Fiber laser system increases thin-sheet processing speeds
LVD has introduced the Electra FL high-speed fiber laser system. Powered by a solid-state, doped-fiber laser source, the system processes traditional sheet metal materials such as mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, as well as copper and brass.
The laser light's increased absorption into the material helps provide processing speeds up to 50 percent faster than CO2 laser sources in thin sheet metal, according to the manufacturer. The Touch™-L control employs a 19-in. touchscreen and GUI to guide the user.
