Very short production times are the result of high travel speed, axis acceleration and high laser performance with up to 6 kW in cutting, as well as cutting speeds of as much as 40 m/min. Non productive time is reduced by FastLine Cell functions and quick loading and unloading. Process consistency is increased with the function ObserveLine which checks, with minimal cycle time impact, if every slug has been removed. In addition, maintenance and operating costs are further reduced by central lubrication, which makes lubrication cycles unnecessary, for example.
The high processing quality is based on a very exact beam position and a laser focus that is constant in the entire working range. In addition to the known cutting technology tables, there are predefined and saved parameter sets for laser welding: WeldLine. This is a simple introduction to laser welding, high production quality through tested welding parameters and minimal prove out for new workpieces.
Examples of more ergonomic operation units are the control console that can be moved along the whole length of the machine or the easy and intuitively-managed 6D mouse for teaching. The new technology data concept(advanced laser power control) for laser cutting reduces programming time considerably you obtain the first finished part more quickly with short cutting time. The configurable interface even makes it simple to control complex equipment with controlled compressed air or vacuum.
A magnetic coupling function along all axes, with three-point support bearing, reduces machine damage in the event of a collision and keeps machine downtime to a minimum. The optics identification ensures that the correct optic is attached to the machine. This eliminates errors that could result in a collision. Siemens integrated safety conveniently safeguards the work area, especially during teaching.
