The ripple effect of high-speed laser cutting.

The laser has evolved to become the heartbeat of precision sheet metal fabrication, and in recent years it has gotten a lot faster. Fiber and disk lasers cut through thin sheet at unprecedented speeds, while at the same time CO2 lasers have progressed also to churn out more parts while consuming less power and laser gas.

The industry is going through a bit of a renaissance within the laser cutting work envelope. After years of steadily increasing speeds and powers, new laser technologies are challenging perceptions. Now fiber and disk lasers have progressed to the point where productive plate cutting with them isn’t a far-out concept. More than ever, fabricators have a menu of highly efficient and reliable cutting options.
