Automation Options for Large-Format Fiber Lasers

LVD Strippit has introduced new automation offerings for its Phoenix FL 4020 and Phoenix FL 6020 large-format fiber laser cutting machines, including options for an automated load/unload system and a range of Compact Tower (CT-L) solutions for the Phoenix FL 4020. The automation systems are designed to keep pace with the high-speed cutting of the Phoenix laser and reduce material handling and preparation time to maximize machine productivity. They also facilitate fully automated, lights-out processing.

Load/Unload Pallet System

The load/unload automation system available for Phoenix fiber laser models 4020 and 6020 handles maximum sheet sizes of 160" x 80" (Phoenix FL 4020) and 240" x 80" (Phoenix FL 6020) and material thicknesses from 0.036" to 1". It offers fast process cycle times for complete loading and unloading: 65 seconds for Phoenix FL 4020 and 90 seconds for the Phoenix FL 6020.

The load/unload system is an enhanced construction to handle large pallets. Unprocessed material can be stacked to a height of 6.2" and finished parts can be stacked as high as 9.5".

The system features a streamlined design that enables access to the raw material and easily remove the unload pallet from above. The area above the laser table remains free for manual load and unloading.

LVD's load/unload system is suitable for shops with high production volumes and for fabricators processing a high variety of jobs where parts separation and sorting is a bottleneck. It is offered as an option or can be retrofitted to a Phoenix FL 4020 or Phoenix FL 6020 machine.

Compact Material Storage and Retrieval Unit

The Phoenix FL 4020 is available with six different versions of Compact Tower (CT-L) for loading, unloading and storage of raw material and finished parts. The CT-L enables automated production from stored raw material to stacked, cut parts in a compact, small footprint system. CT-L versions for the Phoenix FL 4020 include a basic system with one tower in 5-, 10- or 14-pallet configurations, as well as a two-tower CT-L system for high-volume applications. The second tower adds nine pallets to the CT-L 5, 14 pallets to the CT-L 10 and 18 pallets to the CT-L 14. Each input and output pallet has a capacity of up to 6,000 lbs. and 9.5" of stacking height. Maximum sheet dimensions are 160" x 80", 3/4" thickness.
