Han-Kwang USA, Lombard, Ill., has released its largest laser model built to date. The FS8025 is a flying-optic CO2 laser cutting system with dual shuttle tables, each measuring 26 feet long by 8 feet wide.
Powered by either a 2.5 KW, 4 KW or 6 KW Panasonic laser resonator, the FS8025's cutting head can cover the entire worktable area without repositioning the table in the process, according to the manufacturer.
All other currently available laser machines must reposition the table to process such a large area, resulting in longer cycle times and severe limitations on the cutting of very long, continuous part surfaces. Also eliminated are the inherent inaccuracies that result from repositioning the table in process.
Other features on this new machine line from Han-Kwang include a Siemens 840D CNC, the builder’s unique constant beam distance system (CBDS), automatic edge detection and sheet axis realignment, quick-piercing cross-jet system, multi-pulse piercing, high-speed cutting head and synchronized twin servo motors on the gantry with auto-focus control.
