High-Speed Fiber-Optic Laser Cutting
American Sheet Metal’s professional services include fast and precise laser cutting with the FOCUS 3015 KR2000 system.
In the past, manufacturers have relied on slow, inaccurate rack-and-pinion drives to laser-cut metal. More recently, they’ve resorted to plate repositioning to work with bigger sizes.
With the FOCUS, we can process both small- and large-format material with efficiency once thought possible only for smaller systems. Its linear machine-motion schematic supplies high acceleration (up to 2G) at cutting-feed rates, speed-optimized axes and a height-following axis. This drives quick and accurate production of sheet metal, including failsafe processing of highly reflective materials.
In addition, the FOCUS’ state-of-the-art fiber-optic technology frees us from having to move the laser source or the plate, allowing us to laser-cut metal at up to 1,770 in/min.
The system’s head further maintains consistent distances between the laser and the sheet metal. A capacitive sensor ensures fast, exact, drift-free measurements at any operating temperature or rate of acceleration.
American Sheet Metal’s laser cutting provides much-needed solutions for professions such as:
- precision work
- architectural artwork
- machinery manufacturing
