New High-Speed Laser Controls from FANUC
April 01, 2011
FANUC Factory Automation America (FANUC FA America) introduces the Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B high-speed laser controls capable of supporting advanced levels of high speed laser processing. They have the capacity to deliver seamless choreography between axes motion and power modulation, even in cases of extremely high speeds when processing thin gage materials. Internal laser power stabilizing characteristics deliver edge conditions on thicker materials that redefine the norm of RZ and RA (measured length of surface roughness). Truly unique in laser processing, smooth edge cross sections with superior edge finishes quantify smoothness rather than surface roughness.
Reliable and versatile, the sophistication of the new FANUC laser controls lends innovative excellence and impressive processing characteristics to the base units. The new Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B CNCs provide exceptional performance, superior technology, and impressive gains in processing speeds and power modulation, which translates into shorter cycle times and increased edge quality. Relative to other CNCs in its class this control has update rates of 125 microseconds, arguably 40 times faster than the rate at which a single neuron can fire within the human brain. These technological features translate to superior cut quality and accuracy; which translates into premium quality parts and a realized competitive distinction.
FANUC Corporation is the most diversified manufacturer of factory automation, robots, and robomachines in the world. Since its inception in 1956 it has contributed to the automation of machine tools as a pioneer in the development of computer numerical control equipment. Go online to [www.fanucfa.com].
