Mazak Optonics to Debut New Optiplex Fiber with Zeta-7 at Fabtech
Press release date: August 1, 2014
Elgin, Illinois — Mazak Optonics Corporation will debut their new OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber laser-cutting system with a Zeta-7 cutting head and Preview 3 Control at FABTECH. The brand new Zeta-7 cutting head features breakthrough intelligent functions to automate and optimize the OPTIPLEX Fiber laser process. This new technology incorporates a Mazak-exclusive cutting head design which reduces operator dependency and improves cut quality and productivity, especially for challenging varied workpiece materials. Zeta-7 intelligent functions include beam diameter control, nozzle changing, focus calibration, auto focus control, pierce sensing, plasma detection and burn detection.
Compared to conventional laser processing machines, the OPTIPLEX Fiber significantly increases the productivity of thin to thick worksheet cutting with impressive accuracy. It is also designed to process reflective materials at greater speeds than its CO2 counterpart and can significantly reduce operating costs for applicable material types and thicknesses.
The OPTIPLEX Fiber uses the new Mazak PreView 3 CNC Control which features a user-friendly 15” touch-screen control and automatically determines the required processing conditions for the material, prior to cutting.
FABTECH attendees are invited to visit Booth B3525 to see the OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber system and Zeta-7 cutting head in action, along with a new compact automation system and other leading-edge laser technology.
