Laser Cutting Machines

Below you will find the technical overview to each of our laser cutting machine and associated components.

Laser #12 - Our latest addition is the Trumpf Trulaser 5030Fiber all flying optic machine with Siemens touch screen controller with direct network and internet connection, 6kw Solid State Disk laser within a fibre optic beam delivery system. The laser was delivered with 2 outputs, both with 100 and 400 micron coaxial fibres. The output to the 5030Fiber uses the 100 micron for cutting thin material and the 400 micron fibre for cutting the thick materials, typically 8mm and above. The second output on the laser has a twin fibre for the 5 axis machine, where the 100 micron fibre is used for cutting and the 400 micron is used for welding.

Maximum sheet size 3 x 1.5 metre, twin change tables, 235m/min rapid speed. Single cutting head technology with 200mm focal length focusing optics, AutoLas Plus focusing, automatic nozzle tip cleaning and changing unit and BrightLine for cutting thicker materials, Copper and Brass cutting package and finally CoolLine which uses water injection on thick mild steel to cool the material during the cutting process.

Our new 5030Fiber has a solid state laser where the TruDisk disk laser combines the advantages of a solid-state laser with those of a diode laser. The diode laser, as the pump source, provides the excitation energy and ensures high efficiency. The disk, as a solid-state laser, ensures high beam quality.

This all-new machine from Trumpf uses a solid state laser with a single fibre optic beam delivery. This simplifies the machine compared to a CO2 laser, which requires mirrors to condition and guide the beam to the cutting head. The X-axis is a double helical rack and pinion drive and both the Y and Z-axes are linear drives. Although the drives are exceptionally fast the accuracy of the drives has not been compromised, with cut parts consistently having accuracies in the order of ±30 microns.

Connected to the Liftmaster Compact the 5030Fiber can be loaded and unloaded as part of a sheet production plan either programmed off-line or on the machine. Vacuum suckers can lift a single sheet 3x1.5 metres x (maximum) 25mm thick steel plate, remove the cut skeleton and parts using the tines on the unloading station and then brush the table before loading the new sheet on the change table. Thin sheets are checked to prevent multiple sheet loading.

Laser #11 - Trumpf TruLaser Cell 3000. The first customer installation of this prestigious Trumpf machine in the UK with 5 axis welding head and 5 axis cutting head. Beam delivery is through a 2 in 1 fiber optic developed for solid-state lasers enabling the same optical cable to be used for both welding and cutting.

A second workstation for our 5030fiber Disk Laser equipped with horizontal and vertical axes rotary chuck, cutting or welding head with +/- 135 degree rotation and fast vibration free X, Y & Z axes. Highly reflective materials can be cut or welded with the 3kW Disk laser. Productive pallet changer, small HAZ when welding, spot & seam welding and rapid access door mechanisms.

Laser #10 - Trumpf TruMark Station 1000, purchased in 3rd Quarter 2013 this new machine has a 12 watt fibre laser to laser mark using annealing, marking or engraving methods of operation. Fitted with TruMark 3130 Laser a flexible marking laser for applications with minimal heat input and tasks with higher pulse repetition frequencies. For a wide range of different marking techniques, materials and marking content. The enclosure can accommodate a part size of approximately 250 x 150mm with a marking area of 110x110mm, also fitted with a rotary axis for marking cylindrical components.

Power to the machine is from 13 amp single phase 3-pin supply and without the need to align the laser after transportation, Cirrus Laser will soon be able to offer a mobile service to customer's at their premises rather than sending parts to our factory for marking.

Laser #9 - Trumpf Trulaser 3030(L20), installed in 2nd Quarter 2012 with an operating lease arranged through Trumpf and ING, all flying optic machine with Siemens touch screen controller with direct network connection, 3.2kw RF-excited Fast Axial flow CO2 laser.

Maximum sheet size 3 x 1.5 metre, twin change tables, 140m/min rapid speed within a totally enclosed beam delivery system. 250mm and 130mm focal length lens nozzle systems using AutoLas Plus focusing. Fitted with a vacuum activated crane, with a lifting capacity of 300kg, the crane allows safe loading of sheet material to the machine. The Trumpf 3030 is capable of piece part cut times quicker than conventional punch machines and without the need for tooling; complex shapes can be easily cut.

Recent upgrades to the 3030 range of Trumpf machines includes touch screen CNC, Y&Z axes linear drives, reduced power consumption, turbine slow-down during idle time, automatic nozzle cleaning and height regulation calibration, larger parts conveyor, faster table changing cycle, improved operator access and faster start-up times for the laser.
