FIBER LASER TECHNOLOGY IN TITAN SERIES FIBER LASER CUTTING MACHINES:
Zero-Friction Direct Drive Motion System™ (ZFDDMS)
Unlike old-school agitating belts, pulleys rack & pinion and ball-screws drive systems, Fonon’s innovative zero-friction DDMS clearly demonstrates the industry highest accelerated processing speeds, razor-sharp laser placement repeatability along with the fastest traverse cutting rates across the entire working surface.
Adaptive Thin-to-Thick Beam Shaping
The Fonon laser auto focuses while in operation, adapting its focal point dynamically to account for changes in the thickness of the material being processed.
With Fonon’s next-generation LiteBridge machinery, positioningspeeds are 4 times faster with “Never-Miss” precision placement automation unmatched in the industry.
True Orthogonal Mechanization™ (TOM)
Carefully designed to eliminate system seizers and material misalignment with “Never-Fail” material anti-jamming technology.
Advanced Fiber Optic Delivery System™
Eliminates additional external mirrors that radically degrades the laser beams quality and focal point with a progressive ﬁber optics delivery system that ensures maximum beam control to the ﬁber cutting laser with the smallest beam spot providing cutting speeds up to 5 X faster than other lasers.
CleanCut™ / BurnFree™ Technology
Combined with a Laser Synchronized Output, eliminates laser burns around corners conﬁrming a perfect cut and highest quality edges in the industry.
Simple Beam Delivery—The Titan Series uses fiber optic beam delivery, a state-of-the-art technology ensuring the most consistent beam path.
Conventional laser cutting methods are complicated, using articulated arms and CNC beam length compensation and requiring constant aligning of the optics. This results in different cutting qualities in different areas of the work table. Laser Photonics’ fiber optic beam delivery contains no moving parts in the beam path, guaranteeing consistent cutting conditions over the entire work area.
Guarantees the industry’s fastest piercing speeds while eliminating unnecessary crates in the material.
Combats plasma generation while transitioning from straight line cuts to corners regulating the acceleration speed while maintaining superior quality and production throughput.
Native G-Code CNC Programming
Leading-edge software controlled CNC closed loop motion control unit designed for native G-code programming.
One-button Gantry Recalibration
Users can recalibrate the gantry instantly, ensuring the material is always in alignment, free of seizures and unplanned machine failures.
Integrated Laser System
Sealed Feedback Sensor, Integrated laser Source and Heat Exchange - built to perform flawlessly in harsh industrial environments, the Titan design includes a reduced floor space footprint and lower overall power consumption (Available in Titan FXi and Select Titan Express Models).
The Titan system is operated from a PC control unit with a touch screen display, equipped with multiple USB connections, RJ45 network connector, and an industry-standard FireWire (IEEE-1394) connector.
Certified Class 1 Enclosure
The surrounding enclosure of the laser cutting area that filters the fiber laser generated wave length and offers protection to operators and personnel in the area not wearing protective goggles and clothing from the reflected laser light during laser processing. Meets full FDA Compliance for stand alone laser system.
Laser Cutting Head
The Titan Series is designed with a high performance cutting head on a 3-axis system for extremely high accuracy and throughput.
The optical cartridge allows for fast replacement of focal lenses, minimizing service downtime and increasing productivity. It is recommended that additional cartridges be obtained for reduced downtime during servicing.
Lowest Cost of Operation
The Titan Series consumes less than 5% of the power required by a CO2 laser system with the same output wattage.
The Titan’s laser provides the highest possible accuracy and repeatability, resulting in the smallest possible penetration point and the finest edge control.
Operators can increase their laser cutting power in increments of 1kW up to 15kW (More powerful laser cutting power is available for custom applications).
Upgradeable in the Field
No need to remove the laser cutting machine from the production line using the optional fiber coupler.
Control System Software
Motion generation and synchronization are centralized at the PC. Motion execution is decentralized at the drives. This software operates on any standard desktop or industrial PC. Servo loops are closed on the drive. The Titan Series utilizes the software for coupling the vision module with the motion system that coordinates the laser and all interaction between the software and the machine control hardware.
Titan Series Options:
Dual shuttle system provides non-stop production to meet the high demands of real world manufacturing. Laser Photonics can customize any shuttle or material processing platform for your needs.
Pendant option allows for precision manual alignment over the entire working area.
Along with compliance with FDA regulations, Laser Photonics includes light barriers to provide a failsafe protection while operating automatic beds in any production environment.
The fume extractor option eliminates dust and debris from the cutting chamber. The fume extractor option can meet any standards, even clean room standards.
The robot arm option is used for loading/unloading material, up to 1” thick. Laser Photonics can accomodate custom requirements as needed.
The fiber coupler is a safety option used to protect the fiber cable. The fiber coupler is used as a junction between the cutting head and the laser modules. If the fiber cable becomes damaged just uncouple the fiber at the junction and replace the fiber cable. This feature can save you time and money during an unplanned outage
