Mitsubishi Laser's New LVPLUSII Delivers Superior Accuracy and Maximum Productivity

March 3, 2008

Wood Dale, IL - Mitsubishi Laser introduces the next generation of its best-selling, most popular laser ever, the LVPLUS. The new LVPLUSII combines several new performance-enhancing features with the productivity features that made the original machine such a success. Mitsubishi's flexible automation is versatile and expandable, with several highly productive options to maximize throughput based on consumer needs.

The machine's new 40CF-R resonator technology, built from the success of Mitsubishi's CFX-series resonator, reduces rise time/fall time of square wave pulse. This provides a more consistent beam power during the cutting process and delivering a more brilliant and consistent edge quality. Additionally, the uniform low current discharge provides low power stability for improved micro machining and etching.

The LVPLUSII delivers new Brilliantcut technology, which can produce a cutting surface roughness equivalent to the typical machined finish. Brilliantcut provides optimal processing conditions, reduced taper, and reduced discoloring on the heat-affected zone.

The new Jet Pierce technology decreases part time by allowing material to be pierced faster and more aggressively during small hole processing. Improved height sensor hardware gives the LVPLUSII twice the tracing ability of the original machine.

The LVPLUSII is constructed in a heavy-duty, one-piece machine design. A solid Dianite casting delivers ultimate stability with machine tool, resonator and power supply incorporated onto a single platform.

Mitsubishi's Diamond-Path Technology maintains consistent beam quality by using a constant beam length system. It provides cutting stability at speeds up to 1150 inches per minute across all processing areas.

The advanced high-speed processing head on the LVPLUSII has multiple features enabling high-speed cutting on a broad range of materials for maximum productivity. Its exclusive design offers versatility and easy-to-use features.

MELS EYE, the optional Intelligent Process Monitoring System has Auto Focusing and other detection features to ensure superior cut quality. Burn Detection tracks each cut and when no longer sustained, LVPLUSII automatically restarts. Pierce Detection increases productivity by eliminating the buffer in conventional oxygen piercing. Plasma Detection minimizes scrap in high production runs by tracking plasma and adjusting the machine's speed as necessary.

LVPLUSII is completely modular, allowing for 24/7 unattended processing. Auto-Flex MSCIII Advanced Automation provides selective expansion options of multiple-shelf towers, material carts, product carts, break-in station and multiple lasers.
