Sheet metal laser machine
May 2018 – new sheet metal laser cutting system installed.
Machine with 3 kw power fiber resonator, 3 x 1.5 meter working area, and with automatic loading and unloading. Able to cut steel, stainless steel and aluminum alloys. The machine fully responds to the new Industry 4.0 paradigm
It is a significant increase in capacity for the cutting department, not only for potential quantity but also for quality. In fact, by joining the other system (with Co2 resonator) we can choose which technology to apply to maximize the benefits for our customers.
In fact, with fiber technology it is possible to make holes with a diameter much smaller than the thickness of the material. This is due to the size of the laser beam about 90% smaller than the laser beam generated by a CO2 source. Technical leap also allowed by the beam transmission technique: optical fiber against reflective mirrors.
On the other hand, starting from medium thicknesses (about 10mm), the cutting quality and speed of a classic resonator still has advantages. However, it is probable that in the future the technique will develop in favor of the less energy-intensive fiber source, closing the technological gap in its favor.
