MC Machinery Systems says the new eX-F Series fiber laser combines the best of both worlds: the top notch construction of the popular eX Series CO2 lasers and the power and reliability of a Mitsubishi's finest fiber resonator. The 6kw machine features new ZOOM Head Technology built in to the magnetic head that provides faster processing and the capability to pierce one-inch thick plates.
In testing, the eX-F has shown significant advantages over the conventional Mitsubishi LV-45CF-R CO2 laser in terms of performance and operating cost. Medium- and thick-plate processing times were decreased by 44 percent. Also, non-process times are cut in half with simultaneous nozzle cleaning, height sensor calibration, nozzle changing and gas purge.
Operating costs are reduced 70-80 percent when compared to conventional CO2 and even more when available ECO Mode is turned on. Powerful controls with standard features like automatic focusing, two-action processing simple nesting and program editing make it easy for the operator.
