The Mazak SpaceGear is a versatile laser that can cut in both 2D and 3D mode. The SpaceGear can be equipped with a 4000kw resonator to cut up to 7/8″ mild steel. Mazak’s 3D laser cutting machines offer a flexibility not offered by many other lasers.
Benefits of the SpaceGear
- Cuts holes, contours, angles and bevels with only one setup
- Process tubes pipes and structural shapes by adding a rotary chuck
- Six axes control allows for cutting weld preps, angled features and much more
SpaceGear 2D/3D Laser Cutting
Mazak’s Spacegear Mark 510 II delivers full size machine performance with the flexibility of 2D/3D features. The SG MkII offers the flexibility to perform (1) high-speed 2D processing of sheet metal and plate, (2) 3D cutting of pre-formed parts and (3) 3D-rotary cutting of tube, pipe and structural. It is ideally suited for fabrication job shops seeking to diversify their markets, parts suppliers supplying hydro-formed or stamped parts and machine shops that are now machining thick plates or tubing.
In rotary mode, the SG 510 MkII performs 2D and 3D cutting of tube, including rectangular, round, and triangular pipe as well as C, H, I and L-beams within a 6.0 inch diameter. The 5-axis torch and simultaneously controlled chuck let the SG MkII fabricate—in one operation—precise angle cuts, weld-prep bevels and advanced contours such as saddle joint cuts. The 64-bit control incorporates illustrated fill-in-the-blank screens to quickly program such complex contours and other cuts.
With its multi-axis torch, the SG MkII also laser-cuts stamped, hydroformed and spun pre-formed parts as well as high-speed 2D cuts and bevels in flat material.
The SG MkII has a standard 5’x10′ sheet capacity and is available in 2.5kW and 4.0kW configurations.
Mazak’s Space CAM and FG CAD/CAM software options generate NC code from a 3D CAD drawing, imported or crafted in the system. Space CAM can also generate code for a slot-and-tab workholding fixture.
