 Press Releases

  • VENTIS utilizes AMADA’s revolutionary Locus Beam Control (LBC) to achieve infinite locus patterns — ensuring optimum beam shape control for each specific cutting application. LBC technology delivers unprecedented high-speed and high-quality cutting up to 3 times faster than a conventional fiber laser.

    A high-brightness fiber laser oscillator maintains optimal quality of the high-energy density laser beam. As a result, VENTIS provides virtually dross-free cutting of a variety of materials and thicknesses including stainless steel and aluminum.

    Productivity Mode
    In the N2 non-oxidizing cutting of medium-thick stainless steel and aluminum, processing cost can be reduced by up to 75%.

    Quality Mode
    Cut quality is ensured by reducing the surface roughness by approximately 50% when compared to a conventional machine and dross is reduced to less than 10 μm.

    Kerf Control Mode
    Enables long-term stable processing during automated system operation. By oscillating the beam, the kerf width can be controlled to 2.5 times wider than a conventional machine.

    The high cutting speed, reduced power consumption, and other process parameters mean that the costs of operating the 4kW VENTIS are considerably lower than a system with a higher output level.

  • ENSIS technology enables continuous processing of thin materials and thick plate without a cutting lens change or manual setup. This is made possible by a highly-innovative resonator that automatically changes the beam mode to accommodate whatever material and thickness is being processed.

    The elimination of the need to change lenses is a crucial advantage offered by the ENSIS 3015 AJ Series — resulting in continuous, high-speed, high-quality production with all system components performing with outstanding energy efficiency.

    The latest advancement of ENSIS technology includes the addition of an advanced collimation system that controls beam diameter and beam configuration. The ability to provide infinite mode and diameter control combinations is an industry first, and it ensures unprecedented productivity. ENSIS achieves up to 66% reduction in processing time when compared to conventional fiber lasers at the same wattage and achieves 1-second clean pierce in 1" plate.

    The ENSIS Series is ideally suited for ferrous steels as well as for nonferrous metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, or titanium — achieving an unmatched combination of speed and exceptional edge quality for the broadest spectrum of material types and thicknesses.

  • The HRB Series leverages AMADA’s industry-leading bending technology and a variety of production-enhancing features that can be customized to resolve specific manufacturing challenges. For example, Bend Indicator Sensors ensure accurate bend angles without the need for test bends, and the HRB’s crowning system provides consistent angle accuracy across the entire bend length. AGRIP-A punch holders quickly and easily lock tooling into the appropriate position to reduce setup time by
    up to 60%.

    Adding a Sheet Follower system ensures safe and efficient processing/material handling of large cumbersome parts. And, an automatic foot pedal speeds production by moving to the proper position throughout production. Inclusion of a double clamp backgauge provides accurate processing of complex shapes.

    The addition of AMADA’s patented Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) makes it possible to achieve even the most complex tool setups in 4 minutes or less. The ATC is an ideal solution for variable lot sizes, complex tool layouts, and the seamless introduction of rush jobs. In addition, operators of varied experience levels can produce repeatable high-speed bending results.

    To expedite delivery to North American fabricators, the HRB Series is manufactured at the Carolina Manufacturing Center in High Point, NC.

    When the punching and laser cutting process are performed simultaneously,  the  EML-AJ Series is twice as productive with a 50% cut*2 in running costs compared to conventional machines.

    *1 In the case of SPCC (Cold strip steel sheet) of t3.2 mm

    *2 In the case of SECC (Electric galvanized steel sheet) of t2.3 mm

    - Punching function

    Improved stroke frequency when punching small diameter holes

    When punching small diameter holes (ø31.7 mm or less), the EML-AJ Series can improve the stroke frequency by 25% compared to conventional machines by optimizing the control method of the servo motor drive allowing high-speed punching and a significant improvement in productivity.

    Improved productivity with an advanced automatic tool changer

    Models equipped with an automatic Punch and Die Changer (PDC) have undergone an evolution to allow automatic replacement of tools in the processes of loading materials while laser cutting allowing high actual operation rates and further improvements in productivity. In addition, the model supports AMADA’s original ID tooling and can manage individual tools. As a result, the tool life can be monitored to improve the quality of punch processing and prevent setup errors that can occur when manually changing tools.
