A Fiber Laser Cutter for Job Shops

Trumpf’s BrightLine fiber technology delivers a quality cut edge with minimal burr
(shown on the bottom part).

Compared to solid-state laser cutters, CO2 lasers are generally faster for thick materials while offering better cut quality. On the other hand, solid-state lasers (fiber or disc) with greater beam power density and absorption characteristics are speedier and more energy-efficient when cutting thin sheet metal. However, at last year’s Fabtech show, I learned about new technology from Trumpf that enables fiber laser cutting machines to be just as effective processing thick materials as they are cutting thin sheet metal. Learn more.
