SALVAGNINI is the World Leader

in FIBER LASER Technology

L5

All Salvagnini laser machines feature revolutionary mechanical and control solutions and original programming and nesting software, to assure ease of use and maximum flexibility and productivity.

The L5 and the L3 benefit from the experience and know-how that Salvagnini has acquired during years of continuous investment in fiber laser technology.

Our concept of productivity:
High cutting speeds, low running costs and a competitive cost-per-part.

Competitive cost-per-part.

In a variable market that demands consistent quality at the lowest cost, the L5 is the answer for companies wanting to improve their competitivity. Extremely high cutting speeds and low running costs allow the L5 to offer a truly competitive cost-per-part.

The compass: maximum dynamics and minimum consumption.

The L5 features an original, patented mechanical drive system consisting of a compass structure, made possible by the absence of a defined optical path. This structure is driven by a pair of rotary motors, allowing the cutting head to be moved on the XY plane over a distance of 170 mm, with dynamics of up to 5g and extremely low consumption, on account of its light weight.

The compass is the very heart of the mechanical solution patented by Salvagnini, offering similar dynamics to those of linear motors, yet keeping energy consumption and running costs down.

The L3 is the machine that Salvagnini has dedicated exclusively to fiber. Its cutting-edge technology means that it is able to reach the very highest levels in terms of speed, accuracy, reliability and performance, fully and totally respecting the environment. The fruit of Salvagnini’s consolidated experience in the field, the L3 today represents the future of fiber cutting. 

Cutting speeds.

The characteristics of the fiber source and the optical chain developed by Salvagnini, comprising the fiber that transports the beam and the focusing head, generate a laser beam with a high power density for high-speed cutting (more than 60 m/min) on medium and thin material and high-quality cutting on thicker sheets.

Linear cutting speeds (m/min)

Running costs.

The L3 boasts extremely low running costs, thanks to:

  • the high performance of the source and chiller;
  • the elimination of an optical path;
  • the elimination of laser gas;
  • low maintenance costs;
  • the option for cutting with compressed air.

Feeding and unloading solutions.

Salvagnini laser systems offer different configurations for feeding blanks, picking up and stacking finished parts and unloading skeletons.

The Salvagnini pallet changer is unique: during the pallet changeover phase, the table with the processed workpiece always passes beneath the table with the sheet to be cut, eliminating any risk of cut parts or scrap falling onto the incoming blank.

The ADL and ASL connections automate the procedure for loading blanks and unloading parts from the worktable:

L5 + ADB configuration

L5 + ADL + MCL configuration

L5 + ASL configuration

L5 + ADL + MCL + MWT configuration

L5 + ADL + MBT configuration

L5 + ASL + MVL configuration

 

The MCL is Salvagnini’s automatic, integrated solution for unloading and separating the parts produced on its laser systems and stacking them in a customized area. This allows functional, integrated confi gurations to be created and, for the first time, makes flexible “batch-one” processing a reality for laser cutting systems too.

established a presence in the U.S. in 1987 for the marketing, sales, service, and support of Mazak laser cutting systems in North America. Mazak Optonics specializes solely in laser-cutting processes for the metal fabrication, structural steel, and construction markets. Products manufactured include a complete range of 2D and 3D laser machines.

Our parent company, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation, is now the world’s largest manufacturer of machine tools, including CNC turning centers, machining centers, and laser cutting systems. For over twenty years, we have been the leading edge of laser technology development.

In March, 2009 Mazak moved in to the World’s Largest Laser Dedicated Technology Center in Elgin, Illinois. We have made this commitment to the North American manufacturing industry to help companies meet application development challenges and to educate the industry on the potential impact of emerging laser technology.
