All Steel Base Structure
The Base Structure and the heart of the system is a precision ground structure mated to all steel and ground gantry/bridge assembly. By ensuring the X, Y and Z planes of the base structure and gantry are geometrically correct to each other there is no need to compensate or use complex correction algorithms to adjust for a poor design or construction.
True Accuracy and performance can only come from an evolved design and years of experience; the FC series positioning system is based on a highly rigid structure using the highest performance components. The FC series is based upon a unified welded base structure with the mass to withstand high accelerations at a range of speeds allowing the system to take full advantage of the laser power while maintaining the highest accuracies.
The Positioning System uses dual guide ways on either side of the gantry and is driven by the high-grade ground ball screws combined with glass linear encoders for true position accuracies (model dependent). The latest generation brushless servo drives, which are directly coupled to Vytek’s simplicity CNC control, ensure the smoothest possible motion for the most demanding part geometries.
Our Modular Table design allows for easy access to the surface while maintaining the smallest possible footprint. Optional table configurations include a single or two drawer shuttle tables and can be either manual or fully automatic. We also offer fully integrated tube cutting options, so the FC can offer more than just flat sheet cutting.
The Latest Generation controls use high performance brushless servo drives, which are directly coupled to Vytek’s simplicity CNC control, ensure the smoothest possible motion for the most demanding part geometries.
FiberCAB includes a rugged keypad, which features a full graphic display. The operator keypad allows for machine control and is the central point for operation. It displays all critical job information and allows for on-the-fly edits to the program.
Fiber Laser Source
Fiber laser source choices are available in CW water cooled from 1500 watts through 6000 watts. Single & Multi-Mode (Laser power dependent) with wavelengths of 1070-1080 um.
Air assist is essential to the perfect cut. Nitrogen and Oxygen are used primarily but occasionally shop air is also used. The air assist would require 22 BAR – 325 psi.
