TRUMPF Nozzle Changer Offers Flexibility in Unattended Flatsheet Laser Cutting Operations
FARMINGTON, Conn., May 25, 2005 - A new nozzle changer from TRUMPF facilitates automated laser cutting operations. The automatic nozzle changer eliminates the need for operator intervention during job setup, enhances process safety, and provides additional flexibility in unmanned multi-shift operations. The new nozzle changer is available on the TC L 3050, TC L 4050 and TC L 6050 machines.
Laser cutting nozzles typically need to be changed to process a different material or sheet thickness or when the nozzle is dirty or damaged. Through the use of an automatic nozzle changer and one cutting head, a large number of the cutting tasks - including those requiring nozzle changes -- can be programmed to run as unmanned operations. The programmable nozzle changer periodically replaces dirty or damaged nozzles or exchanges the nozzle whenever changing material type or thickness.
"The ability to run attended production is a huge advantage for modern laser cutting machines," says Dan Robinson, laser product group manager for TRUMPF Inc. "Just like modern material handling systems and storage, the new nozzle changer makes it easier to run automated jobs more reliably, and reduces the need for operator intervention."
