Eastman Machine Co. (Buffalo, N.Y.) has released its latest-generation laser cutting system for the cutting of composite fabrics in aerospace, automotive and industrial applications. Its key feature is a dual-configuration tool head, equipped with a 200W gas-assist laser (100W optional) and three individually aligned and calibrated tool spindles that may be set up with any combination of rotary and straight knife blades, notches or punches. The tool head also has a pneumatic pen/marker holder to facilitate labeling of cut pieces. The combination of a laser plus three tool spindles is said to be a first for the market and is intended to minimize associated changeover time in shops with variable material-cutting requirements. Other new features include an industrial-sized fume extractor, an onboard chiller, a touch-screen controller, a linear rack-and-rail drive system, and a diagnostic control cabinet.
