Coherent introduces 30kW cutting head
Coherent has introduced its next-generation flat sheet cutting laser head series with ultrahigh-power ratings up to 30kW.
The BIMO-FSC3 cutting heads come in three product variations, each optimised for one of the following applications: ultrahigh laser power delivery of up to 30kW; efficient ring-mode laser beam management; and reliable operation in harsh environments.
“The new BIMO-FSC3 cutting head series is based on a field-proven design that we have systematically enhanced over decades to continue to enable the growing and evolving sheet-metal cutting industry,” said Dr. Karlheinz Gulden, Senior Vice President, Laser Components and Subsystems Business Unit. “That cumulative experience is behind the product’s unique and unmatched combination of performance, reliability, serviceability, and user-friendly operation.”
The BIMO-FSC3-Z-HP handles up to 30kW of laser power and features height-sensing capabilities and a large depth of focus, which combined achieve exceptional cutting speeds while maintaining high quality and consistency across very large sheets of metal.
The BIMO-FSC3-L handles up to 20kW of laser power and features a large numerical aperture that is ideal for ring-shaped laser beams and their associated applications.
The BIMO-FSC3-Z handles up to 12kW of laser power and is IP-65 certified to withstand the harshest environments.
