ML4020 RX Laser Machine

January 01, 2014

Mitsubishi Laser introduces the new RX series, designed to give operators the capability to cut big, without carrying a heavy price tag. The all new ML4020 RX laser is built to handle a maximum workpiece size of 13' by 6.5' (4m by 2m). Resonators are available in 45 and 60CF-R.

Besides sheer size, the evolution of Mitsubishi's jetpiece technology is also evident in the RX. For instance, Blow Pierce can drastically change piercing times in mild steel, and some studies have shown a reduction up to 80 percent. FAB control is another new feature which expands the focal range of the beam, and allows more stability across the cutting area. And new M-Cut technology, also called Motion Cut, affords the ability to move through thin materials at greater speeds.

But this high end technology can be expensive. To address this and keep operating cost low, ECO Mode reduces electrical consumption, while resonator cleanliness puts less stress on optical parts and elongates optical life. Not to mention, Mitsubishi's patented resonators are still the most economical in the marketplace, and may reduce assist gas consumption by up to 30 percent.

Simple true nesting allows for quick, onsite response times, and a double cut function allows high quality cutting of protected sheet metal. Meanwhile, offcut cutting function easily cuts of remnants from the nested sheet, giving a higher material yield rate.
