    Journey to the Future of Laser Cutting - The Innovative Tidy 16Bar Series

    Lazer cutting machines are platforms used for cutting, drilling or processing materials with high precision and speed. These machines have a wide range of applications in almost every industry.

    Laser cutting machines commonly used in many businesses typically operate with nitrogen, and the cost of nitrogen plays a significant role in laser cutting operations. To avoid this cost, compressed air can be preferred instead of nitrogen. Compressed air technology can be used at 100% efficiency in machines where nitrogen is used. The use of compressed air in sheet metal processing and laser cutting systems is becoming increasingly widespread. However, there are some points to be noted:

    • The appropriate pressure should be used according to the material and thickness to be cut. For example, cutting metal requires higher pressures, while plastic or wooden materials can be cut with lower pressures.

    • Using higher pressure speeds up the cutting process and helps achieve smooth, even surfaces.

    • Compressed air cools the area where the laser beam is focused during laser cutting. This also prevents the material from burning or melting, thus enhancing cutting quality.

    • Compressed air removes the waste generated during cutting from the material surface and keeps the process area clean.

    Standard screw compressors can typically operate up to 13 bar pressure.

    Tidy 16Bar released by Dalgakıran, has specially designed rotors to achieve 16 bar pressure with single-stage compression, eliminating the need for boosters generally required to reach high pressures.

    Compressed air generated by compressors contains moisture and oil. It is essential for the air used in laser cutting machines to be dry and oil-free; otherwise, the laser cutting lenses may be damaged. For this purpose, a system consisting of compressor and complementary equipments is required. Additionally, a dew point value between -40°C and -30°C must be achieved at the compressor outlet. We achieve this value with a chemical dryer. Furthermore, the particle density in the air should be 0,01 mg/m3. Our DA chemical dryers reduce the dew point value to -40°C. Additionally, our Carbolescer filters reduce the particle density to levels as low as 0,001 mg/m3. To ensure the efficient operation of the compressed air system, extra particle, moisture, and oil filters are used to minimize the risk of oil reaching the laser cutting system.


    The Tidy 16Bar Series is specially designed for laser cutting operations. High pressure and precise control ensure exceptional performance and results in your laser cutting processes.

    The key advantages of the Tidy 16Bar Series are the following:
