Mazak Optonics Corp., Elgin, IL, will introduce the new SuperTurbo-X Mark III RTC 2D laser cutting system that provides flexibility for a large range of applications at an upcoming show in September. The STX Mark III RTC cuts thin to thick sheets, cubic components, taps and even chamfers, enabling you to cut a tremendous range of laser cut parts.
A rotary table is standard equipment for cutting round pipe up to a maximum diameter of 14.76 inches, and square tubes up to 6 inches. The large 16.14 inches range of Z travel enables you to laser cut preformed parts and other 3-dimensional shapes requiring greater cut height. The STX Mark III RTC is available in 2,500 (.87 inch MS) or 4,000 (1 inch MS) watt configurations and accepts up to a 5 feet x 10 feet sheet of flat material. It can be delivered with a large range of automated material handling systems including load/unload cells and flexible manufacturing systems.
The STX Mark III RTC utilizes many leading edge features developed for Mazak’s Hyper Series machines. They include intelligent setup functions for automated nozzle spatter removal, a three-station nozzle changer, and focal point measurement and adjustment capability. These features are components of Mazak’s Opti-Pod, which helps to minimize system setup time and improve extended unattended operation while maintaining optimized machining conditions.
The Mark III also incorporates a new Servo Focus Torch. This servo driven system significantly reduces piercing time and increases productivity. Additional new technology includes a high accuracy auto centering lens and nozzle design that further reduces setup and increases productivity as well as pierce, plasma and burn sensing to assure consistent performance over a wide range of materials.
