  • Publication number: 20210268604
    Abstract: A laser processing apparatus 3 includes: a laser head H; a conveying device 4 that conveys a workpiece W; a head driving mechanism that moves the laser head H; a dust collecting box 60 that moves below the workpiece W and follows the laser head H such that the dust collecting box 60 is disposed below the laser head H; an outer support roller 81 and an inner support roller 82 that are provided at an opening 61 of the dust collecting box 60 and are rotatable around an axis parallel to a width direction orthogonal to a conveying direction Fy; and a counter roller 9 that rotates the outer support roller 81 in synchronization with a conveying operation of the workpiece W by the conveying device 4. The counter roller 9 transmits motive power of the conveying device 4 as a belt conveyor to the outer support roller 81.

  • Publication number: 20210268603
    Abstract: A laser processing apparatus 3 includes: a laser head H; a head driving mechanism that moves the laser head H above a workpiece W; and a dust collecting box 60 that moves below the workpiece W and follows the laser head H. A non-contact support unit 7 is provided at an opening 61 of the dust collecting box 60, and the non-contact support unit 7 suctions a lower surface of the workpiece W toward a suction surface 71 and supports the workpiece W without bringing the lower surface of the workpiece W and the suction surface 71 into contact with each other. An outer support roller 81 and an inner support roller 82 that are each rotatable about an axis parallel to a width direction orthogonal or substantially orthogonal to a conveying direction Fy are provided at the opening 61.
