Fibre lasers offer up to 9 kW power

Amada’s latest series of LCG-AJ flat-bed laser cutters is equipped with the company’s own 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 kW oscillators. Amada says it was the first manufacturer of laser machines to develop its own fibre-laser source, with production and testing taking place at the company’s Fujinomiya factory in Japan.
Most models in the LCG-AJ range incorporate an automatic nozzle changer for uninterrupted processing, and all are compatible with Amada’s Digital Support System (ADSS), which not only facilitates the delivery of service support but allows customers to analyse and compare machine performance.
The working range across the LCG-AJ series extends from 3070 x 1550 mm (LCG-3015AJ) to 4070 x 2050 mm (LCG-3015AJ), which is served by positioning speeds of up to 170 m/min – said to be the fastest in its class. According to Amada, using individual high-power diode modules allows for high beam quality, giving the end user higher cutting speeds compared with systems offering a lower beam quality. Furthermore, each machine has a lightweight Y-axis carriage with a low centre of gravity that provides a 30% weight reduction.
Amada’s latest AMNC 3i control ensures simple operation with its smartphone-type 21.5” screen, including on-screen nesting, program scheduling and one-touch set-up features.
LCG-3015AJ machines are fully compatible with Amada’s latest part-picking system, the TK L, which is said to offer high-speed removal and stacking of finished components. All LCG-AJ machines can be equipped with load\unload systems.
