We are proud to launch the latest laser cutting machine – the Amada Ventis 3015-AJ to our business and customers.
Taking Calne Engineering’s capabilities to another level, we are now metal cutting using the revolutionary Amada Ventis 3015-AJ. LBC (Locus Beam Control) technology has exceptionally transformed how we operate, resulting in a faster and more controlled production process.
The fundamental benefits to our customers are remarkable, improving both processing quality and productivity to ensure a highly accurate cut. What makes the new machinery truly innovative, however is the beam-shaping system that allows for precise control of the laser beam motion.
We can provide a full range of capabilities but here are examples of the maximum thickness the Amada Ventis 3015-AJ can cut.
- Mild steel 25mm
- Stainless steel 20mm
- Aluminium 15mm
- Brass 10mm
- Copper 8mm
- Titanium 6mm
The consistent cutting-edge technology needs little human interaction which means it can be left to run independently, even overnight, and with the increased cutting speed it can handle over 920 kg at a time.
We had been thinking long and hard about investing into LBC technology, when we learnt about the machine’s Greener credentials and improved running costs, the decision was made a lot easier.
ADVANTAGES OF LBC TECHNOLOGY
- The main benefits are when processing with nitrogen because cutting speeds are very high. This leads to increased productivity and lower cost-per-part.
- Very high-quality stainless steel and aluminium processing is possible, which significantly reduces or eliminates any secondary operations required after cutting.
- LBC Technology allows the high-density laser beam power to be utilised across the side faces of the cutting kerf, providing sufficient heat at the bottom of the cut to give dross-free possibilities.
