What are fiber laser engraving and cutting machines?
Fiber lasers generate and deliver laser light through an inherently flexible medium, which allows for easy delivery to the focus and target location. They can support kilowatt levels of continuous power output due to the fiber's high surface area to volume ratio, which allows for efficient cooling. The waveguide properties of the fiber reduce thermal distortion of the optical path, producing a high-quality, diffraction-limited optical beam.
Fiber lasers are compact compared to gas or solid state lasers of comparable power. They have a lower cost of ownership. They are reliable and exhibit high temperature and vibration stability and long service life. High peak power and nanosecond pulses improve marking and etching. The added power and better beam quality provide cleaner cutting edges and fast speeds.
