Precision and dynamics in a new dimension
The right choice for the highest precision requirements for the production of laser cutting parts. This machine combines state-of-the-art technologies into a unit with previously unknown possibilities for laser cutting.
Sample service: Samples are always more expressive than any technical machine data, for in the end precision and productivity are what counts.
Fibre lasers achieve a high level of absorption in metallic materials, they have an electrical-optical efficiency of approx. 30 % and offer outstanding beam quality. These characteristics allow cutting of metal alloys from steel, aluminium and copper.
The granite bodies of the longitudinal axes rest on a steel construction which was annealed to eliminate stresses. The large mass of the granite axes and the specific properties of the granite, such as long-term stability, vibration damping and low temperature expansion, form a solid and highly precise basis for the dynamically moving parts of the machine.
Achieving the shortest possible production time for the manufacturing of complex, delicate parts requires the highest level of dynamics which is achieved through a reduction of the moved masses. On the STIEFELMAYER effective S, this was implemented by using lightweight carbon constructions for the moving Y-axis and its attachment parts.
No other drive technology than linear motors is better suited for achieving the required dynamics and precision. It generates a direct, straight movement, allowing vibration-free transmission of forces into the moving parts of the machine. This enables the highest level of path accuracy with the highest level of dynamics. In addition to this, linear motors are mostly free from wear.
