Mazak Laser Offers Small Footprint and Price Tag

SCHAUMBURG, IL - Mazak's new STX-44 is a low cost, compact laser cutting system that offers fabricators a choice of three different resonators - 1500, 2500, or 4000 watt.

The wide range of resonators allows fabricators to choose the resonator power most efficient for their business. Fabricators whose business is primarily 0.50" and thinner can take advantage of the low energy and running costs of a 1500-watt system. Those whose business includes thicker gauges may benefit from the 4000-watt system, which cuts mild steel up to 1" thick. The higher wattage system also processes thinner gauges at higher speeds.

With its 4 ft x 4 ft bed, the STX-44 occupies minimal floor space. Its Meehanite frame minimizes the vibrations that occur with high-speed cutting, providing continuous superior accuracy with low maintenance. In addition, a completely enclosed cutting area with an improved dust collector meets FDA Class 1 safety standards and helps provide a safe, clean environment. The system programs easily either on the machine or downloaded to the proven CNC system.

The new STX-44 is part of a broad line of 1500 to 4000 watt CO2 laser cutting machines and automated material handling equipment designed for the efficient production processing of sheetmetal and plate as well as preformed sheetmetal, pipe, and structural. This line is offered in the U.S. by Mazak Nissho Iwai, Schaumburg, Illinois.
