    Yamazaki Mazak has launched a new laser processing machine designed for large batch cutting of small and medium diameter tube. The new FT-150 FIBER is a compact laser processing machine that benefits from an ergonomic design.

    Equipped with a 3.0kW fiber resonator, the FT-150 FIBER can process single workpieces up to 6,500mm in length and 150kg in weight with a maximum tube diameter of 152.4mm. 8m and 180kg options are also available. The machine can cut a wide variety of materials typically used in the architectural, automotive, construction and furniture industries.

    The FT-150 FIBER can perform multiple processes, including cutting, tapping, drilling and thermal drilling. In-process time is reduced, as it negates the need for processes such as punch press, deburring and hole tapping. Productivity is further improved due to its large capacity bundle loader, which can automatically load raw material weighing up to four tonnes, to enable continuous operation over extended periods. The FT-150 FIBER can also unload workpieces in a variety of ways, from standard solutions to automatic sorting systems for the efficient production of large-lot and multiple part models. The machine is capable of unloading finished parts up to 3m in length (a 4.5m option is also available) into parts buckets, or via an optional conveyor belt. The sorting system can sort and unload small, medium and large finished parts in four different areas. 

    The FT-150 FIBER also has a number of features to deliver accurate and high-quality cutting. These include an additional U-axis in the cutting head as well as a tilting laser head for accurate bevel cutting.

    Mazak’s CAD/CAM software, FX-TUBE, allows time study and consumption cost data to be integrated into a customer’s ERP system, while the imported 3D data edit function considerably reduces editing and waiting time. Overall productivity is further enhanced by the NC Control, MAZAK FX, which includes important functions such as the Quick Restart Program, the ability to schedule using QR Codes generated by FX TUBE, and a ‘Database Viewer’ of machine’s cutting condition database.
