Cutting types


Laser cutting

 

applications-small-laser.jpg

Laser cutting of sheet material is a process in which contours are cut from sheet material (metal, plastic, wood, ..), using high energy laser beam and high-pressure gas jet.

The CNC machines for laser cutting use different cutting methods, depending on the material and the cutting gas, such as reactive cutting, vaporisation cutting and melt and blow (Fusion cutting). The used laser source can be CO2, solid-state (Nd: YAG), fiber laser or diode laser. The different machines can have different degree of automatic control of the processing process through the NC program.

Vintech RCAM-Pro can program, with high quality, all types of industrial laser cutting systems for sheet parts.
Performs multi-plate automatic and interactive nesting; provides advanced tools for automatic and/or interactive menagement of the processing technology for parts without limitation of the complexity of the contours; defines the cutting conditions according to the material grade and thickness, the contour type and the required processing quality.
Nests on whole plates and/or usable remnants; programs different processing types – cutting, engraving, evaporation.
Generates NC programs with both a linear structure and with subroutines with translation and rotation using open-source Postprocessors.
Transfers NC program from one CNC machine to another with a single press of a button.

Vintech RCAM-Pro 10 is completed with a pricing and offering module, with a module for precise time reporting and an NC program verification utility.

2D pipe cutting

 

applications-small-pipe.jpgVintech Pipe is used for cutting pipe parts from pipe blanks on oxy-fuel or plasma CNC machines. Programs in cartesian or polar coordinates.

Loads flat patterns of pipe parts through import from CAD files.

The system has a module for pipe connections, for parametric design of pipe parts, without the use of a universal CAD system.

 

 

Bevel cutting

Plasma bevel cutting

applications-small-plasma-bevel-cutting.jpgThe bevel cutting is the most sophisticated technology for true shape nesting of sheet parts, in which the system for tracking the height from the plate during cutting is decisive.

The programming of bevel cutting requires thorough knowledge of the capabilities of the tracking system and significant practical experience.

Since 2005, VINTECH has been developing Vintech RCAM-Pro to program various bevel heads, equiped with capacitive, mechanical, voltage or laser tracking systems.
With the Vintech rBevel add-on module, it is possible to program any paths for bevels and chamfers with constant or variable bevel angles along the contour.

Today Vintech RCAM-Pro is a proven profesional solution for programming of plasma bevel cutting for true shape nesting.

 

Oxy-fuel bevel nesting

A capacitive, ultrasound or mechanical tracking of the height above the part is used for oxy-fuel bevel cutting for true shape nesting.

Mainly thick wall parts, with thickness greater than 50 mm are cut.

Vintech RCAM-Pro 10 provides advanced functions for designing cutting based on nesting layouts with constant and variable bevels and chamfers.

Features, which allow adjustment and processing of bevels and chamfers of a separate thick wall part, have been developed. This cutting method is the only way to process thick wall parts with top and bottom chamfers and bevels. For parts with greater thickness this working mode saves metal and in some cases the economy can reach 20% or more compared to cutting the same part with bevels in a nesting layout.

Tangential knife cutting

 

applications-small-knife.jpgVintech RCAM-Pro is used for cutting non-metallic sheet parts on special cutting plotters.

Vintech RCAM-Pro nests automatically with unlimited number of nesting levels.

The Vintech rKnife module is  developed for cutting deformable materials, such as foam, and it allows the creation of nesting layouts for cutting all parts with a single lead-in from the edge (without piercing).

 

Water-jet cutting

 

applications-small-waterjet.jpgVintech RCAM-Pro is used successfully for programming water-jet cutting machines.

The Vintech rJet module provides tools for setting up the different qualities of the cut on a separate contour, and functions for management of speed and  acceleration according to the shape of the segments of the contour.

Vintech RCAM-Pro programs modern CNC water-jet cutting machines with compensation of the bevel of the cut.

 

Plasma cutting combined with drilling and boring

 

applications-small-plasma-drill-200x200.jpgVintech RCAM-Pro v10 has advanced capabilities for managing the cutting technology for holes in sheet parts from nesting layouts.

The processing of pipe grids with thermal cutting combined with drilling and boring at one set shortens the production cycle of similar parts from weeks to hours.

The combined processing dramatically reduces the impact of temperature deformations and internal stresses on the flatness of parts with multiple holes.

The Vintech rDrill module adds tools, regimes and processing sequences for through and steped, smooth and threaded holes, for milling of contours or stepped holes, for combining plasma cutting of a through hole with counterboring or boring of its steps, in the Technological Datasets Base
