Manufacturers’ part programming needs vary from one shop and industry segment to the next. So their machine tool CNC needs are different as well. Truly effective controls allow for the programming of complex to simple part geometries programed either in the front office or on the shop floor at the machine tool. G-code (EIA/ISO) and conversational types of part programming make this possible.

Laser maintenance – the third but equally important factor in laser cutting machine choice

The increasing popularity of fiber laser cutting machines is being driven by three key criteria. Very often the focus is on the first two, namely running costs specifically electricity, and secondly the increased productivity with cutting times around 5-6 times faster when working with a thin sheet.

However the third key criteria, maintenance should be considered of equal importance. To understand what is involved, we will look at the differences between servicing a CO2 laser and a fiber laser machine.
