60” x 120” workpiece capacity complements state-of-the-industry laser and machine control technology

Han-Kwang USA announces immediate availability of its new Series PL, specifically Model PL 3015, a long bed, 2D flying optic laser system capable of handling 60” wide x 120” long workpieces.  With a long bed gantry arrangement, less motion is required on the machine, providing greater working stability and reduced maintenance requirements.

Model PL 3015 features rapid single axis speed of 4724 ipm, simultaneous X-Y axis speed of 7900 ipm and maximum cutting speed of 1181 ipm, all with positioning accuracies better than +/- 0.004” per 118” of travel and repeatability to 0.001”.  A dual shuttle pallet system is onboard to maintain optimum productivity in processing.

This Han-Kwang laser system features a powerful Panasonic CO2 laser resonator in 2, 2.5, 4 and 6 KW versions, as well as the builder’s patented beam radius control, which optimizes the beam diameter for various material substrates and thickness variations, resulting in improved part quality.  Additionally, the constant beam delivery system on the Han-Kwang laser provides better consistency in the beam quality at the focal point.  These features and benefits to the user are delivered in the S5 high-speed cutting head found on the machine.  The advanced Han-Kwang sensing board and head design improve cutting speed for all sheet metals, according to the manufacturer.

A plasma monitoring unit constantly tracks cut errors to further reduce out-of-tolerance conditions in the cutting cycle, while a built-in lens crack sensor monitors the state of lens contamination, with instant alerts through the onboard Siemens CNC to provide operators and maintenance personnel useful and immediate alarm notifications.

All machine mechanical movements and laser cutting operations are controlled by the powerful Siemens SINUMERIK 840D CNC.  With its open architecture, 10GM hard drive and plain language commands, the CNC enables faster start-up and reduced time to first part for the programmers and operators alike.  Further, a remote service support feature allows online communication to the CNC manufacturer for troubleshooting assistance.  

An optional rotary axis is available for tube cutting up to 12” OD with this Han-Kwang laser system.  Fully automated materials handling systems, pallet towers and other equipment for production improvement are also offered by the company.
