Mazak develops 2D laser machine for sheet metal cutting

Yamazaki Mazak has completed the development of a new 2D laser machine for top-notch sheet metal cutting operations. The brand-new Cutting Head MCT3 and the innovative MAZATROL SmoothLX CNC Control system are just a few of the technical standouts installed on the OPTIPLEX 3015 NEO.

The newly-designed Cutting Head MCT3 boasts multiple intelligent functions to streamline the operator’s job even more: Auto Nozzle Changing to optimise laser cutting and reduce assist gas consumption, Auto Focus distance adjustment for faster cutting speeds, and Auto Calibration of the nozzle-workpiece distance drastically improve productivity.

Automating the overall setup time can lead to 95% quicker preparations compared to standard laser machines. Moreover, Intelligent Cutting functions such as Flash Cutting and Fine Power Ramping can enhance the overall process even more.

The new MAZATROL SmoothLX’s large 21.5″ screen displays parts nesting at a glance, and the touch panel provides easy access to necessary information such as cut conditions or nozzle settings. Nest Programming, Cut Monitoring, Production Scheduling, and Machine Maintenance are just some of the many functions available to the operator. Also, the optional dual monitor allows multiple applications to run simultaneously.
