The NLC “Glass Tubing Cutter” was designed to process thin wall borosilicate glass. The system is composed of a single laser shared between four processing lanes. While one lane is cutting, the other three are feeding or ejecting and getting ready to receive the laser again. A software algorithm determines which lane is ready first and directs the laser to that lane. This makes the most efficient use of the laser as possible. All four lanes can be run simultaneously or individually depending upon current needs.
This particular Laser Glass Tubing Cutter system produces 40+ parts per minute. The laser produces clean, fire-polished, sterile edges. Cutting lengths are all computer controlled and set through a touch screen operator interface. Machine size and capability can be easily scaled up or down to meet most budget and production needs. A second generation machine has been developed that employs only three moving parts per lane thus eliminating almost all mechanical service issues. Although this machine was designed specifically for thin wall borosilicate glass, other types of glass and wall thicknesses can also be processed. Call us to discuss your specific needs.
