The TF450

Technifor, a division of the Gravotech Group, has introduced its 50W fibre laser, the TF450. This compact, high-performance fibre laser solution is designed for direct part marking and has the ability to integrate into a production line and mark twice as fast as the 30W version. The machine has also been tested and approved for the cutting of thin metal sheets up to 3mm thick.
