The Ventis-3015AJ fiber laser cutting system from Amada is making its North American debut at FABTECH in Chicago this week.

Amada says the Ventis-3015AJ is the world’s first fiber laser cutting system with Locus Beam Control (LBC). LBC technology enables the cutting system to control the kerf width of the laser beam when processing stainless steel and aluminum.

LBC can freely manipulate the laser beam to create an infinite number of locus patterns and enhance cutting performance. In conventional fiber laser cutting systems, energy density reduces as material thickness increases, reducing efficiency. LBC Technology offers flexible beam pattern control matched to each application, while maintaining efficient cutting and high energy density. Amada says the Ventis-3015AJ achieves cutting speeds up to three times faster than a conventional 4kW fiber laser while producing superior edge quality.

Amada is at FABTECH Booth A2103.
