Jenoptik Launches 3D Metal Cutting Laser Machine at IMTS 2012.


Jenoptik will unveil JENOPTIK-VOTAN« BIM and demonstrate its latest technology breakthrough in laser metal processing at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2012) in booth N-6569 from September 10 to 15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

"We are excited to introduce to the US market our robot-based 3D metal cutting laser machine, JENOPTIK-VOTAN« BIM," says Christon Manzella, Vice President Business Development and Strategies at JENOPTIK Laser Technologies in the U.S. "Smartly engineered JENOPTIK-VOTAN« BIM provides industrial manufacturers a highly flexible, fast processing and cost-effective laser machine solution that carries several advantages over standard laser machines."

JENOPTIK-VOTAN« BIM's laser robot arm is unique in that the optical fiber is located only in the stationary robot shoulder and the laser beam path is totally integrated. During the cutting process the laser light is guided by means of mirrors. Due to the immobility of the laser fiber its condition is preserved, which eliminates any costly maintenance and replacement of the fiber. The slim and only five kilograms light laser cutting head also contributes to the accessibility into tight locations, high path accuracies and high speed 3D metal processing.

Additionally, Jenoptik's laser arm's axis movements are 30 to 60 percent quicker than the norm and deliver a much shorter tact time compared to conventional metal processing laser robots. In the field of 3D metal processing, Jenoptik delivers a technological competitive advantage for its customers and serves the automotive industry, white goods fabrication as well as reservoir construction.

Metal Processing with Jenoptik's Fiber Laser JenLas« fiber cw 1000.

Also to be showcased at IMTS is Jenoptik's laser source JenLas« fiber cw 1000, which is a highly brilliant single-mode high power fiber laser system, featuring high power stability and long lifetime. JenLas« fiber cw 1000 ensures a high processing speed can be maintained and consistent high productivity in the respective applications is achieved. Compared to the other laser sources such as CO2 lasers, fiber lasers are more energy-efficient and thus more cost-effective especially in such industrial applications as metal cutting and welding.

The live performance of the robot system, the core part of the laser machine JENOPTIK-VOTAN« BIM can be seen at IMTS, booth N-6569. For more detailed information, please visit: www.jenoptik.com/laser-metal-cutting.
