Space Gear 510 II
2D/3D job shop flexibility
PROCESS: 2D/3D, HYBRID
Mazak’s SPACE GEAR MARK 510 II delivers full size machine performance with the flexibility of 2D/3D features. The SG MkII offers the flexibility to perform (1) high-speed 2D processing of sheet metal and plate, (2) 3D cutting of pre-formed parts and (3) 3D-rotary cutting of tube, pipe and structural. It is ideally suited for fabrication job shops seeking to diversify their markets, parts suppliers supplying hydro-formed or stamped parts and machine shops that are now machining thick plates or tubing.
In rotary mode, the SG 510 MkII performs 2D and 3D cutting of tube, including rectangular, round, and triangular pipe as well as C, H, I and L-beams within a 6.0 inch diameter. The 5-axis torch and simultaneously controlled chuck let the SG MkII fabricate—in one operation—precise angle cuts, weld-prep bevels and advanced contours such as saddle joint cuts. The 64-bit control incorporates illustrated fill-in-the-blank screens to quickly program such complex contours and other cuts.
With its multi-axis torch, the SG MkII also laser-cuts stamped, hydroformed and spun pre-formed parts as well as high-speed 2D cuts and bevels in flat material.
The SG MkII has a standard 5’x10′ sheet capacity and is available in 2.5kW and 4.0kW configurations.
Mazak’s Space CAM and FG CAD/CAM software options generate NC code from a 3D CAD drawing, imported or crafted in the system. Space CAM can also generate code for a slot-and-tab workholding fixture.
- SPACE GEAR MARK II is an affordable all-in-one laser center. Use its triple-mode, 6-axis capabilities to expand your shop’s horizons and raise yourself above the competition.
- 2D mode is for flat sheet and plate up to .87″ thick.
- 3D mode makes use of our compact cutting head with ±360° rotation in the A-axis and ±135° in the B-axis to maintain a normal cutting angle to all preformed sculptured surfaces. A non-contact profiler maintains a constant stand-off distance and eliminates marring of the part.
- Tubes, pipes, and structural shapes can all be processed by adding a CNC rotary chuck and supports for long workpieces. In all, six axes of CNC control allow you to cut weld preps, angled features, and much more in a single setup.
