A laser beam is used to cut various types of tubing, angle iron, and I-beams during the 3D laser cutting process. You can use this method to cut holes of any shape, make beveled edges on the walls of tubing, create “fish mouth” ends on round tubing, and cut other things with high precision. Laser cutting is made possible by six axes, one of which has a rotary tube chuck.
These axes can be used to cut structural shapes, tubes, formed parts, bevel-cut flat parts, and other high-value laser cut parts. Cutting can be done on flat, slanted, or curved surfaces in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional laser cutting jobs.
In comparison, a 3D design certainly appears more innovative and futuristic, whereas a 2D laser cutting method is less expensive. An X, Y, and Z axis are used in the 3-axis system, while an A and B axis are added to the 5-axis system.
Engineers, designers, and artists are the primary users of a laser cutter, a tool for making prototypes and manufacturing flat materials. Patterns and geometries specified by designers are cut out of materials by laser cutters using a thin, focused laser beam.
A laser cutter creates a cut edge by vaporizing materials with a high-energy laser. Through an optical arrangement, the laser is focused on the material, and a computer system (CNC) converts the G-codes to direct the laser head to follow the cut pattern.
The Global 3D Laser Cutting Machine market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A new 3D fiber laser cutting machine is introduced by Mazak. The world’s leading machine tool manufacturer Yamazaki Mazak has introduced the “FG-400 NEO,” a 3D fiber laser cutting machine for steel products.
An energy-efficient fiber laser oscillator that offers high productivity and energy conversion efficiency is included in the FG-400 NEO. Additionally, this brand-new product is capable of cutting materials with high reflectivity, such as copper, brass, and aluminum.
Additionally, the FG-400 NEO has a function that lets users freely adjust the laser beam’s diameter and shape, making it possible to cut anything from thin sheets to thick plates with a single machine.
The oscillator has a maximum output of 4 kW, and the rapid feeding speed is 60 meters per minute on the X axis, 36 meters per minute on the Y axis, and 30 meters per minute on the Z axis. Steel processing for construction materials and agricultural machinery are the intended markets. The retail price, which does not include tax, starts at 193.5 million yen. The goal for annual sales is 36 units.
