New cost-efficient laser cutting machine

LVD is introducing Puma, a new cost-efficient fibre laser cutting machine designed to provide high-technology features and performance at a lower total cost of ownership. Offered with a 3, 6 or 12 kW laser in 3050 x 1525, 4065 x 2035 and 6160 x 2035 mm formats, LVD says that its automation-ready Puma provides the agility to handle a diversity of cutting applications.

LVD’s latest laser cutting machine addresses growing demand for versatile laser cutting equipment built to maximise the value of a user’s investment and lower cost per part. Puma operates as economically as possible with high-end features that optimise cutting performance and robust construction to ensure reliable operation. The welded steel, mono-frame construction provides stability to achieve quality cutting at high feed rates.

Notably, the Puma cutting head incorporates crash protection, motorised focus position adjustment and capacitive height sensing, as well as automated functions for sheet referencing, cutting gas selection, pressure control and nozzle cleaning. High machine dynamics enables productive cutting across a wide range of material types and thicknesses.

Puma’s shuttle table system allows one table to be loaded or unloaded while cutting on the other, keeping throughput at its peak. Table changeover takes just 35 seconds.

To maximise laser cutting output and processing efficiency, Puma can be equipped or retrofitted with any MOVit modular automation system, including: the Compact Tower (CT-L) for loading, unloading and material/parts storage; the Flexible Automation (FA-L) advanced load/unload system; the Tower Automation System (TAS) for single or double-tower storage; or the Warehouse Automation System (WAS), a customisable storage tower system.
