MTC installs waterjet guided laser

The five-axis system allows engineers to cut, drill or machine complex shapes without the drawbacks associated with traditional laser machining such as heat build up or tapers

The new machine was unveiled at the Bodor Laser Innovation and Research Center in Jinan. (Image: Bodor Laser)

Chinese laser manufacturer unveils 40kW cutting machine

The machine has a maximum cutting thickness of 200mm, is able to cut 20mm carbon steel at a rate of 6m/min and 30mm carbon steel at 2.4m/min.

The LS4 integrates two laser sources, a 50W green nanosecond and a dual wavelength (near-infrared and green) 10W femtosecond source. (Image: Lasea)
