VULCAN LASER-MAX 1.5

Vulcan Laser-Max 1.5

The next evolution in the Vulcan cutting systems is the Laser-Max 1.5. With minimal heat affected zone on the cut edge, the parts coming off the machine will cause less wear to downstream fabrication equipment. Minimal kerf combined with 4-axis controls enable the cutting of intricate patterns. Laser cutting uses less heat – edges are not hardened leading to less wear and tear on other machinery. Exclusive Patent – pending technology allows operator to access parts directly from the table and eliminates need for a pallet shuttle system. Coil feeding made easy as full table enclosure is eliminated –  Laser-Max 1.5 can be sheet or coil fed. Running speed up to 1,400 inches/minute on thinner materials (26ga). All rack and pinion 4-axis (2-y, 1-x, 1-z) controlled. Z is servo driven with automatic torch height.
