AltaMAR Laser and Control Introduces the LT1200 and LT2400 Laser Tube Cutting Systems
Fridley, MN July 2, 2002 - Today AltaMAR Laser and Control introduces its LT1200 and LT2400 Laser Tube Cutting Systems.
AltaMAR Laser and Control developed an expertise in laser tube cutting in their job shop and have now brought that expertise to the development of laser cutting equipment. AltaMAR, like many small to medium sized shops, could not find an affordable laser tube cutting system, so they decided to develop one themselves. "These laser cutting systems are positioned as 'value' laser systems" states Daniel Martin, AltaMAR President. "There is a need in the market for low cost laser tube cutting systems like ours. These systems provide good functionality and reliability but don't have all the bells and whistles that come with the higher end systems."
Available with PRC lasers to 3000 watts, the LT1200 or LT2400 Laser Tube Cutting Systems are capable of cutting mild steel, stainless, or aluminum of various sizes and wall thicknesses. Round, rectangular, or ob-round tubes can be processed. The LT1200 accommodates raw tubes to 12 feet, and the LT2400 accepts tubes to 24 feet. A tube length measurement system allows random tube lengths to be used. Optional automatic in-feed and out-feed systems allow for unattended operation.
Built with standard components, the LT1200 and LT2400 are simple to operate and easy to maintain. The controller is PC based with a touch-screen user interface. A simple programming tool is provided to generate programs for profiled ends and common internal features. Programming is with standard G and M codes.
