Metal Laser Cutting

Metal laser cutting is achieved by directing a high powered infra-red laser beam onto the sheet metal through CAD software systems. The energy is focused into a narrow point which then melts the material. High pressure nitrogen gas is then used to eject the molten material. This leaves a clean and high quality cut.

More Reasons to choose Greengate Metal Components?

The Laser cutting machinery and software we use also allows for maximum material utilisation. A very narrow cut width on the laser & optimal nesting of sheet metal parts, ensures the absolute maximum number of components per sheet. Resulting in minimal wastage, maximum efficiency and lower material costs for our customers. Greengate Metal Components can handle material sheet size up to 4 x 1.5meters.

Alongside standalone laser cutting, Greengate Metal Components also offers CNC punch/laser combination machines. These machines can punch, form and laser cut sheet metal on the same equipment. This allows Greengate Metal Components to complete all of these processes without the need to change machine operation, maximising efficiency. To supplement these machines Greengate Metal Components operates fully automatic loading and unloading equipment allowing for full automation and 24hr operation. Giving our customers shorter lead times.

Ventis-AJ Fibre Laser

Ventis-AJ Fibre Laser

The VENTIS-AJ is the biggest innovation in sheet laser metal cutting and introduces the next generation of fibre laser processing machines. What makes this laser cutting technology truly revolutionary is the innovative beam shaping system that allows for precise control of the laser beam motion. Utilizing AMADA’s high power, single diode module fibre laser engines, the VENTIS is available as 4 kW or 6 kW. These engines provide a very high quality laser beam, allowing the 4 kW VENTIS-AJ to perform similar to 6-8 kW machines, and the 6 kW VENTIS-AJ to perform similar to 8-10kW machines, with much less power requirements and an unrivalled metal cutting quality for aluminium and steel.
ASF II Loading Tower

ASF II Loading Tower

ASF II is the new generation of automatic tower solutions for FO-lasers (flying optics lasers). The solution includes automatic loading and unloading of metal sheets to and from AMADA FO-lasers as well as storage of both raw material and worked metal sheets. It also optimizes the FO-laser utilization. Suction cups allow handling of different material types such as steel, aluminium and stainless steel. The tower storage system has a modular configuration, giving the user the ability to customize the number of pallets for raw material and for stacking.
