HYBRID STYLE LASER CUTTING MACHINE
THE PERFECT MACHINE FOR EASY LOADING
AND PROCESSING OF SURFACE SENSITIVE
MATERIALS
THICKER MATERIAL, FASTER SPEED, HIGHER ACCURACY, GREATER EASE OF USE
Amada's laser machines constantly provide our customers with optimum solutions. Among
them, the LC-Alpha is the best selling hybrid type laser cutting machine with over 3000 units
delivered worldwide since it's introduction in 1993 proof of its reliability.
The latest LC-Alpha IV NT series makes material loading very easy, a feature characteristic of
the table type. Many of the features now installed as standard equipment comes as a result
of our commitment to listening to our customers requirements. The outcome is an upgraded
series of laser machines that can cut thicker materials with faster speed, higher accuracy,
and greater ease of use.
The LC-Alpha IV NT machines are network ready and provide our customers with optimum
solutions as core machines of the Virtual Prototype Simulation System (VPSS).

HS Capacitance Head
Motorised Auto Focus Control System
The sensor is constructed to reduce the effect of plasma and
adopts a high frequency (MHz) band that is less susceptible to
effect of noise, which maintains the gap between the material
and laser head during high speed processing for stable cutting.
The optimum focal point is automatically set from the cutting
database to suit each material. A constant focus is maintained,
ensuring optimum laser beam quality and reduced assist gas
costs.

High Pressure NC Gas Control System

The assist gas pressure is automatically controlled for the entire
range of materials and thicknesses being processed.
A beam stabilizing unit is utilised to ensure a clean beam delivery
path from the oscillator to the cutting head. Other features such
as the Cyclone Gas Cleaner and Oil Mist Decomposition Unit
eliminate other foreign particles within the oscillator.
SIMPLIFIED OPERATION AND
EASY MAINTENANCE
GREATER EASE OF USE
Smaller footprint and front-open structure
The integral mechanical-electrical structure, a tradition of the
LC-Alpha series provides a small footprint. The pass line of the
table is at the optimum height to ensure the ease of loading and
unloading materals.

FUNCTIONS AND OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

Front guard
Large workchute
Guards
CAD/CAM
A large workchute (500 x 1470 mm for
LC-1212 αIV NT and 500 x 1750 mm for
LC-2415 αIV NT) is adopted to achieve
highly efficient microjoint free processing.
These large workchutes improve the
access to finished parts.
The machine is equipped with spatter
guards to prevent molten material from
escaping from the processing area. They
also serve to prevent the laser beam
dispersing during cutting operations to
ensure the safety of operators.
This fully automatic CAM system nests
all the user defined parts and quantities,
applies punch tooling/laser profiles,
defines the processing sequence and
generates the NC program. Increase
productivity for your punch, laser or
combination machines.

One-touch change of laser head
operating mode
The AMNC/PC control panel and
lightweight laser head allow three
operating modes to be selected for the
laser head, depending on specific cutting
operations to be performed. The operation
of the laser head can be changed by one
touch on the screen.
Urethane rollers
OVS IV
As well as steel ball bearings (used
to enable easy heavy sheet loading),
urethane rollers are also featured as
standard on the cutting bed. These are
particularly useful when processing
surface sensitive materials. The operator
can simply choose ball bearing or rollers
before processing.
The OVS IV system measures the pitch
of two reference holes and automatically
compensates for any origin deviation
when transferring a sheet of parts
from the punch machine. The pitch
and circularity of the cut holes are also
measured. When the measured values
fall outside the specified limits, an alarm
is activated.
AUTOMATION OPTIONS
Automation to suit your application
Amada's modular automation systems cover everything from compact, single pallet load\unload systems to fully
automated stockyard systems for 24hour processing.
06
Repositioning mechanism
Cutting plate
ECO Cut
The workclamps can be automatically
moved during processing to the optimum
position to suit the material being
processed. This avoids any dead zones,
resulting in improved material yields
as well as allowing longer sheets to be
processed.
Due to the hybrid nature of the machine
axis movements, the dedicated cutting
plate uniformly supports the cutting area
to ensure stable processing.
Utilising smaller nozzle sizes and
reduced assist gas consumption, ECO
Cut achieves higher speed processing of
mild steel up to 8 mm thick compared to
traditional oxygen cutting.

Storage box
Dust collector
Bar Code Reader
Boxes to store consumables and
operator's manuals are installed on
the control side. These storage boxes
increase the ease of maintenance and
help housekeeping on the shop floor.
Efficiently collects any dust and particles
generated during the cutting process
to ensure a clean working environment.
Due to the hybrid nature of the machine,
the dust collector only needs to extract
dust and particles over a very small area,
allowing for a smaller unit and reducing
valuable floor space.
The LC-Alpha IV NT is equipped with a
bar code reader to allow reliable recall of
programming data on the shop floor. By
scanning the setup sheet from the CAM
system, the operator ensures the correct,
latest version of the program is loaded
into the machine control.
