Can the Slat Cleaner be used on different brands laser cutting machines?
Sure. The Slat Cleaner can be used on most manufacturers laser cutter, such as Mazak, Bystronic, Messer, Mitsubishi, Trumpf, Amada or others. Available for both CO2 and fiber laser metal cutting machine. So, even in your workshop there are different brands, different models laser cutting machines, that doesn't matter. In another words, you can regard it as Trumpf laser Slat cleaner, Mazak Laser slat cleaner, Bystronic laser slat cleaner, Amada laser slat cleaner, Messer laser slat cleaner and so on.
Question 2: What good changes will the Slat Cleaner bring compared with slag removal by hand or simple manual tool, such as hammer?
In one word, much more convenient you will feel by using the Slat Cleaner.
1. Operated by just one person within 1 hours VS many people with many hours; At least 90% workhours saved.
2. Clean the slag thoroughly VS not tydy and may ruin & bend the grates; Extend the life of slats and save the raw materials by times.
3. No need to stop production when running on one flatbed laser cutter with pallet changer. Even you can clean any area you select. No need to remove slats. A lot of workhours are saved.
4.Quality of cut parts improves as there is reduced slag build-up that causes the laser to bounce back and mar the bottom surface of the cut materia
Question 3: Is it a economic way to use the Slat Cleaner?
As far as cost concerned, well, let's calculate it roughly in addition to quality improvement.
Cost of slats replacement for one standard laser cutter as below:
1. Raw steel material: 9 Sheets used for a complete slat replacement (48"x 96"x.125) x 2 tables. 60 USD per sheet, about 540 USD;
2. Many people to run the machine to manufacture the slats ( 3 hours) & remove the slat & put slats back (1.5 hours), averange 85 USD per hour/team, 382.50 USD;
3. Revenue loss of the machine during downtime: 100 USD per hour, then 400 USD;
In total amount for slats replacement once, 1372.50 USD. If 4 times one year to replace the slats, then cost will be 5490 USD.
That's only loss of ONE laser cutting machine. In fact, you can use one Slat Cleaner for tow or three laser cutting machines.

Question 5: Is your slat cleaner an ideal Trumpf Trutool TSC 100 alternative ?
Yes and much better. You can look it as one TRUMPF Trutool TSC 100 alternative with more powerful functions and much lower price by at least 20%.
Trutool TSC 100 slat cleaner turned up in 2011. At that time, main laser cutting machines are CO2 type. Slag on one CO2 type laser cutter is much loose and much easier to remove then that on one Fiber laser cutting machine. The power of Trutool TSC 100 is only 1300W. With the development of laser cutting machines, more and more powerful fiber laser cutting machines are used due to much higher effectiveness. And slag becomes more and more tough and stubborn. So you can see it's hard for Trutool TSC 100 to remove slag on fiber type laser cutters, especially over 3KW fiber laser. For our tool, the standard power is 2400W. And special raw material and process of cutting knives make the tool much longer service life.
In fact, it's easy to compare them by using them in your factory. You can see the cleaning result obviously.
Question 6: How do you clean your laser slats on your laser cutting machine ?
What's the most common response to what you can clean your laser slats on your laser cutting machine? Especially maybe you have different brands laser cutting machines in your factory, such as Trumpf, Amada, Bystronic, Mazak, HAN*S and so on. Most people will say that they replace all the laser slats on their laser cutting machine.
Not only do we get the question but also the common misconception that replacing laser slats is the only way. We also know that the lasers come preprogrammed to cut new slats.Yes you will always need to change your slats in the end . LISEN slat cleaner is enabling you to extend the life of your slats and reduce your time changing the slats. Labour and Material time should be focused on more profitable areas like production. The average 3x1.5 mtr pallet takes about 2 hours to change all 52 slats, normally also a 2 man job. You can clean your slats in approximately 30 mins for a deep clean or 15 minutes if your regular and often.
If you have done the math on replacement then you will know that its a very time consuming exercise. If you cut thicker materials and stainless steel even more so.
Yes I have also seen every engineer's attempt at making a tool that is had made for cleaning the slats( its their invention), when pushed to have a race on 6 fully slagged beds - every operator concedes that a machine doing the job is better and quicker, cleaner and less physical effort. Just get one LISEN slat cleaner and try your laser slat cleaner, you will never try to go back again for sure.
To manufacturer the best slat cleaner in the world!
