GF AgieCharmilles’ LASER 4000 5Ax is the largest laser-texturing machine on the market, claims the company. With its completely new mechanical design, this five-axis machine adds unique and various textures to oversized molds for a wide range of components for the automotive industry, including bumpers, instrument panels, door panels, central consoles, airbag covers, and other parts. It operates in such a way that a large component—as big as 3 x 4 m (10 x 13 ft) with a mass of 18 ton (16 t)—remains stationary on the floor while the machine’s axes move around it, texturing on all part sides if needed. Such movement is possible because the machine’s fourth and fifth axes are attached to the Z-axis head.
