MC Machinery to Showcase New Mitsubishi GX-F ADVANCED Series of Artificial Intelligence-Enabled Fiber Lasers at FABTECH, September 13-16, 2021

MC Machinery will be showcasing the new GX-F ADVANCED Series of artificial intelligence-enabled fiber lasers at FABTECH in booth A2923, where laser experts will be available to answer questions and provide live demos.  


The newest model of the ASTES4 laser automation system, the ASTES4 HS, also will be highlighted at the MC Machinery booth. Featuring a patented, integrated tool changer for up to seven tools, the ASTES4 HS can run unattended, reduce labor costs and prevent bottlenecks in downstream production. It has lower capacity than the ASTES4 SORT models (220 lbs. part weight per head vs. 1100 lbs. part weight per head) and can sort up to 50 percent faster.  


About the GX-F ADVANCED Series 

Designed by Mitsubishi engineers and with all major components built by Mitsubishi, the GX-F ADVANCED Series is one of the only laser systems in the industry with a single source for service and support. 


Intuitive AI technology makes the GX-F ADVANCED Series easy to use for operators of all skill levels—especially valuable because of the ongoing shortage of skilled manufacturing workers. 


By integrating the most advanced gas reduction technology, the new GX-F ADVANCED Series delivers more power while using up to 77 percent less nitrogen. 


The New Lasers Offer: 

·       High processing stability with superior beam-quality consistency 

·       Beam cleaning and anti-reflection technologies 

·       Faster and more stable processing  

·       Reduced operator input  

·       No setup time between materials 

·       Lower operating cost translates into higher profitability  

·       Longer consumables life  

·       No material-surface scratching  

·       Optimized cutting speed  

·       On-site or remote monitoring of cutting process 

·       Reduced piercing time  


Key Features of the GX-F ADVANCED Series Include: 

·       AI-assisted cutting  

·       Augmented reality with drop and cut, part rotation, and rectangular nesting  

·       User-friendly, smartphone-like controls  

·       Real-time tracking of electric and assist gas consumption 

·       Advanced gas reduction technology (AGR-eco) 

·       Real-time on-site and remote monitoring of the cutting process 

·       Remote diagnostics and predictive maintenance 

·       Mitsubishi-designed automated zoom head  

·       Automated nozzle changer 



To significantly reduce setup time, the Mitsubishi zoom head delivers speed and flexibility by automatically changing the beam size, shape and focal point for each material, with the ability to process plates with a wide range of thicknesses. Piercing time is reduced by as much as 60 percent, making it possible to pierce a 25-mm-thick mild steel within 0.8 seconds. 



Mitsubishi’s proprietary AI technology monitors the cutting process in real time with audio and light sensors, automatically adjusting parameters to optimize cutting performance. 

·       If a bad cut is detected, the machine will make the required adjustments to improve or regain the cut. It also can optimize the cutting speed in all plates, no matter the plate quality.  

·       The AI nozzle monitor uses a camera system to monitor nozzle life and the nozzle changer automatically replaces defective nozzles to support continuous processing.  


The GX-F ADVANCED Series can be easily integrated with a wide variety of automation systems that increase productivity and reliability, including material storage, material loading, material removal and part sorting.
