Laser cuts steels, aluminum in varying thicknesses
The Convergent CV4000 CO2 laser from Prima Electro delivers high-speed cutting of thin and thick metals and nonmetals. It cuts mild steel up to 0.87 in. thick, stainless steel up to 0.47 in. thick, and aluminum up to 0.39 in. thick (using a 10-in. focal length lens).
The laser's cut width is independent of cutting direction. The energy distribution within the beam is suitable for minimizing heat input to the workpiece in a variety of thicknesses, from thin-gauge sheet and tubing to plate and pipe.
Housed in a single, compact cabinet, the laser integrates easily with laser machines. No additional cabling is needed with other lasers’ resonators and power supplies.
