The CL-400's water-cooled, high-speed linear motor drives make fast work of large parts or batch processing of smaller parts, while delivering positioning accuracy of plus/minus 0.001 inch at high cutting speeds. Designed for high throughput and all-around material versatility, the CL-400 delivers fast positioning speeds of 12,000 ipm and up to 1-inch processing range on mild steel.
The machine's heavy 0.75 to 1.5 inch steel plate frame provides durability, stability and enhanced accuracy. The steel plate is laser cut, formed, welded, stress relieved, and precision-machined to make an extremely rigid base for all the laser's components. The separate load frame is made of 1.5 inch plate steel to withstand repetitive loading and unloading without affecting the cutting process.
The unit's low-maintenance 4000 W resonator also has a low-speed, oil-free turbine designed specifically for laser use and a gas filtration module that continuously purifies the gases flowing through the resonator.
"We've selected a highly reliable, clean running CO2 resonator for the new system," said Todd Kirchoff, product manager.
The resonator has a low-speed, oil-free turbine designed specifically for laser use and a gas filtration module that continuously purifies the gases flowing through the resonator. The effectiveness of the filtration allows the laser to produce good power stability while using simple, industrial grade, non-specialized laser gases.
