State-of-the-art laser technology for maximum productivity and quality

Leap in performance in laser technology!

Whether it is rapidly increasing laser powers, different laser beam profiles or even new cutting gases: Today's laser machines must be able to follow current trends. Innovation is needed as applications must become more effective and transparent. In addition, the increasing shortage of skilled workers is pushing for plants to become more self-sufficient. One machine operator alone has to be able to supervise several machines.

Automation of nozzle change material supply and removal and continuous data exchange or reconciliation across the entire production flow are the prerequisites that were at the forefront of the ELEMENT L's development.

Increased safety


With modern fiber laser technology, a full enclosure that is light-tight under all circumstances is required.
In addition, its access points for material and people are monitored for safety.

Efficient operation


Independent servo driven tools provide versatile processing options.


MULTIFACETED TASKS – MULTIFACETED OPTIONS

The ELEMENT is a flexible machine platform that can be specifically adapted to your application. As the ELEMENT L laser machine, it scores with remarkably high dynamics, the latest laser technology and the ability to economically process XXL sheets. Various features can be combined with powerful software to ensure maximum productivity and performance.

In this way, the ELEMENT L becomes a seamless total solution for metal processing in just a few steps.

For further improvement of the cutting quality and process stability, it is advisable to use suitable nitrogen admixtures. The NitroPro gas mixer is the right tool to increase the productivity of the ELEMENT L.

Messer Cutting Systems also promotes the integration of the ELEMENT L in Industry 4.0 environments. Open interfaces integrated into the machine control system via REST API are used to achieve the best possible use of production data. Read all about the possibilities of data availability through open machine interfaces here.

Laser Bevel Cutting - Bevel-U

The Bevel-U bevel unit, specially developed for the laser process, enables bevels in the workpiece between -50°and 50°. The bevel angle is continuously adjusted during the laser cutting process. Edge shapes such as I, V, Y, X, and K are possible for a subsequent welding process of the workpieces. The actual cutting angles depend on the material type, thickness, and bevel type such as AS or DS.

With this unique design, precise and repeatable bevel parts can be produced. Consistent quality after nozzle changes is ensured by an automatic test and calibration routine. The design also includes magnetic collision protection for the cutting head and a manual control panel for all drives to perform adjustments directly on the machine.

Plasma Straight Cutting

Plasma Straight cutting is a particularly fast and cost-effective process for all conductive materials such as aluminium, copper, mild steel and high-alloy steel.

Due to the use of a range of different technologies for straight cutting, our machines can easily be adapted to your requirements. This ensures that we can always offer you the ideal solution according to material, thickness, cutting quality and cutting speed and recommend a great variety of tools for plasma cutting tasks.

Your benefits:

  • Extremely fast and efficient
  • Flexibly adaptable to your tasks

Pin Marker

Our robust and low-maintenance pin marking system enables quick marking of numerous materials: within a few seconds, the vibrating stylus, incorporating its own transverse axes, generates an easily legible, durable marking whilst providing easy operation. 

Your benefits:

  • High-speed marking with numbers, letters and special characters as well as lines and contours
  • Variable marking depth
  • Automatic shutter provides protection against external influences
  • Ability to apply markings through a corroded sheet surface or mill scale
  • Suitable for surfaces up to 100 x 100 mm without moving the guiding machine
  • Clear, physical markings that cannot be easily removed

Inkjet Marker

The robust Inkjet marker is able to quickly and quietly mark a range of different surfaces with text, data and logos. Due to its easy operation and modular structure, it can be used flexibly – even under extreme environmental conditions such as dust, vibration, temperature fluctuations or moisture.

The variants providing 7 or 16 nozzles allow producing single-line or two-line markings of up to 67 mm in height.

Your benefits:

  • Designed for use in the metal processing industry
  • Quick, quiet marking without damage to the sheet surface
  • Very robust and reliable technology
  • Economical use of consumables
  • Quick cleaning of the print head at the touch of a button
  • IP65 protection
  • Markings cannot be wiped off with water

Laser Nozzle Control LNC

The nozzle has a great influence on the cutting quality: With the next generation Laser Nozzle Control (LNC), Messer Cutting Systems offers the solution to operate a laser cutting machine with maximum processing quality and productivity for any material, thickness and process as well as to achieve autonomous operation. The operator does not even need to be present, the machine does it itself.

The LNC offers the following functions: Before each job, it checks whether all necessary nozzles are present in the station. To ensure maximum process reliability, the nozzle quality is regularly checked, cleaned and replaced if necessary, e.g. in the event of a defect or if a different nozzle is required for a different sheet thickness.

In addition, the calibration of the nozzle height and centering of the nozzle jet ensure reliable cut quality and shortened setup times.

NitroPro: Producing your own gas mixtures

Modern cutting gas mixers are characterized by their dynamic operation and by their ability to rapidly, and at the same time optimally, adapt the mixture to the respective cutting task. And this is exactly the case with the NitroPro mixer that we have introduced:
Equipped with a modern “mass flow controller” (MFC), it creates the conditions for ideal cutting results and increase the productivity of the lasers used.

Your benefits:

  • Wide output ranges from 20 to 125 Nm3/h, at 20–35 bar operating pressure
  • Infinitely variable mixture settings via proportional mixing valve
  • Intelligent control and communication with the laser
  • Intuitive operation of control system user interface
  • High process reliability
  • Better cutting results, in particular due to the reduced cutting burr with medium to thick material (25–66%)
  • Less rework through reduced burr
