Fiber Laser Handles Flat Sheet and TubeAugust 25, 2019
Amada’s Ensis 3015 RI fiber laser with rotary index features a 3-kW fiber laser, with its index located on one of three shuttle pallets, allowing for simple switching from flat sheet cutting to tube or pipe cutting in as little as 2 min. The machine’s unique design expands process-range capabilities to cut a significantly wider variety of shaped materials that also includes square, rectangle, C-channel and angle-iron shapes.Amada’s Ensis technology utilizes a variable-beam control unit that automatically adjusts the laser beam’s properties to precisely cut an array of thin-to-thick materials without a lens change. Optimal beam control also enables the Ensis RI to process thin materials at speeds to four times faster than a CO2 laser, according to Amada officials.
