Multi-Axis Laser Beam Cutting

Multi-Axis Laser Cutting and Welding Center

3d_laser1Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. (SJTI) provides multi-axis precision laser cutting, drilling, and welding to meet the tight tolerances required by the aerospace and other industries. We also work with three dimensional parts that require drilling & cutting on difficultly curved surfaces or at extreme angles for fabricators, metal spinners and hydroformers. SJTI utilizes the Trumpf 5000W TruLaser Cell 7040. With a working range of 13 feet x 5 feet Y x 30 inch Z, and maximum simultaneous axis speeds of 98 inches per second, it is the most advanced system of its kind in the Midwest.

With the ability to construct a cutting and welding program from a CAD model, the prep time is greatly reduced, and the use of its integrated rotary axis makes processing of tubular components highly efficient.

Reduced accuracy/dynamics with fully extended Z = 750 mm axis for cutting 2D parts. It is recommended to use the 2D cutting box to cut 2D parts. 

4 Pure mechanical accuracy without software compensation, according to VDI 3441 across the entire working range. The accuracy achievable on the work place depends, amongst other things, on the part geometry, it’s pre-treatment, material and on its position in the work area.
