Thin sheet metal can be cut particularly quickly with Fiber lasers. The short wavelength of 1.07 µm is excellently absorbed by metals and thus achieves outstanding efficiency. The energy input into the metal is higher than with CO2 lasers, so the cutting speed is faster.
Burr-free cuts with low surface roughness are characteristic of Cross-Flow lasers. Because of the high surface quality, time-consuming and costly reworking is reduced significantly. Cross-Flow lasers have been in use in industry for many decades now. They are extremely robust, durable and low on maintenance.
