Elgin, Illinois –áMazak Optonics Corp. will feature the OPTIPLEX 3015 4kW Fiber laser-cutting system in booth #1305 at FABTECH Canada this March. 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 0.875” in stainless steel and 0.750” in aluminum with impressive accuracy. The fiber design can also significantly reduce operating costs for applicable material types and thicknesses.
Compared to conventional laser processing machines, the OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber machine increases the productivity of thin worksheet cutting with traverse rates of up to 4,724 ipm. The rugged construction of the system provides heightened accuracy, reliability, and greater part throughput. The OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber can also be integrated into a wide range of automation systems with the potential to further increase productivity.
The OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber uses Mazak’s new PreView 3 CNC Control which features a user-friendly 15” touch-screen 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 eco-friendliness, 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.
