At FABTECH, Trumpf displayed what it calls “Smart Solutions”—software and hardware needed to drive the profitability of sheet metal fabricating operations. When it comes to laser cutting, the focus not only is on laser power and cutting speed; we’re talking minimizing part costs by paying attention to what happens after the cut.
Schelling’s fm12 plate saw offers a maximum cutting height of 10 inches. A dynamic new option is the Automatic Manipulation Device (AMD), a linear robot for fully automatic handling and cutting of full-size aluminum plates, intermediate strips, and finished parts. Gentle handling of materials, efficiency, and quality are assured.
At FABTECH…Packed with metal fabrication equipment from all of its product groups, Amada used the FABTECH 2021 stage to debut (to the North American market) its Brevis 1212 AJ, a compact 3-kW fiber-laser cutting machine that occupies a trim 8 by 10-ft. footprint and proves ideal, we learned from Amada representatives, for product and process development. It’s aimed at companies cutting parts as large as 4 by 4 ft., and seeking high-speed cutting with easy material loading.
