Mazak Optonics Introduces New 6,000-Watt Laser-Cutting Technology
Press release date: Jul 27, 2011
The STX Mark III system is a flexible, rugged workhorse that offers significant technical advantages and standard features for a variety of material types and thicknesses. Built utilizing Mazak's proven hybrid platform, the new system's constant-beam length construction provides uniform cutting across the machine table. Additionally, the STX Mark III utilizes several advanced features found in Mazak's highend Hyper Series machines, including intelligent setup functions for automated nozzle spatter removal, a three-station nozzle changer as well as focal point measurement and adjustment capability. These functions are part of the Mazak Opti-Pod, which helps minimize system setup time and extends unattended operation for longer periods of time while still maintaining optimized machining conditions.
The STX Mark III also incorporates a Servo Focus Torch and High Accuracy Auto Centering Lens and Nozzle. The servo driven system significantly reduces piercing time, while the lens and nozzle design further reduces setup time and increases pierce, plasma and poor cut sensing to ensure consistent performance over a wide range of materials. Together, these technologies yield a considerable increase in productivity. Mazak Optonics paid special attention to flexibility throughout the design of the STX Mark III, evident in the fact it is available in 4' x 8', 5' x 10' and 6' x 12' table configurations and offers three power output levels: 2.5 kW, 4.0 kW and 6.0 kW. It is also available with a large range of automated material handling systems, including Load/Unload Cells and Flexible Manufacturing Systems.
