Hypertherm announced that it will feature its new HyIntensity Fiber Laser HFL015 system at Fabtech Nov. 2-4 in Atlanta. The new fiber laser cutting systems contains all components in one package, including the power source, cutting head, gas supply, operator interface consoles, motion controls and software.
“Our fiber laser system is unique in
that all of the components are engineered and designed to work together.
Cutting application specialists defined and validated all of the cutting
parameters so our partners and their customers can easily use laser for a broad
range of applications including marking, efficient processing of gauge and
fractional materials, and fine feature cutting,” said Doug Shuda, Hypertherm’s
fiber laser product manager. “Hypertherm partners and their customers no longer
have to choose between plasma and laser. They can choose both, applying the
best cutting technology for each particular job.”
officials also said that fiber laser technology offers several advantages over CO2 laser
systems. According to the company, it requires little maintenance, is more
energy efficient, and takes up less space.
