Cincinnati introduces compact fibre laser

Share this on social media:

US firm Cincinnati has launched the CLi, a compact, high-quality fibre laser.

The machine ensures users no longer need to count on contract manufacturing partners and mysterious lead times if they need laser cutting done.

The lowercase i in CLi stands for 'introductory', meaning it’s an ideal starting laser that has all the functions necessary for shops that want to make parts rather than outsource.

'If cost-effectiveness is the goal, the recommendation used to be that you should pick up a used CO2 laser,' said Troy Wilson, product manager of the firm's CNC Table Products. 'But with the CLi, you can get a new fibre laser for the price of a used CO2 laser. Capabilities and reliability are a whole lot higher.'

The new machine offers user friendliness and easy operability thanks to its HMI control and dual screen Windows-based interface. The 5 x 5ft table is packed into an economical 10 x 11ft footprint, meaning it can fit in most places on a shop floor.

'The CLi lets OEMs that don’t need a lot of sheet metal control their own destinies,' Wilson remarked. 'You get your own 5 x 5ft that builds parts when you need them so you don’t have to wait weeks or months for those same parts.'
