Prima Power says its new Laser Next machine is a fast, compact and efficient 3D laser for high volume automotive production applications. The company claims that productivity on a typical benchmark component (B-pillar) has been raised by 25%.
The footprint for the Laser Next is also smaller and the layout of the machine has been designed to allow for stand-alone and multi–machine configurations. The company say the laser has a work volume of 3,050 x 1,530 x 612mm and is equipped with 3kW or 4kW high-brilliance fibre laser. Its compact fully sealed focusing head features direct drive motors, double protection SIPS, fully metallic sensor, and Focal Position Control.
