MC Machinery’s fiber laser offering has expanded to include the SR-F series from Mitsubishi. Available in 2 and 3 kW, the entry-level machine comes with a two-dimensional fiber laser processing system, fiber laser resonator, processing head and safety cover. It also includes a Mitsubishi 700-series control with 64-bit NC and a 15" touch screen. Motion Cut features the beam on/off time and axial movement simultaneously to eliminate the need for the axes to stop. The Eco Mode feature is said to reduce cost during standby by as much as 70 percent. The machine’s power control system provides power stability of ±1 percent. Automatic focusing enables easy and consistent focusing. The magnetic damage reduction function protects the head and eliminates the need for nozzle centering in the event of a crash. The MC Remote 360 feature also provides real-time data to help increase productivity, improve efficiency and reduce downtime.
