Elgin, Illinois – Mazak Optonics Corp. will demonstrate a new lineup of bigger, stronger and faster machines at FABTECH, booth number S921. Their featured machines will include the world premiere of the TUBE GEAR 150 CO2 2D for high-speed tube and pipe cutting, two of their industry-leading OPTIPLEX CO2 laser-cutting systems with powerful 6kW and expanded 4020 (6' by 12') configurations, and their OPTIPLEX 3015 4kW Fiber machine paired with a new Tekmag compact FMS.
Compared to conventional laser processing machines, the OPTIPLEX 3015 4kW Fiber machine significantly increases the productivity of thin worksheet cutting. This increased productivity paired with the efficiency and convenience of a customized Tekmag FMS creates an unstoppable manufacturing powerhouse.
The OPTIPLEX 3015 4kW Fiber laser is designed to process reflective materials with greater thicknesses and at greater speeds than its CO2 counterpart and can cut up to 0.750" in stainless steel and 0.625" in aluminum with impressive accuracy. The fiber design can also significantly reduce operating costs for applicable material types and thicknesses.
The machine uses Mazak's PreView CNC Control which features a user-friendly 15" touch-screen control and automatically determines the required processing conditions for the material prior to cutting. In addition to its user-friendliness, the OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber is environmentally friendly. Mazak manufactures their machines in an underground, eco-friendly factory with ISO-4001 certification. Further adding to its ecofriendliness, the OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber offers an 80% reduction in oscillator and chiller electrical power consumption as well as a 100% reduction in laser and optical path gases when compared to conventional laser processing.
Mazak Optonics Corp. encourages all FABTECH attendees to visit booth S921 to see the latest leading-edge laser technology in action.
