Five-Axis Fiber Laser Processing Ideal for Large Parts
New from Prima Power Laserdyne, the Laserdyne 890 multi-axis laser processing system, featuring a powerful and efficient fiber laser backed by BeamDirector beam-steering technology and the S94P control, loaded with a full portfolio of Smart Techniques operating capabilities.

AMADA Introduces the World’s First Fiber Laser Cutting System with Locus Beam Control (LBC)
AMADA’s LBC Technology creates infinite locus patterns—ensuring the optimum beam shape for each specific cutting application. This results in the highest quality cuts in both stainless and mild steel and the best edge quality in aluminum with virtually no dross. The VENTIS 3015 AJ leverages a high-brightness fiber laser oscillator to maintain optimum quality of the high-energy density laser beam. Unique cutting capabilities and exceptional speed enable the 4kW VENTIS to easily rival fiber lasers utilizing much higher wattage at a considerably lower operating cost.
