Three-dimensional fiber-laser processing machine
In December 2017, Japan’s Komatsu Industries launched new three-dimensional fiber-laser processing machines, called the “TLH510-2” and “TLH408-2”. Based on the original product which was released in 2010, the 2017 version was completely remodelled to improve productivity and focus on ease of use.
The in-house fiber laser resonator provides outputs of 2 kW and 3 kW. The controller is equipped with its original “C4” controller. The “S-curve type acceleration/deceleration control” enables smooth acceleration, and suppresses minute vibrations generated at the time of shaft operation. The result is a reduction in machining time by 12% while maintaining the trajectory accuracy.
In addition, the power control function, which changes the output in proportion to the torch tip speed, improved the function of melting and burning of corners. Furthermore, vibration is suppressed by an ideal operation command adapted to actual operation.
“Gap control” for the X, Y, and Z axes was adopted, and the fast-forward and approach times were reduced by 20%.
The machine uses the machine operation management system “KOMTRAX”, as a standard system to provide users with information on operating conditions, performance management for each product item, daily report preparation, preventive maintenance, and other information.
In addition to Japan, the system can also be used in the United States, China, Thailand, and other regions.
