FC Laser increases capacity with new 10kW laser

Precision laser cutting specialist FC Laser has installed a new 10kW Bystronic fibre optic laser centre.

The machine is capable of cutting materials as thick as 30mm with high accuracy. Two more identical machines are to be ordered over the coming months.

At the same time, the company – which celebrated its fifth birthday in June 2017 – has taken on undergraduate Swarrendeep Samra on a 12-month internship. His main responsibility will be to get the absolute best productivity levels out of the Swiss-made machine and the others that will follow.

Mr Samra will also look at overall process improvements across the company and at problem-solving in different areas. With an in-house specialist capable of maximising what the fibre optic lasers can achieve, FC Laser can move even further ahead of its nearest competitor.

The new 10kW laser is 40% more energy efficient than its predecessor, so FC Laser will be able to boost its productivity while reducing its energy costs. The machine is as easy to operate as using a mobile phone – with just a few swipes across a touch screen, the operator can sort job lists, assign cutting parameters, define the automation mode and start the cutting process.

FC Laser’s general manager Steve Connolly said: “Speed, accuracy, quality and maximum uptime – the new Bystronic machine is literally at the cutting edge of laser technology and it is so easy to use.”

He adds: “When the other two machines are installed we will be in our best position yet to meet the requirements and demands of our expanding customer base.”
