Laser beam machining (also referred to the acronym LBM, Laser Beam Machining) is a thermal process that uses a laser beam as a heat source, as it can be easily concentrated by lenses reaching power densities above 1MW /mm2. When the laser interacts with the material, the energy of the photons is absorbed by the material itself causing a rapid increase in temperature locally leading to melting; the material is removed without mechanical contact but by expulsion through gas such as oxygen, nitrogen or compressed air. Unlike conventional processes, there is no wear and the removal of the material does not depend on its hardness, but on the optical properties of the laser and the thermophysics of the material. This is why it is particularly suitable for working with high thermal resistance alloys and ensures dimensional tolerance within the tenth.
Nuova Inox has heavily invested in this field in recent years, comparing the best technologies and today can offer a cutting service consisting of 2 fibre technology lasers and a co2 that can handle:
The tube laser cutting technology is nothing more than the combination of the automation of various technologies designed to create a machine capable of handling laser cutting of circular, square, open or special profiles; the material is removed by laser beam, the motion control of the axes is managed by a CNC numerical control, the pneumatic / electric / hydraulic automation part is managed by PLC and the programming is done through 3D modelling and CAD / CAM processing setting.
From a mechanical point of view the structure is made with an iter equal to the realization of a machine tool. Potentially the equipment is able to handle tolerances within the tenth and Nuova Inox today manages:
Tube internal cleaning management. Through an active catcher we can protect the internal part of the profile thanks to the enabling of the instrument which manages the beam deposited inside the profile avoiding the contamination of it. (Valid only on 2D processing, valid only with round geometry profiles from 30mm to 240mm).
The punching of the sheet is the act of imprinting a sign, or a shape, on a surface by the pressure or the percussion of an instrument called punch.
Potentially the equipment is able to handle tolerances within the tenth and Nuova Inox today manages:
Bending is a mechanical process with which an object is deformed by applying forces on it.
It is used to obtain certain shapes, but also to achieve a stiffening of the structure. In the industrial field it is obtained through a special machine called bending machine.
Potentially the equipment is able to handle decimal tolerances and Nuova Inox today manages:
The assembly of manufactured items is the production cycle phase during which the components, after the engineering and the realization, are joined as per project specifications; the assembly of the parts can be done by welding, mechanical assembly or mechanical interlocking.
Nuova Inox is able to manage the creation of products both with welding and assembly methods; logistically there are two distinct areas:
The aesthetic finishing cycle involves an additional processing to the surface of the raw materials; it consists in subjecting the parts obtained from laser cutting to a scrubbing treatment using abrasive brushes. The level of finishing may depend on many factors: the degree of grain of the blades that make up the brush, the pressure exerted at the time of the operation, the speed with which the brush rotates at the time of contact with the material and the direction in which the body brush moves with respect to the material.
Nuova Inox manages the service in 2 macro categories:
Nuova Inox is able to provide various services requested by loyal customers, who need full package management:
