UFL Line

UFL Line - Fiber Laser
" The UFL fiber Laser, built for long-life with precision components and its rigid construction, is able to work continuously and precisely in the most severe conditions.
Drives, encoders, and rails have to be placed on precision surfaces. Even the slightest defects can cause serious damage to drives and encoders. This is why, main body of UFL Fiber Laser is machined perfectly on Travelling duel Column Soraluce CNC machine towers.
We have two Sereis Fiber laser, UFL-S Series with Servo motors and UFL-L Series with Linear motor teccnology. Encoders, linear motors and rails on linear model machines and rack & pinions and rails on Servo motor machines are machined on CNC machines with micron-rated precision. This is the foundation of the high tolerance processing achieved with the UFL Fiber Laser.

" What is Laser?
" A Laser is the abbreviation of “Light Amplification of Stimulated Emission of Radiation
The Foundation of the Laser depends on thephotons, which are created by electron transfers between different energy levelled particles.
" Internal structure of laser unit
The ytterbium laser light is created inside the laser unit. Laser light created at the resonator is transferred to the cutting head by the fiber-optic cable without loss of power or quality. Thus, a light with a high beam quality appropriate for metal cutting is provided.

Sheet metal working with a Fiber Laser
"Sheet metal processing is one way of using the laser light beam. The latest technology in flat sheet metal working machinery is the solid state laser, also known as the Fiber Laser.
Brief description of cutting with Fiber: Laser light created in the resonator is transferred flawlessly by fiber-optic cable to the surface of the sheet. The cutting process begins when laser light and assist gases (oxygen, nitrogen or compressed air) are focused on the material. With the help of proven technology tables all axes are controlled precisely and parts are processed without the need for manual intervention.

" Advantages of Fiber Laser
"* Fiber laser cutting is the fastest process for thin sheet metal.
* The cutting process is done with higher quality compared to other options. A “clean cut” surface quality is obtained.
* Reflective materials like aluminium, copper and brass can be cut with ease.
* Excellent surface quality is obtained on mild steel up to 15 mm with a 2 kW resonator and up to 20 mm with 3 kW and 4 kW.
* Part process cost is very low.
* Little to no maintenance costs.
* Consumable part cost is low. The only parts that need to be changed are nozzles, ceramics and lens protection glasses over long periods. There are no other consumable costs.
* Resonator life is over 100.000 hours.

" Technological Advantages
Powerful motors provide high acceleration and speed
The most time loss is during the cutting and movement between the parts. Here, the acceleration of the axes is very important. UFL Fiber Laser servo motor machines run, 1.5 G acceleration and 2.4 m/sec speed, linear motor machines run 2.5 G acceleration and 2.8 m/sec speed. This provide a serious time advantage passing through the parts.

Lift type transition enables high-speed movement between parts
" Velocity and accelaration speed is important while moving between the parts. UFL Fiber Laser uses part and aperture avoidance, raising the cutting head in the cycle, which allows you to reach maximum speed.

" Ultra fast communication with EtherCAT
Using EtherCAT connections allows for ultra fast communication result in the faster control. Increasing the speed of control, ie Laser on/off speed, gas on/off speed etc. increases cutting capacities.

Fly-CUT feature
Both circular and equilateral parts can be cut with Fly-Cut feature of UFL Fiber Laser.

Cutting processing is performed with active G code structure within minimum duration
G code flow is important when performing any action on the UFL Fiber Laser with a CNC controller. G code flow on the UFL Fiber Laser is designed to achieve the desired result using the shortest route. The time loss is minimized during operational transitions.

You can prevent time and energy loss while cutting thin materials by using No Pierce and No Lead In features.
"UFL Fiber Laser incorporates fast part processing techniques allowing you to save time and reduce energy waste during production.
* Cutting with No Pierce (Hole-less Cutting)
Cutting thin sheet metal without piercing gives a significant economic advantage.
* Cutting with No Lead In
No Lead In is cutting without passing, providing much faster cutting speeds.

" Conveyor
The conveyor is situated under the cutting area where small parts and scraps drop to a wheeled container.

Servo Motor UFL-S Fiber Laser: is a unique machine having ultra low energy consumption and very fast cutting capability with minimum maintenance cost.
"Single Cable Servo Motor Technology
" "* UFL-S Fiber Laser has 4 servo motors for all axial movements. These are the latest technology single cable servo motors.
* Power and process data are transmitted in one standard motor cable, significantly reducing costs.
* This technology also gives more accurate positioning and more geometrically accurate parts.

" "Main Advantages of Servo Motor Systems
" "* Low investment cost for a high performance machine
* Low energy consumption
* Easy repair and maintenance
* Low repair needs
* High linear rigidity
" Linear Motor Technology
"* High velocity and acceleration
* Zero maintenance cost
* Micron-sensible positioning control
" Linear motor technology is used on UFL-L Fiber Lasers bridge movement
On Linear Motors, position information is read from linear encoders by an optical receiver.
The working principle of the Linear Motor
The working principle of the Linear Motor is based upon the laws of magnetism. Two magnets apply force to each other when placed face to face. If opposite poles are placed, the magnets will pull together, if same poles are placed magnets will push apart.

The principle of movement
The moving part of a linear motor is directly coupled to the machine load, saving space, simplifying machine design, eliminating backlash, and removing potential failure sources: Ballscrew systems, couplings, belts, or other mechanical transmissions. Finally, the bandwidth and the stiffness of the motion system are much higher, giving better positional repeatability and accuracy over unlimited travel at higher speeds.

"Cutting Head
* The laser beam is delivered to the cutting head by fiber optic cable.
* The fiber optic cable is fixed to the input of cutting head.
* The laser is delivered to the focusing unit after being aligned in the collimator.
* The laser beam is set to desired focus using the lenses in the focusing unit.
* The protection glass protects the lenses from the particles which are caused by the cutting operation.
* The sensor insert is part of the height control system and helpsto adjust the distance between material and cutting head.
* Height control is checked with the most precise sensors in themarket. This helps to produce better cuts.
* The main function of the ceramic is to protect the cutting head.
* The nozzle is used to control the assist gases. It is also a part ofthe capacitive control system.
* Fiber optic cable connection to the head from top end.

" "Shuttle Table
It has two hydraulic and dynamic tables allowing ontinuously production while processing goes on. The operator collects cut parts and loads the next material for processing. Fully automated loading – unloading systems.

" Back CNC Control Panel
CNC control panel at the back of Machine allows direct Shuttle table control.

"IPG Laser Source
The ytterbium laser light is created inside the laser unit. Excitation is performed by laser diodes enabling high efficiency with low costs. Laser light created at the resonator is transferred to the cutting head by a fiberoptic cable without loss of power or quality. This provides a high beam quality appropriate for metal cutting.

" "Chiller Unit
The chiller unit cools the laser source, the linear motors, and collimation unit: inside the cutting head.

" Extraction Unit (Filter)
"* It provides a convenient working area by absorbing little particles and smokes occur while in production. It automatically works once the cutting starts. The suction cells open actively according to the cutting heads position. This provides accurate absorption.
