Elgin, Il - Mazak Optonics Corp. has released a new Tube Gear 2D laser-cutting machine with high processing speeds for tubes and pipes. The Tube Gear’s high-speed capabilities for thin-walled applications offer increased efficiency and a significant reduction in cost per part compared to similar tube and pipe cutting systems.

Available with a 2.5 kW or 4 kW resonator, the Tube Gear can process round and rectangular tube and pipe with diameters of up to 6 inches. It has a standard 5-in. Servo Focus torch and can make cuts at a rapid traverse rate of up to 6,299 IPM.

The Tube Gear is equipped with a triple chuck system which minimizes warp and material vibration, allowing for high-accuracy and high-speed processing of material up to 21.3 ft long. It also includes a bundle material load/unload system which allows for increased throughput for large lot sizes up to 4.2 tons while still comprising a smaller footprint than similar machines.

Other standard features of the Tube Gear include an automated lens focal distance measurement system, automated calibration function and a nozzle cleaning system. There is also an optional automated nozzle change system to significantly reduce machine set-up times.
