The innovative X-Gap, designed by Danobat, replaces conventional cutting slats to support the material. This technology is a unique solution enabling automatic separation of good parts, internal scrap, and skeletons. The adaptive CNC servo controlled expanding X-Gap system increases efficiency and opens new possibilities to your production needs with the Danobat LB coil-fed fiber laser blanking systems.
The X-Gap is designed with two opposing conveyor belts that provide material support during the cutting process. The X-Gap follows the laser head ensuring the process always cuts over free space. This will eliminate flashbacks and part tip ups caused by table slats, making this ideal for surface sensitive materials.
The X-Gap coil fed approach eliminates the shuttle table exchange time offering up to 30% more available cutting time. Starting directly from steel coils eliminates multiple sheet and part handling, reduces raw material costs, and maximizes material utilization. The LB system cuts parts automatically and continuously, making production far more efficient.
