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.
