Flexible fiber laser

PLATINO FIBER LASER by Prima Power is designed and developed for the needs of the sheet metal processing industry. The integration of the high brilliance fiber laser with the PLATINO is a further technological advancement in the Prima Power offering. This system is available for sheet size 1,500 x 3,000 mm, with laser power ranging from 2,000 W up to 3,000 W and is suitable for a wide range of applications.

The architecture of PLATINO fiber allows full accessibility to the working area from three sides. This open structure makes it easy to integrate the system, at any time, with the wide range of modular automation solutions by Prima Power, from simple pallet changer to the most complete system with automatic handling and storage of the material.

PLATINO fiber benefits include:

•    Unique machine design using a synthetic granite frame offers the best thermal stability and vibration damping
•    SIPS (Safe Impact Protection System) for the protection of the machine head against collision with fixtures or workpieces
•    Total accessibility from 3 sides and highest safety protection
•    Manual loading/unloading of sheets possible even without using the automatic pallet changer

•    Speed and accuracy independent from the workpiece weight
•    The strokes of the linear axes are: X=3,050 mm, Y=1,600 mm, Z=150 mm
•    Linear axes combined speed of 140 m/min
•    Acceleration of 1.2 g for single axis

•    Pa and Ps = 0.03 mm (full stroke) according to VDI/DGQ 3441 standards

•    Automatic nozzle centering
•    Non-contacting nozzle distance control
•    Quick lens change with cartridge system for easy setup
•    Optional rotary axis for cutting tubes or pipes
•    2kW or 3kW fiber laser for efficient and eco-friendly processing of a wide range of different materials
•    Integrated Group owned CNC P30L and drives are key for seamless and user-friendly operation of the system  

•    Easy extensibility with the wide range of modular automation solutions by Prima Power, even at a later stage  

Cost effectiveness:
•    The high energy efficiency of the laser, the simplicity of the beam path, and the absence of any laser gas make the operation and maintenance costs very low
•    No foundations needed
•    Small footprint required
•    Easy and quick installed
•    Transported in a single block

PLATINO fiber main options include:
•    Sheet positioning detection system through sensor
•    Automatic pallet changer
•    Compact sheet metal loader
•    Compact Server: modular and flexible automatic material handling system
•    Connection to Prima Power automation modules
•    Rotary axis (a CNC lathe) for tubes and profiles processing
•    Software packages for advanced programming (nesting and “common edge”)
