Extended LCG-AJ power range

AMADA’s latest line-up of LCG-AJ flatbed laser cutting machines are equipped with AMADA developed 2, 3,4, 6 and 9 kW fibre laser oscillators. AMADA were the first laser machine manufacturer to develop their own fibre laser source. Manufacturing and testing takes place at AMADA's Fujinomiya factory and incorporates all of AMADA's extensive knowledge gained over more than 35 years of laser machine production.
Offering high cutting speed, low running costs and the ability to cut copper, brass and titanium, the LCG-AJ sets a new benchmark for performance and price at this level of investment, ensuring optimum productivity and value.

New machines have been added to the LCG-AJ line-up in order to make it a comprehensive range now including 2, 3, 4, 6, 9 kW powers. The LCG-AJ range has a lightweight Y-axis carriage with low centre of gravity providing a 30% weight reduction. Most LCG-AJ fibre lasers incorporate an automatic nozzle changer for uninterrupted processing and all are compatible with AMADA's Digital Support System (ADSS) which allows customers to analyse and compare machine performance, as well as allowing AMADA to provide proactive service support.

With a positioning speed of 170 m/min, the fastest in class, they are also low energy consumers thanks to the efficiency of AMADA's fibre laser technology. Using individual high power diode modules allows for an exceptionally high beam quality, giving the end user higher cutting speeds compared to systems with a lower beam quality.

AMADA's latest AMNC 3i control ensures simple operation with its smart-phone type 21.5" screen, including on-screen nesting, program scheduling and one-touch setup features.
The LCG-3015AJ machines are fully compatible with AMADA's latest, high speed part picking system, the TK L. This gives high speed removal and stacking of finished components, increasing productivity and minimizing downtime between the cutting process and the next step of manufacture. All LCG-AJ machines can be equipped with load\unload systems for full productivity.
