How the Laser Beam Makes the Difference

Very recently,LAMIERA 2019 the Trade Fair entirely dedicated to Metal Sheet Processing – was held in Milan:

Cutting, Bending, Welding, Finishing and Components

My cousin Fabrizio and I paid it a visit. To bring our knowledge of the ever-changing world of sheet metal up to date.
Inside the fair I was able to see how the number of laser cutting manufacturers has increased quite considerably in recent times.
What we perceived, is that the new manufacturers, who are mostly Chinese, by buying sources, structures and drives, have been able to produce machines with lower costs but with much higher power, to offer very good performance.
But this is not enough.
Therefore, the tendency of manufacturers is to offer machines with very high consumption to increase cutting thickness and speed.
We saw samples of parts cut with thicknesses between 50 – 60 mm.

Is it really useful to cut such high thicknesses with this type of technology?

A lot of power, as high as the costs to sustain it and the energy impact it involves.
On the other hand, there are manufacturers who, rather than assembling parts from different manufacturers, have concentrated their business on studying and developing their own technologies, thus managing to optimise consumption, emissions and quality.

 

This is why our Sustainable Choice was to use ENSIS Fibre LASER Technology

ENSIS Fibre LASER Technology

This technology makes it possible to modulate the cutting beam in a specific way, which is different to all other types of fibre cut on the market,
currently making this the most innovative solution
It is able to offer cutting speeds like Fibre with cut surface finishes like CO2.
 
Listen to the Video Interview that Fabrizio gave to AMADA, you’ll learn why we chose ENSIS Fibre Technology to cut Your parts

Here are the advantages for you:
