Mazak displayed trio of latest laser-cutting developments at Blechexpo 2019

Yamazaki Mazak displayed a combination of its latest state-of-the-art laser processing machines and automation capabilities at the Blechexpo trade fair, on the 5th - 8th November at the Landesmesse, Stuttgart.

Mazak is a long-term exhibitor at Blechexpo, which is dedicated to sheet metal processing and joining technology. Mazak was exhibiting three laser processing machines at the event, including the OPTIPLEX 3015 DDL 6.0 kW (Direct Diode Laser): a high-speed and high-accuracy machine that offers laser users a step-change in cutting performance.

Equipped with a powerful 6.0kW Direct Diode Laser resonator, the OPTIPLEX 3015 DDL 6.0 kW is ideal for cutting medium and thick sheet metal. The resonator, the most advanced of its kind, enables the fast cutting of stainless steel and aluminium.

Most importantly, the Direct Diode Laser machine delivers stable cutting for both thin and thick material due to the high-quality beam mode, along with Intelligent Monitoring Functions (IMF) and Intelligent Setup functions (ISF) – all of which combine to produce unsurpassed productivity.

In addition, the Direct Diode Laser delivers the highest levels of cutting quality, particularly with thick mild steel, utilising appropriate beam shape to deliver a smooth cut edge. The DDL is equipped with a Multi-Control Torch and new MAZATROL PreviewG.

The Mazak stand was also featuring the new OPTIPLEX NEXUS FIBER 6.0 kW machine, featuring a  CST automation system. The system consists of a single tower mounted alongside the laser bench, which contains the raw material drawers and finished product. The automation uses suction cups and forks to load and unload workpieces and can be equipped with up to eight different drawers, with a maximum load capacity of 3,000 kg per drawer.

The new OPTIPLEX NEXUS FIBER 6.0 kW offers high productivity with stainless steel and aluminium. Nitrogen cutting is also possible with thicker mild steel. Thanks to the new Mazatrol PreviewG feature, Camera Remote Nesting, it is possible to detect free space left on sheet metal and re-start the cutting process to allow extra parts to be cut.

The machine is equipped with a number of intelligent features including Beam Diameter Control, which provides stable cutting from thin to thick material, optimised cutting Intelligent Monitoring Functions and reduced set-up times with Intelligent Setup Functions.

The third laser processing machine on display at Blechexpo will be a variant of Mazak’s OPTIPLEX 3015 FIBER III range complete with powerful 10.0k W generator. Ideally suited for fabrication job shops and production environments, the machine uses a 2D flying optics laser-cutting system with an innovative control and drive package to cut mild steel up to 25 mm in thickness, and stainless steel and aluminium up to 35 mm in thickness.

Positioning accuracy is maintained to within ±0.05mm / 500mm in the X- and Y-axes and to within ±0.01 mm / 100mm in the Z-axis; while high productivity is achieved thanks to rapid traverse rates of 120m / min in the X- and Y-axes.

The OPTIPLEX 3015 FIBER III 10.0k W is controlled by Mazak’s Mazatrol PreviewG control, which offers a state-of-the-art CPU for unsurpassed operating speed, high-response and high-speed machine motion. Operation is simplified via the easy integration of Intelligent Setup, Monitoring and Cutting Functions; while sensors in the Multi-Control Torch monitor piercing and cutting operations to improve throughput and overall part quality.

Gaetano Lo Guzzo, Director Laser Business Europe at Yamazaki Mazak, commented: “Blechexpo is fast becoming one of the standout events in the laser-cutting calendar, and it is a major platform for Mazak to exhibit its sheet metal cutting solutions to a captive and burgeoning European market.

“Automation is continuing to be one of the major driving forces, as users are embracing the tangible productivity benefits it can derive. We were excited to be displaying one of our most effective turnkey solutions at Blechexpo 2019, along with three of the latest developments from our highly popular OPTIPLEX, NEXUS and DDL ranges.”
