How does a Fibre Laser work?

A fiber laser operates by concentrating a high-powered laser source directly onto metals beneath the focusing lens within the cutting head. This intense energy beam is then activated, causing the material to absorb it, resulting in the generation of extremely high temperatures and the melting (vaporization) of the materials.

Our metal lasers have the capability to effortlessly cut through metal materials, with thicknesses of up to 25 mm, depending on the machine’s configuration.

Fiber laser technology is designed for high-volume, high-speed processing of sheet and tube metals. However, we also cater to the smaller end of the market with our Compact Fiber Laser metal cutting machines. These are an excellent choice for space-conscious or lower production facilities that require a table size of up to 1300 x 900 mm.

A fiber laser machine can effectively process various materials, including carbon steel, mild steel, stainless steel, as well as other metals like brass and copper. However, the suitability of these materials depends on the power source and specific power levels. We offer a range of laser source options for our machines, allowing us to accommodate various budgets. Additionally, each machine comes equipped with features typically found on machines that are much more expensive.

These features include essential safety covers, which are essential in any production environment, and dual table exchange systems. The latter allows for the loading of materials for the next run while the machine is in production, significantly enhancing operator efficiency and production output.

Each metal-cutting laser machine is operated through a Windows-based system, providing full control over the machine and production files. Operators can make on-the-fly changes to files directly at the machine.

We provide comprehensive support for all our systems in the UK, going beyond the standard warranty. When you acquire a machine from MTL, you gain access to our highly acclaimed  technical support team for the entire lifespan of your machine.

As the leading choice in the UK for top-quality industrial metal cutting fiber lasers, MTL is your ideal machinery partner to meet all your needs. With our extensive expertise in industrial lasers and a wide range of cost-effective cutting systems, we offer a comprehensive solution.

Our range of Fiber Laser Cutting Machines undergoes thorough testing and assembly at our premises in Kidderminster, West Midlands, adhering to rigorous standards. Each fiber laser is versatile, catering to a wide array of industry applications and products.

MTL’s Fiber Lasers are competitively priced, making them affordable without compromising on quality. They are professionally installed by our team of highly experienced engineers across the nation. We have successfully installed numerous metal-cutting fiber laser machines in diverse sectors.  Achieving precision metal cutting has never been more accessible or cost-effective.

All our Fiber Lasers are equipped with Windows PC-based systems, providing you with complete control over your machine’s operation. Whether you require  a new HSG fibre laser, or new Dener fibre laser , we have the right cutting machine to suit your business needs.

Is it time to consider bringing your fiber laser cutting process in-house? Fiber laser cutting technology has become increasingly affordable for businesses, allowing for greater control over productivity and quality.

Fiber Laser Cutting Machines are now within reach for a wider range of industries and businesses than ever before. In the past, this technology was beyond the means of small engineering and fabrication firms. However, due to advances in manufacturing and declining parts costs, these high-quality machines are now more affordable and accessible than ever.

Do you install and commission the fibre laser?

We have our very own dedicated team of installation engineers, capable of installing fibre lasers throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe. Our team of professional engineers will commission your fibre laser alongside operational training for operators, ensuring the safe operation of your new investment.

Why are all of your fibre laser cutters within a safety enclosure?

You may find some UK suppliers happy to sell you a machine that does not come with an enclosure, however as these are powerful class 4 laser cutting systems we firmly believe that your safety is paramount when it comes to operating a fibre laser cutter.

These high-powered laser cutters should be shrouded by the enclosure to protect customers from the real risk of laser exposure. On top of laser exposure, you also have to look at the potential issue of metal particulates caused by vapourisation, as the laser is being operated, being allowed to freely contaminate the surrounding workplace. Investing in a good extraction system like our Cyclone extraction model is always good practice.

Any Fibre Laser Cutter that has no safety enclosure will not conform to UKCA/CE safety regulations.

Do you offer fibre laser cutter demonstrations?

Yes, please get in touch with one of the team either via our quick quotation form or call us on 0121 541 1444 to book in your own, personalised demonstration on one of our Titan Fibre Lasers. If you can’t make it to our HQ for a demonstration, you are also more than welcome to send files and material for testing, we can then video the process for you and send your samples back to you.
