Cutting Applications

In laser cutting, applications development usually presumes that the machine is operating properly and the laser is providing a good quality beam. It is usually a good idea to verify system condition before attempting a difficult job.

Items to check would include:

  • focus lens
  • nozzle
  • beam quality

    I recently joined a little company which has an Amada LC2415-Alpha III with FANUC 16-L CN. Unfortunately, they haven’t got any manual operating machine, so I need some help to understand how this machine works well. The main problem is using the NC, because I can’t interact with it. Although, I’ve worked for quite some years with Trumpf lasers, I really can’t remember most of the commands or codes that I had to use in order to do what I need. For example, How can I recall an especific part of the program, after an interruption. Do you know what I mean?
    Some other help I need is about G-codes and M-codes, even I’ve read some of them here on your very useful web, but there are always more and different codes into a .CN program, so that, I’m always wondering what are these commands meaning.

    Thanks a lot for your patient and, of course, sorry for my unpleasant use of English, I’m still learning it.

    Have an extremely happy Eastern. See you!!!

    Hi, Miguel,
    Your company really needs to spend the money and at least buy a manual.
    I haven’t worked with Trumph, so I can’t give you any direct comparisons, either.
    Does Amada have an office or distributor in your country?
    And, Happy Easter to you, too.
