The Syncrono 2D laser cutting system is available with Prima’s CV5000 laser resonator. Designed for high cutting speeds, the CV5000 increases productivity, cuts thicker materials and produces a quality cut with a reduced heat-affected zone, the company says.

The system features a special laser head that includes two additional linear-driven, parallel kinematic axes on the moving gantry, creating a “machine within a machine.” This allows the cutting head to cut at an acceleration ranging to 6 G. This enables the laser system to cut more than 1,000 holes per minute.

The system is available with a fully loaded material handling system consisting of a 10- or 15-shelf storage pallet loading/unloading unit; an automatic arm with pick-up device and suction cup loading; a double-sheet thickness control device; a sheet metal separation unit; a controller; and standard protection barriers. The continuously working system feeds production as it removes and stacks part. The addition of an automatic loading/unloading system can increase production, reduce manual labor and permit “lights-out” manufacturing. According to the company, its vibration-free design and a constant beam path through the 60″ × 120″ work area provide accurate, reliable cutting, even in small and intricate profiles.

Medical Grows as Its End Market Slows

While the baby-boom generation inexorably falls apart, bone screws, plates, rods, artificial joints and less-invasive surgical fixes indicate a bright future for manufacturers of the parts needed to help keep “Humpty” together. The trick for medical-part makers is keeping up with the evolving technology needed to meet industry demands.
