Fiber Optic Laser Cutting Capabilities
To provide our customers with highly accurate, precision-cut metal parts, Tempco Manufacturing Company utilizes a state-of-the-art Amada FOL3015AJ fiber optic laser system. Though fiber optic laser cutting is gradually becoming more common in parts production, we’ve been using fiber optic lasers for years, and have the experience and know-how to use this advanced technology to maximum effect. No other manufacturer, with or without laser cutting capabilities, can provide higher quality laser cut metal parts than Tempco.
Fast Laser Cutting with Minimal Waste
Our fiber optic laser cutter is up to four times faster than conventional laser systems. It includes a material feed tower with an automatic material load/unload feature that enables fully-automated “lights out” operation. High-speed positioning (up to 13,300 ipm traverse speeds) provides unmatched productivity. Shorter processing times equate to faster turnarounds, so you get the parts you need sooner. Watch the video below to see just how quickly our laser cutter can turn out complex parts.
With a 5’ x 10’ work table, our Amada laser cutter has ample room for large parts or for nesting multiple jobs on a single piece of sheet metal. Advanced software allows us to directly input digital part designs, and a 3-axis linear motor drive system provides absolute accuracy, even at the highest cutting speeds. The system’s high-powered, 4000 watt laser creates exceptional edge quality. These factors combine to minimize or eliminate scrap and inaccurately-cut parts, reducing material costs.
Fiber Optic Materials
Tempco’s fiber optic laser cutter is powerful enough to cut sheet metal up to 0.866” thick (maximum thickness varies by material). We can laser cut an array of standard and specialty materials, including:
- Stainless steel
- Mild steel
Fiber Optic Lasers are Energy Efficient & Environmentally Safe
Our fiber optic laser system uses approximately one-third the amount of energy required by a “traditional” 4000 watt CO2 laser, and just a quarter of the power of a 6000 watt CO2 laser. And, unlike CO2 laser technology, fiber optic lasers require no gases to generate the laser beam, thereby eliminating potentially harmful emissions. Fiber optic laser cutting is among the most environmentally-friendly metal fabrication processes available.
