Fiber Optic Laser Cutting Solutions

Fiber optic laser cutters utilize amplified light channeled through a fiber optic cable. The light is then straightened and delivered by a hyper-focused lens on the material. Fiber optic laser cutting provides precision cutting for a wide range of materials in some of the most demanding industrial contexts.

What are the Benefits of CNC Fiber Laser Cutting?

Fiber optic laser cutting offers superior precision and cutting speed compared to traditional cutting methods. Its high power output and beam quality significantly reduce the need for secondary finishing processes, helping increase efficiency. CNC fiber laser cutting is also exceptionally versatile, able to cut through a wide range of materials in complex dimensions. Additional advantages of fiber laser cutting include:

  • High-quality cutting: The constant beam transmission from fiber laser cutters provides a much more consistent and high-quality cut compared to CO2 laser generators
  • High efficiency: Fiber laser cutters are more efficient compared to CO2 laser cutters and YAG laser cutters, offering a much higher photoelectric conversion rate
  • Flexible working positions: Our optical fiber laser has a lightweight and movable working position, increasing versatility for production
  • Cost-effective: Fiber laser cutting's efficiency helps keep production costs low

What Materials Can Be Cut Using Fiber Laser Cutting?

Fiber optic laser cutting machines are powerful enough to cut sheet metal up to 0.866" thick (maximum thickness varies by material). At Tempco, we use our CNC fiber laser cutting capabilities to cut an array of standard and specialty materials, including:

Tempco's LCG3015AJ Amada Fiber Laser Cutting System

At Tempco, metal fabrication is our passion. We work with advanced industrial equipment to manufacture high-quality metal products and parts, including our Amada industrial fiber optic laser cutter. This machine is four times faster than conventional laser systems, featuring a material feed tower with automatic material load/unload capabilities that enable 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 needed parts sooner. Advanced features of this model include:

  • Helical Rack & Pinion Drives – These powerful drives allow higher torque motors to achieve smoother and quicker acceleration.
  • Automatic Gas Selection Assistance – This feature allows the machine to automatically choose the proper gas for the material being machined without operator intervention.
  • High-Speed Laser Head – A fast-sensing processor allows increased speed and enhanced height-sensing control.
  • Cartridge Style Lens Holder – The head also features a cartridge-assisted lens holder for quick setups between different materials.
  • Touchscreen Controls – Easy-to-operate touchscreen allows efficient network access and retrieves programs generated offline.

Why Choose Tempco for Your CNC Fiber Laser Cutting Needs?

Precision Cuts for Large and Small Pieces in Complex Dimensions

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 input digital part designs directly, 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 Cutting for Stainless Steel, Brass, Titanium, and More

The LCG3015AJ utilizes Amada's patented fiber laser technology, allowing a wide range of material types and thicknesses to be processed quickly and efficiently. This 9000-watt model can cut copper, brass, and titanium and processes common materials four times faster than competitors. The LCG3015AJ laser cutting fabrications also utilize fewer diode laser modules to achieve the desired power. This advantage provides improved efficiency and simplification for the overall design of the fiber engine.

Eco-Friendly Metal Laser Cutter

At Tempco, our laser system uses approximately one-third of the energy required by a "traditional" 4000-watt CO2 laser and just a quarter of the power of a 6000-watt CO2 laser. Unlike CO2 laser technology, industrial fiber optic lasers require no gases to generate the laser beam, eliminating potentially harmful emissions. Fiber optic laser cutting is among the most environmentally friendly metal fabrication processes available.
