> PowerSort Dalcos: separating and sorting system for laser cutting

Italy, Castelfranco Veneto: Easy part separation, zero flashback and machinability of extremely thin materials 

 

Separating and sorting system for laser cutting

The latest developments in laser cutting automation open up a wide range of new possibilities for sheet metal manufacturers.

The modern and innovative Powersort system for Dalcos LXN machines, allows the laser cutting of the material in suspension, with these main advantages:

  • Simple separation of the parts.
  • Possibility to process materials without the underlying supporting blades, thus eliminating the flashback phenomenon.
  • Easy disposal of large cutouts in the material.
  • Easy elimination of the skeleton.
  • Simple processing of thin – to very thin material (range 0.15 to 2 mm).

 

The PowerSort system by Dalcos gives a wide range of new possibilities for sheet metal manufacturers.

Easy part Dalcos for the easy part separation

Material tensioning

First of all the machine introduces and tensions the material with two opposite grippers and keep it in suspension in the longitudinal direction.

Scrap cutting

Once the material is tensioned, the laser head cuts of the internal scrap that fall into a dedicated scrap tray, easy to reach and to empty.

External shape cutting

The laser head cuts the external shapes of the parts. The parts can be left micro-jointed, ready to be separated from the skeleton.

Parts separating

A moving belt conveyor slides underneath the material, and the laser cuts out the micro joints, leaving the part free to fall on the underneath belt conveyor. This operation is repeated for all the internal shapes.

Products sorting

The belt conveyor slides away from the cutting zone, the skeleton is cut by the laser cutting head and it falls into the scrap tray underneath. The finished parts are ejected from the machines by a secondary belt conveyor.

Zero Flashback, completely eliminated the problem

Flashback is the phenomenon that takes place when, cutting material on the traditional supporting bed for laser machines, the laser beam cuts where one of the underlying nails stands. The beam, after cutting the material, interacts with the metal of the supporting bed and the portion of the material around the flashback area is damaged. The suspended laser manufacturing, by eliminating the supporting bed, completely eliminates this problem.

 

Easy disposal of large cutouts of the material

Traditional lasers, to get rid of large scraps or cutouts, need to destroy them by cutting them into smaller pieces allowing them to fall through the underlying supporting system.

With the suspended laser manufacturing, having eliminated the supporting bed, large cutouts can be easily cut and disposed of and they fall directly into the scrap tray.

Easy elimination of the skeleton

Just like large scrap, the skeleton can be disposed of by separating the part entirely (no need for micro joints) and by letting it fall into the scrap bin, along with the rest of the scrap.

Simple cutting of thin materials

When laser cutting thin materials, most sheet metal manufacturers encounter the problem of the vibration in the material, due to the action of the compressed gas that is blown on the material surface.

The suspended laser manufacturing greatly reduces the material vibration, since the material is firmly held by the two opposite grippes and kept in an adjustable tension. Suspended laser manufacturing allows the machining of materials as thin as 0,15 mm, up to 2 mm and 1,500 mm wide.
