Laser Cutting System adapts to process at hand for best results.
Press Release Summary:
October 12, 2012 - Without relying on pre-defined parameters, Adaptive Laser Cutting (ALC™) system provides real-time monitoring and feedback control of laser cutting process to maximize productivity and QC while minimizing scrap. Dynamic feedback system is used to monitor and regulate laser power, speed, and assist gas pressure in real-time during cutting process, automatically optimizing cutting parameters and ensuring consistently accurate cut. ALC comes standard on select Impuls Series models.

LVD Strippit Introduces Patented Adaptive Laser Cutting System for High Productivity, Consistent Processing Accuracy
Press release date: October 5, 2012
The development of ALC continues LVD’s history of innovation in the field of machine intelligence and real-time in-process control systems such as the company’s patented Easy-Form® Laser bend angle monitoring and correction system introduced in 2002, which has revolutionized the industry assuring consistent and accurate bending from the first to the last part.
ALC uses a dynamic feedback system to monitor and regulate laser power, speed and assist gas pressure in real time during the cutting process, automatically optimizing cutting parameters and ensuring a consistently accurate cut.
Unlike other process controls systems, ALC does not rely on pre-defined parameters but measures and adapts in process to achieve the optimal cutting results.
This unique system is particularly useful when processing thicker mild steels in an unmanned environment. In such applications, machine speed is often restricted to ensure reliability and account for potential variations in material properties, limiting productivity and increasing thecost per part. ALC automatically adjusts to changing conditions, processing at the highest speed with the most efficiency and so alleviates the need to restrict or control the laser cutting system, providing up to a 10 percent increase in productivity. Consistently accurate processing also eliminates scrap or rework of expensive thicker materials.
ALC is now a standard feature on select models of Impuls Series laser cutting machines.
The LVD Group is a leading manufacturer of a comprehensive range of sheet metal/plate working machine tools and software solutions, including laser cutting systems, punch presses, press brakes, guillotine shears and mid-level automation systems, integrated and supported by its CADMAN® PC-based Windows® compatible software.
