The best of two worlds
Moenchengladbach, october 2010
SATO presents SATRONIK_LFL FIBERcut – a fiber laser cutting system combined with a linear drive system.
The congenial combination for high-speed and precise cutting operation.
SATO is not only a specialist in innovations,
but also in modernizing and maintaining the
value of your machinery. In 2010, one of our
major customer in Germany has updated his
entire SATO machinery both mechanically
and electronically to ensure a second flame
It is important to have a reliable and partner
at your side. SATO is such a partner and we
set great store by intensive
communication with you,
let you take part in our
work, so as to improve
continuously and not least
to optimize your cutting
If you have any questions,
would like to make suggestions
or want to get
information on our products and cutting operations,
we are gladly prepared to assist you
and put our know-how and competence at
Let yourselves be convinced and rely on
SATO - for perfect cuts.
Machines with linear drives are a tradition with SATO. The advantage
offered by linear drives - the excellent running smoothness
- has an especially positive effect on the cut quality.
SATRONIK_WS, our water jet cutting system and SATRONIK_LDP for
the 3D plasma bevel unit are well-known machine concepts.

• SATO oxySCAN oxy fuel sensor control
• SATRONIK_ HDS 9500
• RETROFIT - Saving values
The fiber laser system is SATO‘s most recent innovation in cutting
technology. SATO is presenting SATRONIK_LFL FIBERcut - a machine
system combining once again two components - fiber laser and
linear drive - which add up to an impressing unit.
Flexibility for your requirements - safety included
LFL FIBERcut is a machine concept with partial housing. Unlike the
conventional completely housed fiber laser systems, the LFL design
offers a variety of flexible working widths ranging between 2.5 and
6.5 m and working lengths - attuned to your requirements, while
all safety requirements are, of course, met.
Fiber laser and linear drive – powerful, precise and
In comparison with other laser systems, the fiber laser offers a perceptibly
SATRONIK_LFL FIBERcut with its linear drive moves over the material
to be processed quickly and precisely - making almost no sound
and with a scarcely audible cutting noise. The cuts cannot be beaten
for precision and smoothness.

Another attractive benefit of the fiber laser system is that it requires
very little maintenance. The compact design and the easy
access to all of its components as well as the long useful life of the
fiber laser of SATRONIK_LFL FIBERcut facilitate maintenance work,
Convincing quality to meet highest demands
Let yourselves be convinced by the quality of cuts made by
our SATRONIK_LFL FIBERcut
We are at your disposal - for perfect cuts.

oxy fuel cutting components
oxySCAN Integrated scanning system
Moenchengladbach, september 2010
A capacitive integrated scanning sensor systems offering many advantages
Back to the roots - almost. SATO has its roots in oxy fuel cutting technology. We offer
convincing cutting components and machine concept in this area, too. Our striving for
continuous optimizing has induced our engineers and technicians to design oxySCAN.
oxySCAN is a capacitive scanning system for oxy fuel torches with an integrated sensor
system ensuring optimum control of the cutting process. Against the background of the
well-known problems posed by other oxy fuel torch scanning systems, SATO focused on
reliability and practicability when developing oxySCAN without leaving innovative technologies
aside, though. That is why we deliberately opted for the low-maintenance external
oxySCAN in operation
oxySCAN ensures dynamic and reliable scanning movements and the early detection even
of small slag residues. You can use almost the entire size of the plate to be cut as oxySCANis
not equipped with a scanning ring. Nozzles can be changed without tools and in no time
owing to a quick-fastening seal.
oxySCAN stands for reliability and ease of operation, for excellent cutting results and efficient

RETROFIT puts a new face to machine value
SATO has the experience
Retrofitting existing machines may often be
a good solution. Being a globally renowned
manufacturer of serial and tailor-made solutions
in the field of cutting systems, we
are able to analyze your existing cutting
system „from within“.
As wear parts are normally replaced at
regular intervals, the mechanical parts of
often still in a good condition. By replacing
outdated components and installing new
state-of-the-art components, existing machines
can be revamped.
Your benefit lies in the modernization of
the installation and the productivity increase
involved. Our retrofitting service
includes the modernization of the entire
cutting system to give it a „second productive
Thanks to our excellent infrastructure
and experienced staff we are able to ensure
you the quality and safety in everyday production you require. Our comprehensive retrofitting services
preserve and update the functional capability of your system to the state of the art in cutting technology.
SATO does not only retrofit SATO systems
Benefit from our extensive know-how in mechanical engineering. The experienced SATO Retrofit-Team
modernizes, of course, also cutting systems of other makes and converts them into modern production
SATRONIK_HDS 9500 with two 3D plasma bevel units and two oxy fuel torches
Moenchengladbach / Zeithain, september 2010
State-of-the-art 3D plasma bevel technology for Salzgitter Stahlandel in Zeithain for multiple plate processing
Salzgitter relies on us - for perfect cuts.
Salzgitter Stahlhandel AG has been delivered a complete
SATRONIK_HDS 9500 cutting system in autumn 2010.
This system - comprising two 3D plasma bevel units and
two oxy fuel torches as well as a 3010 TOPAZ CNC unit
- is a product of cutting edge technology. Highly efficient
multiple plate processing is possible both with plasma
bevel cutting and oxy fuel cutting.
Slim, dynamic, efficient
The 3D plasma bevel units with fully rotational axes -
without rotation limitation - distinguish themselves not
only by a focus on the essentials and easy maneuverability,
but also by the love of details and sophisticated technical
solutions. They are suited for beveling and trimming
structural and special steels with angles of up to 50° - depending
of the material used - to prepare them for welding
CNC 3010 TOPAZ
Owing to the TOPAZ control unit, this cutting system can
meet almost every requirement. Apart from its excellent
ease of use, TOPAZ is characterized by logical and modern
menu navigation in an attractive design and comes in
a touch screen version. TOPAZ combines ease of operation
and attractive design.
