LVD Company nv has redesigned its Orion 3015 Plus CO2 laser cutting system and has added a 19” touch screen graphical user interface to improve machine setup and ease of use.
LVD’s Orion 3015 provides cost-efficient processing of a range of materials in sheet sizes up to 1500 x 3000 mm. The redesigned hybrid-style system now features LVD’s latest TouchTM-L graphical user interface technology, allowing both routine and complex operations to be quickly and efficiently completed with minimal operator input.
Touch-L simplifies the laser cutting process through use of intuitive graphical icons and visual indicators to display and control functions. Touch-L also performs automatic nesting and job generation. It provides the user flexibility to easily change cutting qualities, position and type of lead-in, and add or relocate micro joints for all online generated jobs.
The addition of the Touch-L interface to the redesigned Orion simplifies setup and operation of the system, making the laser cutting system ideal for entry level users.
The Orion 3015 Plus also features automatic cutting gas selection, automatic focal positioning and automatic cutting gas pressure control with servo valve to further aid in machine set-up and operation.
The laser cutting system is equipped as standard with Process Control, which automatically senses piercing times and detects and controls plasma when cutting stainless steel and aluminium. This feature maximizes processing time and minimizes part damage due to loss of cut.
Orion 3015 Plus employs the highly reliable Fanuc RF excited fast axial flow CO2 laser. The laser, CNC control, drives and motors are fully integrated, providing superior processing speed, high reliability, and low operating and maintenance costs.
Automation options are also available. The laser cutting machine can be equipped or retrofitted with an automatic load/unload unit or a Compact Tower (CT-L) warehouse system.
