Nozzle changer for Electra system

Following the successful integration of the nozzle changer on its CO2 laser systems, LVD is extending the option to the Electra, LVD’s high-speed fiber laser cutting system. Featuring storage for 10 nozzles, the option brings greater autonomy, reduces piercing times and increases overall throughput on the machine.

QMmeltpool 3D

Concept Laser has presented a tool for position-related real-time monitoring and three-dimensional visualization. Using in-situ process monitoring systems based on an on-axis system it is possible to obtain information about defects during the build process. The next quality level with QMmeltpool 3D will be available from 2016 onwards for the M1 cusing and M2 cusing machines.
