LASER CUTTING VIDEOS
Oxygen mild steel cutting – This video shows our 303 CO2 3.2kw Trumpf laser machine processing 4mm S355 mild steel. The sheet shown within the video has been programmed specifically to process the material both as quickly and as economically as possible.These parts, which are part of a large ongoing project for the public transport sector are manufactured by us regularly. High volume output is key to ensuring demands are met, whilst maintaining competitive costs.
3040 Fiber brass – This video shows our largest machine, a Trumpf 304 3.2kw Fiber laser with a 4000 x 2000mm bed size, processing 0.9mm Brass sheets as part of a repeat order for our customer. These parts, cut with Nitrogen will later be formed on our Amada Press brake to fit with its mild steel counterpart to meet our customer requirements.
This video shows our L50 Fiber Trumpf Laser cutting machine utilising the ‘Flyline’ optimisation to achieve a cutting time per part of just 8 seconds, including traversal to the next start point. With each part consisting of 14 separate contours. Each of the 0.5mm galvanised steel parts, cut using compressed air, will be used within fumigation smoke dispersal mechanisms. The high volume which we regularly process these at, accompanied by the output we are able to achieve with cutting edge technologies, ensures we remain competitive in an ever changing industry
Now fully installed and tested, our latest investment, a state of the art Trumpf Trulaser TLC 5030 Fibre five axis machine. With a maximum output of 4 Kw, this new machine increases allows us to improve upon an already high quality finish; on both low to high volume requirements for pressing, spinning’s and hollow sections. Prototype components can easily be secured for processing by utilising a number of options available. whilst remaining compatible with other machines in our Five Axis department .
To enable a scratch free finish as is possible from Laser cutting machines, and whilst simultaneously ensuring quick and safe loading of sheet material onto the machine, we utilise a Suction lifting device. This device, attached to one of two overhead cranes at our second site provides increased functionality when compared to its machine specific counterpart as it can be used within any area of our facility. Thus, removing the costly and time consuming need to manuever material packs around the work space and load onto the machine loading device table. A safe working load of 500kg, coupled with vacuum as opposed to magnetic methods, means that we are able to utilise this aid on all gauges and sheet sizes within our processing range.
Captured here we have our latest machinery investment, installed just 5 months ago. A Trumpf 5030 4Kw fibre five axis laser machine processing, on the additional tube laser attachment, a precut length of free issued stainless steel tube from our customer, who specialises in bespoke automotive solutions. The sectionalising of each of these to a specific length, using Nitrogen as the primary cutting gas takes only a few seconds in conjunction with the programmed chuck rotation.
Shown within this video is our 7040 split cabin five axis laser machine processing pre formed heat shield material to remove all excess material from the customers forming process. The aluminium pressings, at just 0.8mm in thickness have very little weight to them so to ensure no movement during the lasering process we incorporate magnets and other means of securing these in place in conjunction to the purpose made fixture, which we design and manufacture in house to match the contours of the parts.
