Tsugami’s new LaserSwiss SS207-5AX is a 20-mm, seven-axis Swiss-type CNC lathe with two fully integrated SPI lasers, one for laser cutting and one for welding. The machine is the first in its series to incorporate laser welding. The company says that this additional welding head provides flexibility for operators, who can now reflow a swaged tube end, or weld two pieces together and then machine them.

The laser-cutting and laser-welding heads can be mounted on either the X1 and Y1 axis or B axis, and customers can choose lasers ranging from 200 to 400 W. All laser operations are programmed and driven from the machine’s FANUC 31i-B5 control, and each laser’s frequency, pulse width, focus and power are adjustable. Additionally, users can adjust the assist gas pressure from 5 to 350 psi, enabling the use of different pressures for piercing, cutting and welding.
