Fanuc And Amada Lasers - New Automation System
Thanks to the availability of more flexible laser technology with Ethernet field bus options and newly supported guided
simulation software for Amada or Fanuc Laser – fabricatorscan now use these high speed laser controls for increased
productivity and streamlined efficiency. Integration of CNC Press Brakeand robots to cell controllers has also made the
fabricators able to better manage their operations across different equipments those are controlled by various
systems. As a result of this and also due to the utilization of newly standardized field bus architecture it is now possible
to streamline both system integration and data sharing. At the same time fabricators do also enjoy improved overall
productivity with better cost efficiency, reduced setup requirement, superior manufacturing intelligence and also a
safe work environment.
These high-speed Fanuc or Amada lasercontrols those come with an embedded Ethernet interface now also allow
integration of the CNC system with the company network for high speed transfer of part programs and data collection.
At the same time now it is also possible to establish world-wide links for seamless and efficient remote diagnosis and
maintenance services. Another great advantage is that as no public operating system is required for integration of this
Ethernet interface it is also completely immune to viruses and hacking attacks that ensure a completely safe and
trouble free connection for the business networks. The new simulation software compatible with Fanuc Laser controls
also contribute to additional gains in productivity by providing a part programming environment for realistic
operations at a fraction of its initial cost. At the same time it also makes it easy for the operators, designers and
maintenance personnel to work with better development efficiency with uninterrupted production for increased
Some of the most important features of the new simulation software used in CNC Press Brakes and laser controls are:
Automatic creation of robotic programs for calibrating the simulation with the real robot system
Generation of visual warning for any possible detected collision during the robot simulation process
Reduced system and accelerated system startup with application software packages
Easy and user friendly interface allowing powerful programming
Ability of offline testing cell layout and Cycle Time
High speed system integration and reduction in setup cost with offline programming
Graphical and AVI video output results display of robot programs for quick and comprehensive system
The new laser cutting system developed for Amada laserand CNC press brakes now provide the fabricators the
flexibility of cutting both thick and thin metals by changing the configuration of the laser beam electronically. The
newly introduced fiber laser system has now eliminated the need of manually changing the cutting lens and allows
high speed cutting of the material. This new technology has not only improved speed of cutting and cut quality but
also allowed the fabricators to produce tight corners and small holes in thick metals. Most laser cutting systems now
available in the market now include an automation system.
