Cincinnati Inc.’s (CI) fiber lasers are available with high-performance light sources from nLIGHT. The new partnership combines nLIGHT’s advanced laser technology with CI’s laser cutting systems to provide job shops and OEMs with the ability to cut reflective “red” metals. The nLIGHT light sources are available on CI’s 900 series fiber lasers.
The 8-kW nLIGHT alta fiber lasers power an array of industrial cutting applications. Proprietary back reflection technology allows cutting of even the most reflective metals like polished stainless, aluminum, brass and copper at full power and stability. Reliable and designed to be serviced onsite, the nLIGHT alta family of fiber lasers delivers maximum uptime and withstands harsh environments.
“These light sources are a jump forward in fiber optic laser cutting technology,” said Troy Wilson, product manager for cutting products, Cincinnati Inc. “Red metal cutting is historically difficult due to reflection, which causes most systems to shut down. Systems with the nLIGHT technology are able to absorb the reflection and continue running with no error messages or operator intervention. This is a huge step forward for fiber optic laser cutting and is the latest evidence of CI’s commitment to advancing machine tool technology.”
