Original Press Release:
Enhanced Rotary Axis Improves Tube Cutting Operations For Strippit/LVD Impuls 4030 Laser System
Akron, New York-Strippit/LVD introduces a new rotary axis design for its Impuls 4030 laser cutting system. The enhanced rotary axis provides controlled manual or automatic support to improve tube-cutting operations.
New support mechanisms and upgraded software allow users to manually or automatically position the support device during the cutting process. When processing long tubes, both automated and manual support can be employed.
The manual support mechanism is a simple design that provides easy adjustment. A number of "fingers" are used to securely position the tube in the flange. This design provides maximum flexibility and allows one set of flanges to be used for different tubes within a certain size range.
The automatic support mechanism uses a retractable arm to engage the tube support and move the device into the desired position. The tube support is capable of holding round and shaped tubes. The design provides cutting flexibility and avoids manual intervention in the cutting process. Backlash between the tube and the support is greatly reduced, providing better part accuracy and less operating noise.
Strippit/LVD is a leading manufacturer of metalforming equipment, including laser cutting machines, CNC turret punch presses, flexible fabricating systems, press brakes, shears, and programming software.
