Norton BlazeX F970 Fiber and Quick-Change Discs, the next generation of Blaze®, enable faster rust removal, and enhanced cleaning and detailing processes for better finishes. An improved micro-fracturing grain which consistently exposes sharper grain edges, results in a better cut rate, and longer disc life when compared to blended ceramic alumina discs. BlazeX F970 Fiber and Quick-Change Discs enhance operator control in stock removal, deburring, blending and other applications.
Electric has introduced the Viking 3350 XG PAPR (powered air-purifying

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.
expert Pierson Cheng, industry manager, automotive, at Trumpf North

laser-cutting cell for your operations, and tips on how to avoid burrs,
optimize throughput and more.
Superior Abrasives, LLC has introduced Alpha-Kut quick-change discs, the company’s most aggressive coated material in quick-change form. The discs quickly remove burrs, sharp edges, slag and other undesirable materials with the workpiece shaped in a single step, thus reducing changeover time and costs.
WEBER PT is the perfect deburring machine for lasered, punched and
nibbled parts. It handles deburring, rounding, descaling and surface
grinding of thin sheets and heavy plates. Up to four grinding stations
allow for all machining variations. Improved accessibility for
maintenance; modular design; and optional simultaneous top/bottom
machining are just some of the advantages of the WEBER PT.

Aronson Ransome offers its newest CNC fiber laser cutting machine, the
FiberPro, reportedly offering robust capabilities along with Flashcut
Pro Controller software that enables efficient cutting of a variety of
materials, including brass, copper, mild and stainless steel, and
introduces the FastLoad DR2000 robotic machine-loading cell,
pre-engineered to meet the most common part-loading needs so that it's
ready for delivery and installation in as soon as eight weeks.
Cut 3D parts after they’ve been formed. Bent tubes, hydroformed components, tubular assemblies, deep drawn parts, flat or stamped plates can be trim and cut with maximum efficiency and excellent cut quality every time. The LT-Free replaces traditional machining operations and allows you to get the finished part in a single work cycle.
