LVD releases entry-level Lynx FL fibre laser

LVD has expanded its fibre laser cutting systems product line with the introduction of the Lynx FL, a system that is designed to process a variety of material types and thicknesses within a modest budget.

Powered by an IPG 2 kW fibre laser source, the Lynx FL can process materials that include mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and brass. Increased beam absorption of the 1 micron wavelength laser beam by the material provides processing speeds up to three times faster than CO2 laser sources in thin sheet metal, says LVD.

Of compact design, Lynx maximises uptime with an integrated shuttle table system that allows one table to be loaded while the machine is cutting on the other table. Table change time is 35 seconds.

The machine features an integrated Siemens IU CNC control and drive package.
