super_turbo-x_3015fiberThe new Super Turbo-X 3015 Fiber series is the latest generation of Mazak’s Super Turbo-X lasers. Until now, the Super Turbo-X has always been a CO2 laser, but the latest machine utilises fibre laser technology to deliver faster cutting times and lower running costs.

The Super Turbo-X 3015 Fiber is available in both 2kW and 3kW versions and has a significantly smaller footprint than its predecessor CO2 machines and other competitor fibre lasers. The compact machine has a 7,400 x 2,900mm footprint, which makes it suitable for sheet metal job shops with limited floorspace.

The new laser cutting machine is able to cut highly reflective material, such as copper, glass and galvanised sheet and offers significantly lower running costs compared to CO2 machines, with savings on electricity consumption and maintenance. Typically, laser users benefit from lower running costs due to a circa 80 per cent reduction in oscillator electrical power consumption and a 100 per cent reduction in laser gas consumption, compared to CO2 lasers.

In terms of cutting performance, the Super Turbo-X 3015 Fiber is capable of significantly faster cutting speeds than its CO2 laser competition, capable of high-speed cutting for both thin and mid-thickness materials. The machine is capable of rapid speeds in the X- and Y-axes of 50m/min and 25m/min in the Z-axes along with acceleration of 0.2G for thin sheets, 0.12G for middle thickness sheets and a maximum cutting speed of 50m/min.

The Super Turbo-X 3015 Fiber machine can be fitted with Mazak’s existing FMS laser automation systems, which enables an easy upgrade to fibre cutting for existing ST-X CO2 laser machine users.

Yamazaki Mazak Ltd

Yamazaki Mazak is the world’s largest manufacturer of computer controlled (CNC) metal-cutting machines. With over 260 different models, the Mazak product range includes CNC lathes, machining centres, multi-tasking machines and flexible manufacturing systems as well as laser processing machines.

Machine tools are called “Mother Machine” because they relate to the manufacturing of almost every product around us and are very important in supporting the base of “world manufacturing.” Our mission as a machine tool maker is to enrich people’s lives and contribute to society by developing and providing high performance machine tools that can produce high accuracy work in a short time.

We were among the first to start foreign production as a Japanese machine tool maker. Following the establishment of Mazak Corporation in the USA, we expanded our production base worldwide to include the UK, Singapore and China, as well as further expanding our Japanese manufacturing operations. We are the only machine tool maker to have established a global production system. With these local plants, we have been able to provide high quality service and have built strong relationships based on mutual trust with customers from all over the world.

True to the Yamazaki principle of supporting the customer locally, Mazak’s European Manufacturing plant, in Worcester UK, opened in June 1987 and was immediately recognised as the most advanced machine tool manufacturing plant in Europe. The factory has expanded three times since then and now offers over 29,000m2

This is a complete machine tool manufacturing plant. Mazak machines the components that go to make its spindles, turrets, tool magazines and Mazak even manufactures its own sheet metal covers. As with all Mazak manufacturing plants, the most rigorous practices and Kaizen programmes ensure continuous improvement.

Serving all of Europe’s markets, more than 80% of the machine tools built in Worcester are exported from the UK into Europe. More than 17,000 Mazak machines have been manufactured here so far and this number continues to grow every day.

Mazak European Manufacturing Plant is recognised for its factory automation, technology and overall management practices. Selected as one of the “Top Ten Companies in the World” by the Swedish Royal Academy of Science and Technology underscores this worldwide reputation.

As with all Mazak factories, this facility comprises a variety of flexible manufacturing systems, consisting of machining centres, multi-tasking CNC lathes, and a sheet metal FMS – all designed for unmanned operation.

The plant benefits from highly skilled employees who are committed to continuous improvement through the 25 “Kaizen” teams in operation.
