology as well, enabling preventive maintenance to supplant repair. Automation specialists Beckhoff added IoT integration, remote communication with the CLX and software help tools. And Laser Mechanisms’ software package lets operators track what’s going on with the head in real time.
