Laser system cuts tube, structural, sheet, plate
Mazak’s Space Gear-U 44 performs high-speed, 2-D processing
of sheet metal and
plate; 3-D cutting of preformed parts; and 3-D
rotary cutting of tube,
pipe, and structural.
In rotary mode, the machine cuts rectangular, round, and
triangular pipe, as well as C-, H-, I-, and L-beams within a 6 in.
dia. The 5-axis torch and simultaneously controlled chuck let
the machine fabricate angle cuts, weld-prep bevels, and contours in one operation. The 64-bit control incorporates illustrated fill-in-the-blank screens for quick programming.
With its multiaxis torch, the unit also laser-cuts stamped,
hydroformed, and spun preformed parts, as well as high-speed, 2-D cuts and bevels in flat material.

Mobile press brake generates
88-ton press capacity in less
than 10 sq. ft.
Bystronic Inc. has announced the release
of the Xpert 80 mobile
Over a bending
length of about 5 ft.,
The machine delivers bending speeds
up to 1 IPS. This enables users to bend
three times as many parts with the compact machine compared to a slower,
large press brake, the company states.
According to the company, the ByMo-tion drive control helps ensure the upper beam and backgauges are accelerated with high precision.
Plasma beveling system uses
ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has
introduced the DMX automated plasma
beveler, a compact system that cuts a
full range of weld preparations, including V, Y, X, and K bevels, with cut angles
up to 45 degrees on materials nearly 2
The system is complemented by the
release of the company’s new Smart-Bevel™ Technology for programming
and accurate bevel cutting with minimal operator intervention.
Direct-drive motors provide 5-axis
motion to reduce complexity, eliminate
the need for breakaway crash protection, and deliver accurate positioning.
The “compliant motion” lets the beveler
absorb and detect a torch crash without
any added components, as well as automatically reset after a collision without the operator touching the torch or
climbing on the cutting table to do so.
