Koike Aronson has introduced Fibergraph, a gantry style cutting machine equipped with fibr laser technology.
The machines deliver excellent cut quality on mild steel while using just a third of the electricity of a CO2 laser at the same cutting speeds, claims the company. Two sizes are available: the 2kw model cuts mild steel in thicknesses of 1/8 in. (3.2 mm) to 3/4 in. (19 mm); the 5kw model cuts thicknesses up to 1 in. (25 mm). Standard safety features include a torch cover and machine enclosure. The shielding wall around the machine can be customized to the user’s requirementsThe
Koike Aronson says the machines have been in use in Japan since 2013, and they have proven themselves to be dependable and less costly to operate than CO2 lasers. More than 20 metal cutting operations are currently using these systems worldwide. Koike Aronson now brings the advantages of the machine to North America.
