Rhino Fibre Laser (RFL) lasers are a series of state-of-the-art flying optics laser cutting machines for the sheet metal industry. We are proud to offer solutions for all budgets and expectations covering a wide range of different sheet sizes and cutting capacities. From a small cost-effective and manually but easily operated simple laser cutting machine to a full automatic high-power linear-drive manufacturing cell with integrated loading and unloading. RFL laser systems can be equipped with the optimal laser technology for every range of material and thickness, and all are driven by high-performance motion systems.
Rhino High Performance Fiber Laser Cutting Machine
Fiber lasers are all solid state and have no mechanical parts that could suffer from wear or need adjustment. The laser source is therefore truly maintenance free and has an expected lifetime of greater than 100,000 hours.
Where CO2 lasers are excited by an electrical discharge in a laser gas medium, fiber lasers are powered by diode lasers and require no gas for their operation.
The fiber laser light is brought from the laser source to the cutting head by a flexible glass fiber. There are no mirrors in the beam delivery that require maintenance and adjustment. The light does not travel through air, making a flushing or over-pressurizing with clean air unnecessary.
Not only will fiber lasers cut faster than CO2 lasers with a similar output power, their wall-plug efficiency of 30% is more than double. There is no stand-by electrical consumption and also the cooling requirements are only a fraction of that of a CO2 laser.
