The TLM series machines were the first of their kind in the world and have the world's best sales record.
The 3D, five axis control laser cutting machines are aimed at thin to medium-thickness parts and are ideal for prototype fabrication as well as small-lot mass production.

Single-point steering head

The cutting point (or teaching point) can be continually maintained at the same position regardless of the position on the C-axis and A-axis, which makes teaching. Thanks to the single-point steering head, the effective cutting range is equivalent to the X, Y and Z strokes whatever shape is being cut. The single-point steering head is most effective in cutting that requires a lot of motion on the posture axes.

On-line gap sensor(non-contact type)

Movie:On-line gap sensor

This is an capacitance-type sensor that measures the gap between the panel and the tip of the nozzle with high-speed follow-up. It gives unrivalled follow-up performance when moving curves with a small radius and improves machining stability. The three-layered nozzle ensures that the side walls of the panel do not confuse the sensor.

Joystick lever

The joystick lever, above the cutting head, improves operating convenience.

User’s voice"TLM"

from R. T. Corporation

We were anxious about troubles in the beginning after installation. But we could start right away because operability of this machine is excellent compared with that of previous one. With this machine, we set works during lunch time or after work, and do daily business operating unattended.
