At booths D06 and F06 Amada will be exhibiting its Ensis series of laser cutting machines, featuring the firm's AJ fibre laser engine with innovative beam control technology. Using just 2kW or 3kW of power, the machine is able to process thin to thick materials with a single lens. 

Due to higher power requirements increasing in demand, a 6kW and 9kW variant has also been added to the Ensis series.
