Fast cutting of thin and medium thickness sheets

Super - fast cutting of thin and medium thickness sheets up to approximately 6mm (.240”) thick (depending on the material and the laser power). Fastline has 2 primary functions:

• FlyCut - Fly cutting involves the piercing of relatively thin material at cutting speed, as opposed to stopping, piercing, and then moving. The head moves between contours arranged in an array at a constant speed without stopping to pierce. Cutting takes place by switching on the laser beam above the cutting lines and switching it off again between contours. If your part has an appropriate repetitive pattern, Flycut can significantly reduce the throughput time of the part, and can be used up to a thickness of 6 mm.

• FastCut – Fastcut involves “piercing on the fly” and significantly reduces the piercing time. Rather than stationary piercing, the system moves at an appropriate speed to reduce the piercing time, and then resumes at full speed as soon as possible. This option is used to cut sheets with a thickness of up to 12mm. This option improves the cutting efficiency of thin and medium thickness sheets by up to 30%.
