New fibre laser cutting machineA Banbury-based LVD Pullmax Ltd (www.lvdgroup.com) has launched its Electra FL 3015 8kW fibre laser cutting machine.

Designed to cut a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials as fast as the thermal process allows “without dynamic compromise”, the Electra 8kW can maintain 2g acceleration.

The Electra FL also features a new cutting head, a new ‘smooth lead-in’ feature, an advanced drive system and the latest generation of LVD’s Touch-L control.

Among the capabilities of the new cutting head are automated adjustment of focus position and focus diameter. This can improve piercing times, cutting speeds and cut performance in all material types and thicknesses, according to LVD.

It can also increase throughput and reduce the need for operator intervention.

The ability to change the focal point allows Electra to pierce 20mm material in just 2sec.

The ‘smooth lead-in’ feature ensures a fast (but stable) lead-in after piercing thicker material (greater than 6mm) with nitrogen. According to LVD, this capability results in an average 15% reduction in part-cutting times.

Two levels of automation are available: the FA-L load/unload system or CT-L compact tower. The latter offers loading, unloading and storage of raw materials and finished parts.

Be seen in all the right places!
