To improve and enhance the ENSIS technology, AMADA will add a 3 kW version to the ENSIS range in 2017. This machine will build on the success of the 2 kW version with improved cutting speeds and quality. In line with the existing high specification level of the 2kW ENSIS, the new machine will also be fitted with an automatic nozzle changer and AMADA's original WACS (Water Assisted Cutting System) for stable thick mild steel processing.
“Less is more” is the design principle of the ENSIS-AJ fibre laser cutting machine. This means that, although many laser manufacturers simply provide higher power fibre lasers, AMADA has looked at ways to increase cutting capabilities but keep the overall power consumption very low. The ENSIS 2kW is capable of cutting over 20mm thick mild steel. Usually, this would require 6kW of laser power from a standard type fibre laser. This 50% reduction in power provided by the ENSIS lasers gives lower cost-per-part results for the customer. On top of this, the ENSIS series of laser cutting machines has several other benefits.
AMADA's unique beam control technology, which automatically adapts the laser to the material thickness, eases the processing. With a positioning speed of 170 m/min, the fastest in class, it is also a low energy consumer thanks to the efficiency of AMADA's fibre laser technology. Using individual high power diode modules allows for an exceptionally high beam quality, giving the end user higher cutting speeds compared to systems with a lower beam quality. It also benefits from full range cutting capabilities without changing the lens and full access to the front and side of the cutting area, allowing quick and easy operation. AMADA's latest AMNC 3i control ensures simple operation with its smart-phone type 21.5" screen, including on-screen nesting, program scheduling and one-touch setup features. All ENSIS machines are compatible with AMADA's Digital Support System (ADSS) which allows customers to analyse and compare machine performance, as well as allowing AMADA to provide proactive service support.
