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.
Technifor has expanded its laser offering by integrating a new technology: the TG400 green laser. The new solution permits marking of materials that do not interact with other classic laser equipment
