Jumbo tube laser cutting 3D

3D piece cutting by burning material by means of high intensity light generated in a laser generator and where the cutting head is controlled by a 5 axes robot or portal system and the feed and rotation of the workpiece.

The process

A laser beam [1] is generated and then directed to the cutting head [2] using mirrors. Where the beam is focused with a lens [3] and a cutting gas [4], which usually consists of oxygen or nitrogen, is supplied to the cutting head and surround the laser beam during the cutting process. The laser beam is focused [5] on the workpiece [6], which heats up, melts and partially vaporizes the material and a cutting section is created. The molten material formed during the cutting process is blown away by the cutting gas. This protects the lens from splashes from the cutting area and also makes the laser beam free of vapors that could absorb parts of the laser beam. In this method the cutting head is often controlled by a portal system or a robot arm with 5 axes in combination with feeding and rotation of the workpiece. The full freedom of movement is present in the laser head so the workpiece can be held still while the contour is being cut.
