Laser cutting pluses from Ficep

Leading supplier of quality structural steel and plate processing equipment, Ficep UK, has introduced Cutlite Penta’s state-of-the-art ‘Plus’ laser system for metalcutting with resonators up to 30kW in power to the UK market.

Ficep is now the exclusive UK agent for the Cutlite Penta Plus lasers systems. With a working area of up to 15m by 3m and offering processing of thick capacity stainless steel and mild steel up to 50mm, the Cutlite Penta Plus is a powerful option for applications involving heavy engineering.

The laser combines high-performance levels, structural robustness, and increased efficiency. Its linear motor drive provides highly responsive dynamics, enabling excellent productivity even on extremely complex geometries, while its low energy consumption makes it an effective solution in productive and environmental terms.

Handling quality is guaranteed by what are claimed to be the finest linear motors available on the market which, along with the fibre laser source, achieve high levels of accuracy in cutting both carbon and stainless steels. Its ease-of-use and high processing speed also increase productivity and at the same time ensure highly optimised, repeatable and dependable results.

The smooth dynamics of the cutter head delivers cuts with low pressures, resulting in a considerable saving in manufacturing costs. Its Evo 3 cutting head is equipped with a contact-free capacitive sensor and its optional bevel head can rotate up to 45⁰ in both cutting directions. It is also supplied with an automatic nozzle changer.

Chris Berriman, Ficep UK sales director says: “We are delighted to become Cutlite Penta’s exclusive agent for the Plus and heavy-duty range of laser systems and to bring this high-performance laser to the UK market. It complements our range of cutting systems and allows us to meet the needs of metal processors who require a system which can cut thick capacity steel at a greater speed, with high levels of accuracy.

“One of the laser’s many strengths is its ability to focus power into a very small area making it ideal for accurate, high-quality metalcutting. The Cutlite Penta Plus is the go-to laser cutting option when heavy engineering requires a quality finish and when fast processing speed is vital. We’re excited to bring it to market.” 

Cutlite Penta is renowned as a leading designer and developer of high-tech and high-performance fibre laser systems for metalcutting. Its range of machines is reliable, innovative and user-friendly, even on the most difficult and challenging operations.
