Multiple loading and unloading options in terms of both length and positions, give rise to different configurations of the system. One can choose the suitable configuration considering individual production requirements and the nature of activity. It is not easy to decide when multiple options are available: we are here to offer help. Let us first understand the different types of loaders available on the LFT-III-3D Series tube laser cutting system.
The automatic bundle loader is the standard optional loader on the system. It can be 6.5 m/8.5 m or 12.5 m long with a total weight capacity of 1500 till 5.000 kg. It can be placed on the rear side of the machine. This loader is ideal for medium to large production volumes for parts that use the same cross-section tubes.
Bundle or bunker loader for an LTFT-III-3D Tube cutting laser
This loader is ideal for medium to large production volumes for parts that use the same cross-section tubes.
This automatic loader is normally installed on the rear side of the system, but can also be installed on the front side. It can be used to load both standard and non-standard cross-section tubes.
The operator must place the raw material individually on one or all of the steps of the loader. The system will then automatically load and process the tubes/profiles one by one.
Every LFT-III-3D Machine is equipped with this single bar loading function. This loader function allows the user to load one tube/profile at a time. It can be used from front side of the machine. The single bar loading function or the step loading function provides an alternate loading method to the bundle loader for single pieces tube. This double loading function configuration option offers great flexibility in production planning and allows the user to efficiently address urgent production requirements. When the need to cut parts urgently using a different material than the one already loaded on the bundle loader, the frontal Manual loading function offers the solution. You can easily put on hold the raw material coming from the bundle loader and load your emergency job from the front side without the need to make changes to the machine setting. Simply load the program for the new part, process it and then reactivate the production that was put on hold with the raw material coming from the bundle loader. Without this double loader function configuration, the machine would have a lot of unproductive time, resulting in a loss of efficiency and revenue.
