Touch-Probe height detection option performs a reliable and precise Terrain Mapping on the surface of the material, allowing the cutting head to automatically adjust its standoff before piercing and during the cutting process.
By touching the surface of the slab, it’s able to detect disparities in thickness and make compensations in the “Z” height. This is particularly important to prevent unexpected results during bevel cutting.
- Probe before each pierce on the fly (while cutting)
- Probe before cutting the pierce points, path or full sheet
- Probe four corners and the center of a sheet only
- Probe only lines with bevels programmed
- Use the probe to set standoff when setting plate origin
Laser Sensor option performs Precision Terrain Mapping on the surface of the material to be cut. This information is then used to maintain an accurate stand-off distance between the nozzle and the workpiece, resulting in more accurate parts than any other cutting head on the market. Other cutting heads set their stand-off only at the piercing point and then assume the workpiece is completely flat along the cut path, which is almost never the case. As material flatness varies and stand-off changes, so does the geometry of the part being cut. A constant, accurate stand-off is critical when angle cutting, and the greater the angle, the more critical it becomes.
- Mapping before cutting the pierce points, path or full sheet
- Mapping four corners and the center of a sheet only
- Mapping only lines with bevels programmed
- Use the laser as a pointer to edge find, find the centre of a hole or use the dot to set the plate origin
