Fiber laser with unique cutting capabilities
The AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ is the first fiber laser system ever to permit the burr-free, smooth cutting of stainless steel and aluminum. The machine, which will be presented exclusively at EuroBLECH, also excels through its high speed and low operating costs.
AMADA is constantly further developing its products and technologies and continuously setting new standards in the world of sheet metal processing with its pioneering innovations. The most recent highlight produced by this culture of innovation is the VENTIS-3015AJ fiber laser cutting system. “The VENTIS is opening up a whole new dimension in fiber laser cutting because, with it, it is now possible for the first time to cut aluminum and stainless steel completely without burr and with very low surface roughness,” explains Axel Willuhn, Product Manager for Punching and Laser Technology. This makes the new AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ particularly interesting for customers who have previously decided not to use fiber lasers to cut aluminum and stainless steel out of quality reasons.
Outstanding beam quality
One of the VENTIS’s many innovations for which patent applications have already been lodged are the special optics used in the cutting head. Unique in the world of laser cutting technology VENTIS allows the laser beam to move from side to side in different trajectories in a matter of milliseconds. This cutting mode makes it possible to work with outstanding beam quality at all times. Thus, the laser in the AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ achieves a sensational BPP value (Beam Parameter Product) of 0.9 mm x mrad. This beam quality is of vital importance in ensuring high-quality cuts and the burr-free, smooth cutting of stainless steel and aluminum. If necessary, the kerf width can be increased, for example to simplify the removal of the parts. The AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ also excels thanks to its exceptional speed. As a result, this 4 kW system can easily rival machines in the 6 kW or even higher classes. The high cutting speed, the reduced power consumption and other process parameters mean that the costs of operating the VENTIS are considerably lower than for a system with a higher output level.
