This entry-level LaserLife model LCW from Industrial Laser Services has provided a introduction to laser profiling for many plastics fabricators.
LaserLife model LCW 100w CO2 sealed laser is ample for acrylic, ABS, MDF, plywood, rubber and cardboard, most to 10mm thick.
The fully enclosed system makes it an ideal model for clean environments.
Although the cutting area is a modest 1300mm x 900mm, the feed-through facility enables a full-sized sheet (1250mm wide) to be processed without the need to pre-cut it to fit the work area.
The LaserLife model LCD features the same clean, self-contained design and feed-through facility as the LCW. LaserLife model LCW’s 200w of laser power boosts the thickness capability and the cutting speeds to nearly double that of 100w.
The 1250mm x 1250mm cutting area enables larger parts to be cut, and it’s optional collimated beam and follower head enable this model to efficiently produce die boards for cardboard carton manufacturers.
The newly released LaserLife model LCR boasts 400w of CO2 laser power in an open design, providing easy access for the operator.
The auto-focus head and easy-to-use programming software make it the easiest laser machine to master, even by those with no prior laser experience.
This more versatile model extends the cutting range to thin metals such as stainless and mild steel.
Fume extraction is from both under and above the table.
Cutting area is 1800mm x 1300mm.
For larger-scale users, the range of used LaserLab machines, both Contours and Profiles, offer full sheet capacity and the ability to cut a wider range of materials and thicknesses, spanning both metals and non-metals.
The choice of laser power and degree of refurbishment can be matched to the budget and the intended application.
The customer support and after sales service on used machine range is the same expected with a new machine, a must for any new entrant into the world of laser cutting.
