Side loading fiber laser cutting machine

The Ferric-Ermaksan Fibermak SL-GForce is a fiber laser machine well suited to fabrication shops with limited floor space. The machine is available from Ermaksan's Canadian distributor, Ferric Machinery.
The builder says the machine offers a 15 per cent productivity increase on average per hour because of the higher acceleration of 2.5 G on servo motorized models.
The machine fetures a fiber optic cable with a QBH connector that delivers the laser beam to the cutting head. An automatic focusing using sets the laser beam to the desired focus point, while a controller quipped with an active touch screen helps operators easily manage the process. A speed adjustment potentiometer allows for axis velocity adjustments, even during cutting.
The fiber laser is equipped with a chiller unit, linear motors and a colimation unit. An extraction unit works automatically when cutting starts.
