Fibermak series, Ermaksan

Fibermak Momentum Gen-3 - New Generation Fiber Laser

The Fibermak, built with long-life, precision components and with its rigid construction is able to work continuously and precisely in the most severe conditions.

What is Laser?

Laser is the abbreviation of “Light Amplification of Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The Foundation of the Laser depends on the photons, which are created by electron transfers between different energy levelled particles.

Internal structure of laser unit

The ytterbium laser light is created inside the laser unit. Laser light created at the resonator is transferred to the cutting head by fiber-optic cable without loss of power or quality. In this way laser light with a high beam quality appropriate for metal cutting is provided.

 

Sheet metal working by fiber laser

Sheet metal processing is one way of using laser light in industry. The latest technology in flat sheet metal working machinery is the solid state laser, also named as the fiber laser.

Brief description of cutting with laser; Laser light created in the resonator is transferred flawlessly by fiber-optic cable to the surface of the sheet. The cutting process begins when laser light and assist gases (oxygen, nitrogen or compressed air) are focused on the material. With the help of proven technology tables all axes are controlled precisely and parts are processed without the need for manual intervention.

Advantages of fiber laser

  • Fiber laser is the fastest process of cutting thin sheet metal.
  • The cutting process is done with higher quality compared to other options. A “clean cut” surface quality is obtained.
  • Reflective materials like aluminium, copper and brass can be cut with ease.
  • Excellent surface quality is obtained on mild steel up to 15 mm with a 2 kW resonator and up to 20mm with 3 kW and 4 kW.
  • Part process cost is very low.
  • Low maintenance costs.
  • Consumable part cost is low. The only parts that need to be changed are nozzles, ceramics and lens protection glasses over long periods. There are no other consumable costs.
  • Resonator life is over 100.000 hours.
  • Drives, encoders and rails have to be placed on precision surfaces. Even the slightest defects can cause serious damage to drives and enco- ders. Because of this, Fibermaks main body is machined perfectly on Travelling Column Duplex CNC machines.
  • Encoders, linear motors and rails on linear model machines and rack & pinions and rails on Servo motor machines are machined on CNC machines with micron-rated precision. This is the foundation of the high tolerance processing achieved with Fibermak.

The Fibermak, built with long-life, precision components and with its rigid construction is able to work continuously and precisely in the most severe conditions.

Shuttle with the balance control system.

The balanced control provides smooth vertical movement of the shuttle table. This provides precision control and assures a controlled descent with heavy loads preventing the collapse of parts.

Two Dynamic Tables for Continuously Cutting

CUTTING HEAD

  • The laser beam is delivered to the cutting head by fiber optic cable.
  • The fiber optic cable is fixed to the input of cutting head.
  • The laser is delivered to the focusing unit after being aligned in the collimator.
  • The laser beam is set to desired focus using the lenses in the focusing unit.
  • The protection Glass protects the lenses from the particles which are caused by the cutting operation.
  • The sensor Insert is part of the elevation control system and helps to adjust the distance between material and cutting head.
  • Elevation control is checked with the most precise sensors in the market. Height adjustment is controlled precisely. This helps to produce better cuts.
  • The main function of the ceramic is to protect the cutting head.
  • The nozzle is used to control the assist gases. It is also a part of the capacitive control system.

CUTTING QUALITY

FIBERMAK Momentum Gen-2 is designed to cut differ rent thicknesses and types of material such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper and galvanized steel.

Perfect cut quality is achieved by precision cutting parameters prepared by Ermaksan engineers. When necessary, the operator can also change the parameters.

Laser unit can be selected between 500 W to 6 kW. Selection of laser cutting unit power thickness and cutting speeds will vary. The following table shows a list of the materials that can be cut by the FIBERMAK.

High-Speed and Excellent Quality Cuts

TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE OF FIBERMAK

  • Powerful motors give high acceleration and speed
    When cutting, most time is lost during the movement between parts. Here, the acceleration of the axes is very important. Fibermak servo motor machines run, 1.5 G acceleration and 2.4 m/sec speed, linear motor machines run 2.5 G acceleration and 2.8 m/sec speed. Giving a serious time advantage between parts.
  • Lift type transition enables high-speed movement between partsWhen moving between parts velocity and acceleration speed is important, FIBERMAK Momentum Gen-2 uses part and aperture avoidance, raising the cutting head in the cycle, which allows you to reach maximum speed.

The cutting of part A is finished, the head moves to part B. The cutting head uses maximum acceleration and speed by using an Arc movement.
