Hypertherm, Hanover, N.H., has made available two new HyIntensity Fiber Laser systems: the two kilowatt HFL020 and the one kilowatt HFL010. These two new systems join a 1.5 kilowatt system unveiled in 2010 as the first fully-integrated fiber laser systems designed specifically for cutting applications, including marking and fine-feature cutting.
The powerful systems deliver a number of advantages to owners, including:
- Performance on a wide range of applications and consistent cut quality across a number of material types including brass and copper and thicknesses up to 16mm (5/8") on mild steel
- Higher cut speeds, lower operating costs, and higher productivity than CO2 laser or plasma on material thicknesses below 6 mm (1/4")
- Superior cut quality and tolerances for fine-feature cutting on materials from gauge to plate
- Easy integration and installation onto existing cutting tables, even tables that already have a plasma torch
