Mazak Optonics has expanded its laser line with the Optiplex Fiber III 8kW laser-cutting system. It utilizes a PreviewG control, which contains a 19" LCD touchscreen for ease of operation and is said to enable fast operation speed and high-response, high-speed machine motion. The machine’s drive system is also said to provide high speed and accuracy.

The laser-cutter integrates intelligent setup and monitoring functions to simplify operations and reduce operator dependency. It is also engineered for use with automated material handling systems. A two-pallet changer design with a helical rack and pinion positioning system is said to enable high throughput. The machine has sensors in the Multi-Function Torch that monitor piercing and cutting to improve throughput and quality. Operations are adjusted or paused if anomalies are detected.
