New Equipment: October 2009
Z-LASER has introduced a new product family for the stone industry, the Z M18-B. The laser is available with wavelengths of red and green with output powers up to 100mW.
The green lasers are beneficial in the stone industry as the green light is more visible and can be perceived better in bright surroundings, the manufacturer reports. The green Z M18 comes with output powers up to 40mW. An M12 connector guarantees an ideal electrical connection.
Rated at IP67, the laser is fully waterproof and ideal for applications which require washing down of the equipment.
Furthermore, the LP-HFD is able to indicate the contours of a final workpiece in advance so that the material can be exactly placed. This enables an increase in work quality and an optimal material exploitation, which is very important for materials like marble or granite, according to Z-LASER.
For this special anniversary model, Prodim has greatly expanded the CAD capabilities of the Proliner® 6 Series.
The measuring head of the Proliner® can be rotated in every direction and has a wire that can be stretched out for several meters. With the metal measuring pen at the end of the wire, users can simply mark the relevant points. These points are directly translated into a digital DXF CAD file. Measure straight, curved or very complex shapes in an instant with an accuracy of 0.5 mm. Additionally, measure any object in horizontal, vertical or slanting position. The digital drawing connects directly to any CNC machine or plotter, and production runs in only a couple of minutes, according to Prodim.
