The INspire line of laser cutting machines from Eagle Laser (Walcz, Poland) feature laser sources from 1 kW to 20 kW, with head travel at a maximum of 6g. The lasers feature linear motors on all axes, and carbon fiber traverse for strength and weight savings.
The head can move at speeds of 350 m/min. while positioning, and 150 m/min. while cutting. The eVa cutting head features automatic centering of the beam, and laser beam control without moving parts in the head. Only three wearing parts are required in the cutting head. The INspire series also features automatic focus, as well as a motorized zoom which changes the beam diameter at the workpieces, adapting the spot to the material thickness and type. It can also change the beam automatically from Gaussian mode to ring mode.
Among its other automated features is CutEye, a rapid edge finder that locates the sheet, adjusts the cutting program to match the sheet location, and starts cutting. A sheet locating time of five seconds is normal for small to medium-sized sheets, with slightly more for bigger sheets. The cutting head remains retracted during the edge finding cycle, allowing the machine to move at ultra-fast speed and avoiding the risk of collision
Absolute linear encoders keep up with the laser. Optical “Resolute” linear encoders from Renishaw transmit continuous feedback of the exact position of the machine to the controller, even at maximum speed and with an accuracy of 1 nanometer.
The laser cuts a wide variety of materials, and has maximum thicknesses for mild steel of between 10 mm (for the 1 kW model) to 60 mm (for the 20 kW model).
