AMADA America Inc.’s Brevis 1212 AJ 3-kW laser cutting system cost-effectively handles everything from prototyping to full-scale production in a 4-ft.-by-4-ft. machine footprint. For quick and easy material loading, doors on both sides of the machine slide open. Additionally, cutting pallets are easily pulled out to allow efficient material loading. For further efficiency, 4-ft.-by-8-ft. sheets can be loaded to process two 4-ft.-by-4-ft. workpieces sequentially. The system leverages a flexible Z-axis to achieve precise laser cutting on 3-D materials. This high-speed processing on formed parts, such as boxes or covers with a height of up to 7.8 in.
