MC Machinery Systems Inc., Wood Dale, Illi., has released the 2D eX laser machine, the fifth generation in a line of powerful 2D lasers. The machine delivers low running costs and eco-friendly features for power and gas consumption, and stable operation for up to 1.4 times greater productivity.
The eco mode cuts running costs by up to 90 percent during standby. Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by around 30% compared to competitor machines. The machine’s new compact design provides a small footprint without reducing table size. Standard on the eX is its magnetic head, which protects from catastrophic crashes and allows for easy recovery.
A built-in control panel, a window into the workpiece area, and a barcode reader all make for easy operation. Other features include high-speed lens movement; a large work area; simple nesting with component thumbnails displayed on the screen; an email notification system; and a faster processing head.
Mitsubishi’s patented three-axis, cross-flow resonator design delivers a high cutting power per watt. The simplified resonator design eliminates the need for expensive quartz tubes and turbine blower systems, optimizes cutting power, and reportedly requires 2 to 5 times less maintenance than other laser equipment on the market.
