GF Machining Solutions Demonstrates Automated Laser Texturing at IMTS

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Sept. 12, 2016 – At IMTS 2016 in booth S-8754, GF Machining Solutions will showcase its versatile, compact and automation ready 5-axis AgieCharmilles LASER P 400U laser texturing machine with System 3R WorkPartner 1+ robot. As with all of GF Machining Solutions’ LASER machines, the LASER 400 family offers infinitely repeatable high performance, incredible accuracy and impeccable quality. The range’s fully digitized process makes it easy to texture, mark, engrave and add functional texture to parts, molds and dies, even when dealing with complex 3D parts.

The modular concept of the LASER P 400U includes a patented, dual laser head that includes both a fiber nanosecond laser and femtosecond pulsed laser. This allows texturing and nano scale texturing along with burr free engraving of surfaces in single part setups. The dual-laser design also extends the range of materials that can be textured to include sapphires, glasses, polymers and ceramics.

With a footprint of just 48.4" x 87.8", the compact LASER P 400U machine is easy to incorporate into an existing production environment. The LASER P 400U accommodates workpieces with maximum diameters and heights of 4.7".

The LASER P 400U is automation ready and, with the WorkPartner 1+ robot, allows for unattended night and weekend operation. The machine also easily partners with a System 3R pallet changer to further boost efficiency, flexibility and productivity.
