OPENCut™ For Laser Cutting Announced By OSAI – Designed To Optimize Startup, Productivity And Cutting Quality
OSAI announced its OPENCut™ for 2D and 3D bevel laser cutting for the most demanding production requirements. Designed to optimize startup, productivity and cutting quality, this system offers numerical controls that perfectly match the most common CAD systems on the market, allowing complete programming.
The OPENCut system is a complete modular solution customizable according to an original equipment manufacturer’s needs. The system modules are from OPENCut and are specifically designed for the OPEN control OSAI CNC, up to the multi-touch operator panel, drives and I/O systems controlled via EtherCAT or proprietary fieldbuses.
The OPENCut, HMI and CAM software with 2D and 3D graphics for profile definition, has pre-defined icon libraries and automatic nesting of different profiles. Utilizing advanced software modules and hardware components, OPENCut simplifies installation, startup and time to market, reports OSAI. The technological tables integrated in OPENCut is made up of 10 Piercing lines and 10 Cutting lines for each material and thickness. Additionally, there are functions to export, import, and delete every material in the table database. The technology table parameters are managed using GCODE Macros, customizable both by the machine builder and by the PLC.
Included in the OSAI system package are: graphic, multi-touch SW oriented HMI with 2D and 3D graphics for program execution control, easy-to- customize machine logic specifically designed for laser cutting machine operations, offset management compensation of bevel cutting parameters, 3D cutting head control, newest version CNC OPENcontrol, drives connected via EtherCAT or proprietary fieldbuses, mutli-tool heads management and many more.
OPENCut is also the ideal CNC hardware/software solution for plasma and oxy-fuel cutting. With similar application features for laser cutting, OPENCut for plasma is designed to optimize startup, productivity and cutting quality. The system comes complete with all elements needed for plasma 2D, bevel and oxy-fuel cutting. The plasma generator system is available in 120, 250 and 420 amp sizes equipped with automatic gas console.
“Like all OSAI products, OPENCut is simple, ergonomic and touch-screen oriented,” reports Ivica Simunic, national Sales Manager for OSAI USA. “It’s a user-friendly solution with graphic interface including nesting and graphic work lists. Minimal training ensures fast startup and maximum productivity.”
OSAI has over 50 years experience providing leading original equipment manufacturers and machine builders with state-of- the art CNC control solutions.
