Salvagnini New L5 Fiber Laser CutterClick image to enlargeExhibitor: Salvagnini    Booth: B3125

The new L5 machine incorporates a patented, rotary motor driven Compass head positioner for speed, accuracy, reliability, energy conservation and performance, claims the company.

Running costs are one third of a 4kW CO2 laser with chiller and it offers zero maintenance (no mirrors to align and no laser gas required). It can handle many configurations for feeding blanks, picking up and stacking finished parts and unloading skeletons. Features a new all-electric pallet changer with the process piece passing beneath the work table.
