The new models address thicker materials or increase processing speed for a given application. Amada Miyachi America now offers an LF Series fibre laser in power levels ranging from 250 watts to 1000 watts in the same form factor and with the same features.

With the precise control needed for small component welding and fine precision cutting of metals, the LF Series fibre lasers are ideal for micro spot welding, seam welding and precision cutting. They are a good choice for medical spring attachment and medical component assembly, as well as battery tab welding.

The LF Series offers continuous wave and modulated fibre laser technology with both single mode and multimode options. Featuring a large touchscreen pendant that enables clear visibility of process schedule parameters, the LF Series has an intuitive interface that offers users quick and easy programming. All models in the series enable spot sizes down to 10 microns for thin metal welding, with welding penetration depth beyond 0.16-inch (4 millimeters) in metals. Excellent power stability provides extremely reliable results.

The new models incorporate all the most recent enhancements to the LF Series, including a new chiller updated to accommodate laser engines with up to 1 kilowatt of average power. This additional capacity improves the LF Series’ performance in hot environments. Several other chiller design changes make routine maintenance easier. In addition, the new models features improved industrial design, adding safety and serviceability features. The back panel has been modified for improved air flow to extract heat from the chiller and the front door and frame have been updated for improved appearance and functionality.
