We use a new Eagle 12kW + 6G fibre laser cutter. Fibre laser is particularly effective in cutting stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper. In addition, fibre laser can be used to make markings, which the water jet cutting method cannot.
The fibre laser method is capable of cutting, for example:
Sheet maximum size is 1500mm x 3000mm.
As already stated, fibre laser is an exceptionally efficient and fast cutting method. However, in addition to its production efficiency, it is also very accurate.
Fibre laser speed and accuracy in performing extremely complicated cut patterns is almost confusing. In the video below, you can see how the conveyor table accelerates at 6G between cuts. For example, the Saturn V launcher used in the Apollo program accelerated at best by “only” 4G.
Fibre laser is a significant development leap compared to the conventional CO₂ laser cutting. In the fibre laser, the cutting beam is created in the fibre from which it is guided to the cutting head of the machine. Thus, the method produces twice the amount of power at the same voltage. In addition, the energy consumption of the fibre laser is significantly lower than that of a CO₂ laser.
