CNC Laser Cutting Machine Description
Mazak's Space Gear-U44 Laser delivers the flexibility to perform (1) high-speed 2D processing of sheet metal and plate, (2) 3D cutting of pre-formed parts and (3) 3D-rotary cutting of tube, pipe and structural. It is ideally suited for fabrication job shops seeking to diversify their markets, parts suppliers supplying hydro-formed or stamped parts and machine shops that are now machining thick plates or tubing.
In rotary mode, the Mazak Space Gear-U44 Laser performs 2D and 3D cutting of tube, including rectangular, round, and triangular pipe as well as C, H, I and L-beams within a 6.0 inch diameter. The 5-axis torch and simultaneously controlled chuck let the Mazak Space Gear-U44 Laser fabricate - in one operation - precise angle cuts, weld-prep bevels and advanced contours such as saddle joint cuts. The 64-bit control incorporates illustrated fill-in-the-blank screens to quickly program such complex contours and other cuts.
With its multi-axis torch, the Mazak Space Gear-U44 Laser also laser-cuts stamped, hydroformed and spun pre-formed parts as well as high-speed 2D cuts and bevels in flat material.
With a small footprint, the Mazak Space Gear-U44 Laser can process any length pipe and up to 4’x4’x7/8” sheet.
Mazak’s Space CAM and FG CAD/CAM software options generate NC code from a 3D CAD drawing, imported or crafted in the system. Space CAM can also generate code for a slot-and-tab workholding fixture.
- The Mazak Space Gear-U44 Laser is a compact and affordable all-in-one 2D/3D laser center for maximum flexibility. Use its triple-mode, 6-axis capabilities to expand your shop's horizons and raise yourself above the competition.
- 2D mode is for flat sheet and plate cutting up to 49" square and a full .87".
- 3D mode brings into play Mazak's compact cutting head with ±360º A-axis and ±135º B-axis CNC rotary motions to quickly cut, pierce, and trim sculpted parts. Process tubes, pipes, and structural shapes by adding a CNC rotary axis.
- Mazak Space Gear-U44 Laser does much more than a 2D laser with rotary axis because of the added A- and B-axes angular capability.
