Fire and water

Fiber lasers and CNC fabricating: When a laser beam is in close proximity to the coolant required for a Swiss-style lathe, a collaboration in precision and productivity surprisingly ensues

Two In One

Manufacturers reap big benefits when a laser and a plasma cutting system come together on one machine

The Cloud Advantage

When fabricators leverage cloud-based technology, costs per part can be significantly reduced

Focusing on the Facts

Optics are essential in both CO2 and fiber laser systems, but the characteristics for each are inherently different
