A CNC and laser oscillator are said to increase the system’s overall productivity by integrating bending, forming, tapping and other processes with standard punching and laser cutting operations. According to the company, the laser punch system provides a high-quality edge cut with features such as a cutting monitor, a user-friendly laser cutting head with a crash-protection function, a non-contact height sensor and a laser power control function for complicated edge cutting.
Optional functions include in-turret bending, retractable forming dies, eight- and four-station tapping units, a tapping slug suction unit, a tapping tool life counter and an all-around deburring and pinching operation.
