Laser Photonics has added the Titan Express to its line of large-format fiber laser cutting systems. The system is designed to give small to mid-size manufacturers agility and responsiveness.

The system is equipped with a high-power, energy-efficient fiber laser and a direct-drive motion control platform. Its low power consumption reduces operating costs, and its software-controlled geometry alignment does not require special installation. The system requires no optical system alignment, laser service or laser replacement parts, so it is almost maintenance-free. Its oversized class-one laser viewing windows can be opened to easily load and unload materials onto the 4 × 4-ft. table.

The fiber laser is suited for cutting highly reflective metals. The 1- to 2-kW fiber laser is said to make precise and intricate cuts with clean edges on aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel, brass and copper.
