60” x 120” workpiece capacity complements state-of-the-industry laser and machine control technology

Han-Kwang USA announces immediate availability of its new Series PL, specifically Model PL 3015, a long bed, 2D flying optic laser system capable of handling 60” wide x 120” long workpieces.  With a long bed gantry arrangement, less motion is required on the machine, providing greater working stability and reduced maintenance requirements.

Model PL 3015 features rapid single axis speed of 4724 ipm, simultaneous X-Y axis speed of 7900 ipm and maximum cutting speed of 1181 ipm, all with positioning accuracies better than +/- 0.004” per 118” of travel and repeatability to 0.001”.  A dual shuttle pallet system is onboard to maintain optimum productivity in processing.

This Han-Kwang laser system features a powerful Panasonic CO2 laser resonator in 2, 2.5, 4 and 6 KW versions, as well as the builder’s patented beam radius control, which optimizes the beam diameter for various material substrates and thickness variations, resulting in improved part quality.  Additionally, the constant beam delivery system on the Han-Kwang laser provides better consistency in the beam quality at the focal point.  These features and benefits to the user are delivered in the S5 high-speed cutting head found on the machine.  The advanced Han-Kwang sensing board and head design improve cutting speed for all sheet metals, according to the manufacturer.

A plasma monitoring unit constantly tracks cut errors to further reduce out-of-tolerance conditions in the cutting cycle, while a built-in lens crack sensor monitors the state of lens contamination, with instant alerts through the onboard Siemens CNC to provide operators and maintenance personnel useful and immediate alarm notifications.

All machine mechanical movements and laser cutting operations are controlled by the powerful Siemens SINUMERIK 840D CNC.  With its open architecture, 10GM hard drive and plain language commands, the CNC enables faster start-up and reduced time to first part for the programmers and operators alike.  Further, a remote service support feature allows online communication to the CNC manufacturer for troubleshooting assistance.  

An optional rotary axis is available for tube cutting up to 12” OD with this Han-Kwang laser system.  Fully automated materials handling systems, pallet towers and other equipment for production improvement are also offered by the company.

Model TL 6015 Tube Cutting Laser System

Automated loading and parts handling system complement state-of-the-industry laser and machine control technology

Han-Kwang USA announces immediate availability of its new Model TL 6015, a tube cutting laser system capable of handling 24’ long, 6.5” diameter workpieces up to 1/4” wall thickness in mild steel and 0.200” in stainless steel.  Equipped with a powerful 2.5KW Panasonic laser and a versatile Siemens 840D CNC to control all functions of the machine, the TL 6015 can significantly increase the tube production in any department or shop, especially when used with Han-Kwang’s proprietary “Flex 3D” tube cutting software .  The unit comprises an automatic bundle loading system with tube V-support, auto-centering rotary chucking system, laser cutting station and automatic parts removal station.

Maximum positioning speed on this new laser system is 4700 ipm for the X-

axis and 120 rpm for the rotary A-axis.  Max acceleration rate is 1G, while the laser beam is precisely controlled by the unique Han-Kwang Auto Focus Control (AFC).  This AFC technology allows the machine to automatically adjust the focal length of the cutting lens to accommodate variations in the materials being processed or changes in material feed, which eliminates the downtime normally associated with manual adjustments.

A new generation of sensing board in the S5 laser cutting head on the TL 6015 translates into faster cutting speeds on round, square or rectangular shapes.

In a recent design modification, the entire loading section of the machine has been enclosed, as depicted in the attached illustration.
