Harrison, OH - Cincinnati Inc. has released the CL-400 CO2 laser cutting system that combines the company's performance-driving features from its CL-800 and CL-900 models in an affordable package for shops looking to add laser-cutting capability.
Priced under $500K, the CL-400 uses the water-cooled, high-speed linear motor drives pioneered by Cincinnati, and the same powerful HMI touchscreen control and nesting software found on the company’s other CO2 and fiber laser cutting systems.
Dual 5 x 10 ft. (1.5 x 3 m) pallets and an optional modular material handling system (MMHS) reduce beam-off time and further boost productivity. 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 new laser cutting system features a low-maintenance 4000-W resonator, providing all-around material versatility and cutting precision.
The CL-400’s fourth-generation linear motor drives make fast work of large parts or batch processing of smaller parts, while delivering industry-best dynamic positioning accuracy of ±0.001 inch at high cutting speeds. The machine’s heavy 0.75 inch to 1.5-inch steel plate frame, a hallmark of Cincinnati machines, provides durability, stability and enhanced accuracy. The steel plate is 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.
