Tsugami LaserSwiss has announced that it will introduce an all new LaserSwiss CNC machine tool at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at McCormick Place in Chicago September 10-15. This is the first time the company has publicly displayed this machine model.
All laser operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s FANUC 0i-TF control and the laser’s power, pulse width, frequency, lens focus and nozzle standoff are on-the-fly adjustable. The machine is equipped with a gas box capable of switching between two assist gases, which are typically nitrogen, oxygen and argon.
The machine has 10 tool positions in addition to the laser and it is convertible, meaning it can be run as a traditional Swiss style lathe using a guide bushing or operated with an optional chucker kit, which can be installed in minutes.
The LaserSwiss on display at IMTS will have a 200W laser, but customers can order Tsugami LaserSwiss machines with laser watts ranging from 200W to 500W depending on their preference and model selection. The SPI laser units are rated to last 500,000 hours without service.
Tsugami LaserSwiss machines are distributed throughout North America by Tsugami/Rem Sales. Both companies are divisions of Morris Group, Inc., one of North America’s largest machine tool distributors.
