LVD Strippit, Akron, N.Y., has introduced the Touch-L touch screen graphical user interface that is now featured on select models of the company's CO2 laser cutting systems.
Touch-L brings the ease of LVD Strippit’s Intelli-Touch user interface technology to laser processing so that both routine and complex operations can be quickly and efficiently accomplished with minimal operator input.
Touch-L simplifies the laser cutting process by using intuitive graphical icons and visual indicators to display and control functions such as lens and nozzle selection, download of an NC file to the machine memory, quick file searching and file editing, preview of the part/nesting, and real time reproduction of the cutting path.
After selection of the parts, Touch-L performs automatic nesting and job generation and production can begin. In an easy and intuitive way, the operator can change cutting qualities, the position and type of lead-in, and add or relocate micro joints for all online generated jobs. Touch-L supports multiple extensions, including DXF/NC, and supports USB memory and network drives.
Touch-L is also compatible with LVD Strippit’s new CADMAN-OEE process management software, which captures and analyzes key machine performance indicators so that users can optimize the overall efficiency of their equipment.
