AMADA's VENTIS is the first fibre laser cutting machine with LBC Technology for enhanced stainless steel and aluminium processing

AMADA's new VENTIS-3015AJ is the first fibre laser cutting machine to feature the company's LBC (Locus Beam Control) Technology, which improves both processing quality and productivity in stainless steel and aluminium. In combination with a newly developed, high-brightness, 4 kW single diode module fibre laser oscillator, LBC Technology sets a new world standard for laser profiling. In conventional fibre laser cutting systems, energy density reduces as material thickness increases, leading to a lack of efficiency and the need for defocussing the beam. Conversely, the use of LBC Technology, which is a world first for the laser-cutting market, offers flexible beam pattern control matched to each application, while retaining high-efficiency cutting and high energy density. Defocussing is therefore no longer required. In short, LBC Technology can freely manipulate the laser beam to create an infinite number of locus patterns that are advantageous to cutting performance.

For manufacturers of conventional fibre laser systems, the only way to negate the loss of energy density is to increase the power output of the laser oscillator, but this comes at a cost, both in terms of purchase price and greater electricity consumption. In contrast, the new VENTIS, with its specially developed, 4 kW single diode module oscillator and LBC Technology can reduce electricity bills by 30%. T he LBC Technology equipped VENTIS-3015AJ has three primary functions: Productivity Mode, Quality Mode and Kerf-Control Mode. In Productivity Mode, users can realise a significant improvement in throughput when cutting stainless steel and aluminium with nitrogen. For instance, when processing stainless steel, the VENTIS with LBC Technology will prove twice as fast as using a conventional 4 kW fibre laser cutting machine, while aluminium will be 2-3 times faster. T hese performance levels, in tandem with lower energy consumption, can reduce processing costs by up to 75% in some instances.
