LVD will feature its new 8kW Electra FL 3015 fibre laser. The ultra-high-speed Electra cuts a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials as fast as the thermal process allows.

The 8kW laser has an improved wall plug efficiency of up to 40 per cent. A linear drive motor achieves high cutting dynamics and rapid acceleration for high part output. An advanced cutting head provides automated adjustment of the focus position and diameter to optimise cut quality in both thin and thick materials. A rigid frame design ensures reliable cutting performance at top cutting speeds. LVD’s Touch-L touchscreen control and icon-driven user interface make Electra easy to use and operate.

The Electra at Blechexpo will feature a Compact Tower system for automated loading, unloading and storage of raw material and finished parts.
