LVD’s (Akron, NY) Electra FL is its top-of-the-line system, offering high-speed processing and flexibility. It is designed to cut as fast as the thermal process allows without dynamic compromise and is able to process a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals including copper and brass.
The system features an IPG fiber laser source of 6, 8, or 10 kW. The machine utilizes an optical design featuring zoom focus, allowing adjustment of the focal diameter without operator intervention. The cutting head can pierce 0.79-inch (20 mm) material in two seconds.
The machine gantry features a linear drive motion to ensure high dynamics and 2G acceleration while cutting. The integrated spindle-driven shuttle tables ensure smooth movement and uninterrupted part processing, and shuttle table changeover is completed in 30 seconds.
LVD additionally offers a number of options for modular automation. Electra’s optional infra-red camera referencing system ensures fast and accurate sheet referencing. The camera provides automatic and non-contact datum calculation and sheet referencing from pre-punched holes or two adjacent plate edges.
The optional nozzle changer includes storage for 10 nozzles, nozzle cleaning after a number of piercings, automatic calibration of the capacitive height sensing, and camera monitoring of the size, position, and quality of the nozzle.
The compact tower (CT-L) is a tower for loading, unloading, and storage of raw materials and finished parts. It is offered in three configurations of 4, 6, or 10 pallets. The CT-L handles 120 inch x 60 inch (3050 mm x 1525 mm) sheets up to 1 inch (25 mm) in thickness and has a pallet storage capacity of 6,000 pounds (3,000 kg).
FA-L is another option for automatic loading and unloading, designed for flexibility and speed. It can unload a processed sheet and load the next sheet onto the table in 40 seconds. The FA-L handles 120 x 60 inches (3050 x 1525 mm) sheets and material thickness up to ¾ inches (20 mm) with a pallet storage capacity of 6,000 lbs (3000 kg).
