Hyper Gear

Unprecedented artificial intelligence – revolutionary machine efficiency

Maximum speed with maximum precision

Hyper Gear was designed in such a manner to reduce retooling time and achieve minimum outages. This engineering machine tool fulfils all these wishes. Hyper Gear is a fully automated stand-alone laser machine tool.

Harsh tests of durability gave us motivation to develop unprecedented technologies, such as complex computer algorithms, hybrid linear motors, use of electrical and optical equipment, various sensors, graphic creators, information transmission technologies and various safety concepts, also including economical aspects.

From ultra-thin to extremely thick materials, as well as coated materials, metal sheets are cut using one and only machine at the maximum rate.

Hyper Gear provides automatic messages, warnings and instructions regarding reactivation of the device.

The variety of automatic functions allows even inexperienced operators to achieve optimum productivity and quality.

The first CNC machine tool of this type in world – ultrahigh-speed

MAZATROL PREVIEW 3 control system – intelligent control system for hybrid linear motors

Traditional control concepts are based on feedback, in which the greater the cutting, the lower its accuracy. Problems related to Feedback systems: - not necessarily completely round forms, blurry edges due to high temperatures, burning of thin galvanized metal sheets and other materials.

Yamazaki Mazak developed programming technology based on their new theories read-ahead.

Cutting speed and acceleration are calculated automatically by software for each point individually. Optimum speed and required performance are calculated in advance for the next cutting point. This is the latest generation CNC system that allows achieving maximum speeds and precise effects of cutting.

Innovative HyperGear features:

  • Protection against errors during cutting
  • Cutting error warning
  • Restart after cutting failure

These functions prevent outages in case of failure, even before it occurs, thus enabling many-hour operations. As soon as machine tool sends the warning, it is restarted in no time, which prevents unproductive dry runs.

Mazak Hyper Gear laser machine tool as a standard is equipped with plasma sensor used for determining plasma level in cutting stainless steel. Machine then adjusts automatic cutting settings in order to avoid “break off” of laser beam. Moreover, there is an ongoing piercing going on. The Piercing Sensor reduces greatly time of piercing and machining of components.

While the Burning Sensor prevents cutting faults, which could result from excessive material heating, by detecting them in time and implementing applicable measures.

Completely new cutting head is designed in such a manner as to eliminate manual adjusting of the nozzle centre. In combination with automatic nozzle exchangers this decreases the retooling time, which also makes the work of inexperienced operators easier.

Smart change of cutting heads

Up to 4 cutting heads (optionally 20) (e.g. laser cutting head, engraving, splintering head) can be located in cutting head storage. 
Automatic head change takes only approx. 20 second, thus minimizing retooling time.

Smart change of nozzles

Nozzle storage (10 cutting nozzles) executing the program aligns fully automatic optional nozzle on the head.
Automatic nozzle change takes only approx. 20 second, thus minimizing retooling time.

Smart control of nozzles 

Nozzles are automatically fully checked for damage, and automatically cleaned and replaced if necessary.

Smart piercing 

Piercing is conducted as a part of mobile system and is monitored with sensors 

Intelligent control of cutting errors

The cutting process is continuously monitored, and movements are automatically adjusted in order to prevent beam break-off.

Intelligent automatic detection of contaminants of mirrors and lenses

If needed, laser machine tool automatically exchanges the head with another of the same lens in order to avoid unnecessary outages. The operator can then, during operation of the machine tool, clean contaminated lenses.

Intelligent compensation of beam length

The laser beam is maintained in a permanent way with U axis at the same length in order to, with minimum effort, maintain maximum constant quality in all the points of the table. 

Intelligent laser beam length optimization system

Thank to using additional U axis (for compensation of beam length), laser beam is kept in such a manner to provide constant focal point, and hence the same cutting conditions for the whole sheet.

Intelligent measurement & setting focal point

After cleaning the cutting lens, the machine automatically sets a reference focal distance.

Intelligent CNC system prevents the movement (Read-Ahead)

Control adjusts cutting parameters to a given contour.  This helps to prevent burning of sharp edges due to overheating.

Intelligent linear motors (for X1, X2, Y, Z & U axes) of the latest generation

Hyper Gear is a first laser machine tool driven on all the axes with linear motors. Non-contact service requires minimum maintenance and provides the highest precision and best acceleration parameters.
Linear motors are placed inside hermetic housing and maximally protected against external factors (contaminants, dust).  

Thanks to optimized cutting conditions even inexperienced operators can automatically machine any materials, thick and thin, including galvanized ones, all thanks to the diversity of smart functions of 2D laser machine tool of Hyper Gear series.
