Fiber laser with unique cutting capabilities

The AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ is a fiber laser of a new generation that enables almost dross-free cutting of stainless steel and aluminum. The machine, which received the MM-Award for Innovation exclusively at EuroBLECH 2018, scores equally with high speed and quality as well as low operating costs.

Increasing demands on cutting speeds and production quality, especially in the processing of stainless steel and aluminium, present sheet metal working companies with new challenges every day. We at AMADA therefore focus on innovation and further development of our solutions and technologies in order to provide our customers with the best possible performance through forward-looking products.

The latest innovation highlight is the fiber laser cutting system VENTIS-3015AJ. “The VENTIS is opening up a whole new dimension in fiber laser cutting because, with it, it is now possible for the first time to cut aluminum and stainless steel practically burr-free and with very low surface roughness,” explains Axel Willuhn, Product Manager for Punching and Laser Technology. This makes the new AMADA ­VENTIS-3015AJ particularly interesting for customers who have previously decided not to use fiber lasers to cut aluminum and stainless steel out of quality reasons.



Outstanding beam quality

Unique in the world of laser cutting technology VENTIS allows the laser beam to move from side to side in different trajectories in a matter of milliseconds. This cutting mode makes it possible to work with outstanding beam quality at all times. Thus, the laser in the AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ achieves a sensational BPP value (Beam Parameter Product).

This beam quality is of vital importance in ensuring high-quality cuts and the nearly burr-free, smooth cutting of stainless steel and aluminum. If necessary, the kerf width can be increased, for example to simplify the removal of the parts. The AMADA VENTIS-3015AJ also excels thanks to its exceptional speed. As a result, this 4 kW system can easily rival machines in the 6 kW or even higher classes. The high cutting speed, the reduced power consumption and other process parameters mean that the costs of operating the VENTIS are considerably lower than for a system with a higher output level.
