Echternach, Luxembourg - the newly released FANUC Laser models FF500i-A and FF1000i-A complete the FANUC
Fiber Laser series of 500W to 6000W. The entire FANUC Fiber Laser series can be ordered and delivered as of now.
These Fiber Lasers are built for a diverse range of applications that require high precision performances such as cutting
– even for thicker sheets or other materials, welding, marking or surface treatment. All Fiber Laser systems cover the FANUC-typical
features and include a CNC controller with integrated Laser control, servo drives and a Laser oscillator. All I/F are high-speed
and the usual reliable interface connections are already prepared and tested ex-factory. Furthermore, intelligent Laser
functions help to significantly increase the machine productivity and simplify the handling of the system. Specific Laser
functions and interfaces allow easy integration of robot systems into the Laser machine process i.e. for material handling
purposes or material post processes, if required.
Generally, all FANUC Fiber Lasers require less floor space. The FF500i-A
and FF1000i-A model are 19 inch rack-mounted models that can be installed with very little space in the machine control
cabinet. The FF500i-A and FF1000i-A are the most suitable Laser systems to be applied on cost effective Laser cutting machines
for thin or medium range thicknesses material processing and specifically fine contour cutting machines.
Application possibilities in generative processes e.g. LAM (Laser Additive Manufacturing) are applications that have been
set as future targets for FANUC Laser systems. The growing market for Laser hybrid machines is of particular interest to
FANUC customers. Therefore, FANUC will be offering a control system mid of this year, making it easier to combine classic
machine tools (lathes, milling machines, etc.) with the FANUC Fiber Laser Technology.
The growing number of Laser-Welding applications have led FANUC to focus on such Laser processes, which can easily be realized
by supplementing Fiber Lasers with robots as they share a common control platform. At FANUC, Laser models can be bought
as complete systems, but they are also available as in-standalone control.
A suitable I/F & Software to control TCP motion of FANUC robot systems synchronized with FANUC Fiber Laser power control
is already available. The FANUC Fiber Lasers with higher output capacities (4kW - 6kW) will mainly be used for such applications.
Fiber Lasers of medium and higher Laser output power are available for Laser cutting (1kW - 6kW). Ultimately, the customer
interest and the respective application determine the selection of the Laser oscillator and the Laser output power.
Based on 30 years of experience within the field of Laser and CO2 Laser systems, more than 20.000 systems have been installed
worldwide. The new FANUC Fiber Laser has thus developed into a premier cutting Laser application, based on which FANUC engineers
have been able to acquire a large and extensive pool of know-how. FANUC engineers are able to collect basic Laser cutting
data for Fiber Lasers, which benefits both - the machine manufacturer and the end user – since this enables FANUC to deliver
a highly Laser-process-oriented design.
The worldwide-operated FANUC service guarantees high machine availability and eternal spare parts coverage of all Laser components. FANUC Lasers provide long-term, cost-effective productivity that users can rely on, they have been designed to achieve extended life spans and require a minimum of maintenance throughout the span of their service life.
FANUC Corporation is the worldwide leading manufacturer in factory automation for CNC control systems, robots and production machinery (ROBODRILL, ROBOCUT and ROBOSHOT). Since 1956, FANUC has been a pioneer in the development of computer numerical control equipment in the automation industry.
