Mitsubishi HVII series cuts part-to-part transition time
The new HVII series machines are available in 2, 3 or 4 kW.

MC Machinery Systems Inc. is introducing a new series of 2D hybrid laser processing machines, following on its HV series but offering easier setup, expanded processing area, enhanced productivity, and improved operability and maintenance.

Wood Dale, Ill.-based MC Machinery offers a range of metal cutting and machining products, including wire and sinker EDM systems, laser and waterjet cutting installations, press brake lines, high-speed VMCs, and EDM drill machines, along with a range of consumable products.

The HV Series laser systems are supplied with the new M700 series control package, with a 15-in. color, touch-screen display, with faster graphics and a USB port for faster data transfer, than previous control systems. A thorough database of processing conditions makes operations more efficient.

The new HVII series uses Mitsubishi’s resonator technology and is available in 2, 3 or 4 kW. Travel in the Z-axis is twice as fast as previous models, so part-to-part transition time is effectively halved. Larger stroke in the Z-axis means that pre-formed parts can be loaded and cut.

The HVII also simplifies maintenance procedures. The self-check function monitors the replacement cycle of consumable parts and maintains the condition of the laser machine at its peak performance. The system collects the operating data from the processing machine and resonator preventing unexpected down time due to damage to the parts.

Other highlights of the HVII design include an attached tool storage center; a fine-pierce option; a diminished clamp dead zone for an increase in parts production and quality; lens failure protection; jet piercing; and end-joint processing.
