The cutting head is the most important component in the laser system and determines both the performance and the reliability of the machine. EAGLE eVa cutting head has been painstakingly developed by our engineers to operate at more than 20kW, and fulfills the demand for ultimate reliability. This is our response to market demand for the most efficient, reliable, powerful machines.
Purity – eVa is the first cutting head in the world to provide automatic centering and laser beam control without moving parts within the head. The most common cause of cutting head failures is contamination coming from the outside, and motorized lens movement. The internal cleanliness significantly increases the lifetime of the head and the optical elements.
Wearing parts – Only 3 wearing parts are required: the cover slide, the cover slide seal and the cutting nozzle. The eVa cutting head is the cheapest cutting head to operate, and is easy to maintain by the operator.
The cover slide is positioned 355 mm above the nozzle in systems with ultra-high laser power. This distance is the most important parameter for determining the frequency with which the cover slide is replaced. The greater the distance, the less frequent the cover slide requires replacing. In the eVa head, this distance is the biggest of any heads on the market.
Service – Basic maintenance is designed to be carried out by the customer without requiring service from EAGLE. The entire eVa head does not have to be removed for basic maintenance; maintenance can be carried out with the head installed.
Protection – the eVa head has patented anti-collision protection consisting of 4 levels. Firstly, the capacitive nozzle sensor avoids low speed collisions. Secondly, when sheet metal is being cut the head can slide to the side, giving the machine time to stop. Both levels 1 and 2 are resolved within seconds by means of automatic nozzle centering. Thirdly, in the event of a high-speed impact the cutting head will rotate on springs, thereby protecting the lower module. Finally, the lower module breaks off at full traversing speed (more than 100 m/min) in order to avoid serious damage to your machine. The system is ready for use again after less than an hour, since only the new centering module needs to be replaced and screwed on.
Auto Focus – the auto-focus function of the eVa cutting head makes it possible to change the focal length between cutting and burning quickly. Eliminates the need to manually adjust the focal distance based on the material type and thickness. This feature saves setup time and eliminates potential mistakes.
AC – automatic centering is also an anti-collision system, because collisions at speeds of no more than 50m/min do not affect the machine and production efficiency. This solution reduces the number of expensive wearing parts in the head such as ceramic parts or adapters, therefore reducing the operating costs. The AC system prevents the beam from being emitted when it is not centered. As a result, the entire head and its components such as the nozzle or sensor are protected from damage, and their service life is extended considerably.
ACS – The automatic centering and collision protection system increases both the efficiency and safety of the machine, and reduces the cost of potential collision damage. The system automatically centers the beam after a collision without intervention by the operator. The patented modular solution in the laser head consists of moving parts. These are located below the optical system. The sensors immediately recognize collisions due to the movement of the nozzle and the distance between the sensor and the laser beam. If the collision has occurred at a speed of less than 50m/min, the head centers itself automatically and continues to operate without operator intervention. This solution is particularly recommended for companies that intend to work unsupervised, at night or at the weekend.
Motorized Zoom – this function automatically changes the beam diameter at the workpieces, adapting the spot size to the material thickness and type perfectly. Thanks to this, the EAGLE laser system archives unbeatable performance and efficiency with any material type or thickness.
eBeam – Function for changing the beam mode. This makes the beam automatically change between Gaussian mode and ring mode. This is particularly important when cutting thick components with high quality and speed when using oxygen.
