Laser Cutting System: Laser-Jet 2512 FL 2000, Part No. 140873

Flexible, functional, and space-saving - maximum cutting efficiency in stainless steel, aluminum, copper alloys, and other high-reflectivity metals

Equipped with fiber lasers with various beam powers. Lowest operating cost due to highest efficiency.

Due to the fiber laser's shorter wavelength, the cutting process is performed within a sealed enclosure. The enclosure automatically closes upon start of a cutting job and opens at the end of the cutting operation to allow direct removal of cut parts.

Laser-Jet Cutting Systems feature a transverse layout:

Machine control can be connected to the internet. This will allow remote control functions and remote diagnostics and monitoring of the system state.
