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.

Due to its 50W power, the TF450 beam vaporises material, creating a completely unalterable marking. This laser interaction offers new opportunities for deeper engravings, especially in harder materials such as metals, a particularly useful feature for markings which must remain legible after applying a coat of paint or surface treatment.
