Mitsubishi Laser has added its M800 control technology to the Advanced 800-series eX-F fiber laser machine. The laser control includes a 19" tablet-style touchscreen, enabling users to swipe, pinch and tap to view data. It features a customizable home page and status bar to access data, meaning less time spent pressing various buttons to perform processes.

Additionally, the laser series control has a processing speed ranging to 100 m/min. and includes an expanded cutting condition library with increased flexibility. The system provides improvements on hole circularity and process times on small, geometrically intensive parts.

In line with Industry 4.0 requirements, the processing, consumption and service data available with this control ensures transparency in all production stages. The navigation interface provides smooth job operation for all operator expertise levels, enabling production jobs to be completed quickly and accurately, according to the company.

Other benefits include improved integration with Remote360, expanded maintenance and help screens, and larger storage for more program files.
