Brief of Laser machine for cutting metal tube and profiles WATTSAN RD

Wattsan RD laser machine is a reliable machine for cutting pipes, U-channels, T-profiles and beams

The Wattsan RD pipe cutter is designed for cutting complex contours of pipes made of various metals: stainless, carbon, silicon, alloy, galvanized, structural steels, brass, aluminum, copper, titanium and other metal alloys. 

The machine has the ability to cut not only standard pipes, but also more complex shapes: U-channel, T- and double-T beam.

A solid segment-welded bed serves as a machine base, resistant to vibrations and deformations. This significantly minimizes the reject rate and allows you to process heavier workpieces.

The pipe cutter has 2 servo supports and 3 pneumatic supports. They follow the pipe contour during rotation and prevent the product from swinging when cutting. The machine uses 3 types of clamps: mechanical, electric and pneumatic with a capacitive sensor and a clamping piston, the fastest, most economical and universal way to clamp the pipe.

  • FLYCUT technology allows you to determine the shortest and most efficient cutting trajectory enabling fast cutting of round and rectangular holes in sheet metal with thicknesses up to 1 mm. In this case the laser head works without lifting and lowering which ensures high speed of work and saves gas. This mode is suitable if you are manufacturing ventilation systems.

  • Prevents corners from melting and increases the quality of manufactured products due to the laser head looping at each corner and not stopping. The obtained corners are clear and even. RINGCUT function is suitable for working with thicker materials or for cutting products with multiple corners where precision is important, e.g. gears, monograms, souvenirs, etc.

  • Professional optimization of the arrangement of parts on the sheet suitable for the production of promotional products. NESTING function allows to lay out parts on the sheet as efficiently and as close to each other as possible so that there are no gaps. This allows saving material.

  • Allows to precisely determine the position of the sheet in the work area using three reference points. You can only put the material on the work area, specify its dimensions in the program and the machine will do everything itself. You do not need to put the material perfectly on the table.

  • It is used to insert micro-joints into the processing path so that the parts do not land on its side. In this case it is easy to remove the parts after cutting. This saves working head from colliding with parts during operation. This function allows producing small parts for promotional and souvenir products without losing them in the work area.

  • This mode allows to join lines that are close to each other, that is to join them so that the laser head does not cut in the same place. This function will greatly improve performance and reduce the operation time. This function is suitable for mass production, for example, while manufacturing workpieces, promotional and souvenir products, etc.

Firm frame structure of Wattsan machines

During the machine operation inertia of gentry motion is transferred to the frame which is subjected to significant loads. Therefore material and structure of the machine play a significant role in securing the machine against deformation and breakage.

  • In the process of designing the machine, all kinds of tests of static and dynamic loads were carried out to identify the maximum allowable deformations of the table and machine bed in order to maintain the correct geometry of the structure. Due to the selected design configuration, the maximum load on the table is increased by 800 kg of distributed weight. This allows you to process materials up to 15 mm thick, with a cut quality of +-0.01 mm and 24/7 and ensures the durability of the bed up to 10 years.

    Worktable can withstand heavy loads
  • Wattsan frames are designed according to the latest technology, their primary objective is to avoid vibration when operating at design speeds and accelerations. The frame is installed on vibration mounts or is anchored to a 50 cm thick concrete pad.

    No vibrations
  • All frames undergo multi-stage heat treatment within a day which results in less vibration during machine operation. This technology allows to release tension from metal and increase the machine’s service life from 10 years and more.

Laser head for your tasks

Wattsan metal cutters are equipped with laser heads from popular manufacturers such as Raytools, BOCI and Precitec.

    1. QBH connector

      QBH connector

      It is the link between the fiber optic cable and laser head. It prevents beam return thus protecting the laser source.

    2. Collimator module

      Collimator module

      Is is used for narrowing and adjusting the laser beam. It makes the laser beam suitable for further transmission to the focusing module. It should not be replaced more or less than once a year.

    1. Focusing module with position controller

      Focusing module with position controller

      Dynamically adjusts focal distance during operation to ensure deep and quality cuts.

    2. Protective glasses

      Protective glasses

      Protective glasses protect expensive focusing optics against dust, dirt and sparks. The upper glass is rarely replaced. The lower protective glass is the main consumable.

    3. Induction sensor

      Induction sensor

      It maintenances the correct nozzle height above the material which ensures a stale cut regardless of material curvature.

    1. Ceramic nozzle adapter

      Ceramic nozzle adapter

      It protects the cutting head from heat generated during laser cutting.

    2. Nozzle

      Nozzle

      Ensures that the gas jet and laser beam are aligned for a better cut.

Ask questions

  • A fiber-optic laser is best suited for cutting metal, but a specially equipped CO2 laser with a high-power laser tube may also be suitable for this purpose. However, it should be borne in mind that the thickness of the metal for cutting with a CO2 laser is limited to 1.5 mm, while a fiber-optic laser is capable of cutting up to 25 mm.

  • The cost of an hour of laser cutting depends not only on the power of the laser machine and the speed of its operation, but also on a number of other factors, such as: the professional skills of the machine operator, the cost of renting a production room, the cost and consumption of electricity, the cost of the material itself, the amount of scrap and downtime of the machine, and much more. In order to unambiguously answer the question about the cost of an hour of laser cutting, it is necessary to take into account all these parameters.

  • A focused laser beam is applied to the metal surface, as a result of which it melts, the molten material is blown out of the cutting zone with the help of an auxiliary gas.

  • The power of the laser emitter depends on the thickness of the material being processed and the desired processing speed. For example, a 1 kW emitter will cut 1 mm thick stainless steel at a speed of 13 m/min, and a 3 kW emitter will cut the same material at a speed of about 35 m/min. Here everything depends on the budget and the expediency of using the maximum possible capacity. Although it can be said that in today's competitive realities it does not make sense to buy a laser machine with a power of less than 1 kW.
