  • Publication number: 20210239566
    Abstract: A beam irradiation unit (a collimator unit, a processing head, and a nozzle) includes a plurality of optical components, and is configured to convert a laser beam, which is divergent light, to collimated light and then to condense the light to irradiate a sheet metal. A photodetection element (a photodiode) detects intensity of reflected light reflected by an inspected optical component that is one of the plurality of optical components. A control device (an NC device) controls irradiation of a pierced hole with the laser beam as inspection light, subsequently to piercing the portion of the sheet metal to be cut to manufacture a product, and compares, with a threshold, the intensity of the reflected light detected by the photodetection element during the irradiation with the inspection light, to detect whether the inspected optical component is deteriorated, or a degree of the deterioration.

  • Publication number: 20210080919
    Abstract: A cutting processing machine includes a processing machine body and an NC device. The NC device includes a tool diameter correction amount calculator, a processing trace calculator and a driving controller. The processing machine body includes a processing unit and a tool trace controller. In a case where, as a processing condition, an offset amount between a control center point of a tool trace and a center point of a nozzle is set, the processing trace calculator generates a tool trace control signal for causing the control center point to be displaced relative to the center point of the nozzle by the offset amount in a predetermined direction. The processing machine body controls the tool trace based on the tool trace control signal such that the control center point is displaced relative to the center point of the nozzle in the predetermined direction.

  • Publication number: 20210048790
    Abstract: A tool to be used for bending a sheet metal is selected and tool layout data is generated in advance that includes a tool ID of the selected tool, mounting position information, and information on a place where each tool is housed in a tool stocker. A display controller controls a display to display information on a place where a tool is housed. A tool collation unit collates a tool ID read by a reader of a tool retrieved by an operator from a tool stocker with a tool ID of a tool included in tool layout data. In a case where the read tool ID matches a tool ID of none of tools included in the tool layout data, the display controller controls the display to display a message indicating that the tool retrieved by the operator is an incorrect tool.
