Large format plate laser cutting
- February 24, 2015
The Lasertex series from Koike Aronson is a large format plate cutting laser system for oversized parts for industries such as mining, energy, construction, military vehicles, agriculture and shipbuilding.
It uses high speed, common line cutting to reduce cycle time by 20 to 30 per cent and remnant scrap costs by 1 to 5 per cent, claims the company. A Sigmabox design seals the laser beam's path to keep airborne particulates away from laser mirror surfaces. The Sigmabox design also allows unlimited width and length of cut.
The machine is available in 4 kW and 6 kW models to cut mild steel from 3.175 to 25.4 mm (0.125 to 1 in.) and stainless from 1.59 to 15. 88 mm (0.0625 to 0.625 in.) or up to 25.4 mm (1 in.) with the optional nitrogen system.
