F21: Comparative Metal Cutting Solutions

Breakout Session | Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm


CO2 and Fiber Laser System Market Adoption and Applications: Finding New Ways to Employ These Versatile Systems

CO2 and fiber laser technology are the core laser technologies in the cutting market. This paper will explore the unique value of each and the diverse applications where these two lasers shine in the marketplace. This session will both clarify the rationale for coexistence of these technologies in the market today and help business owners understand both what they should expect from these technologies and how to get more from them.

Plasma Cutting Systems

Traditional steel fabrication is a manual process using several powered conventional processing machines. Finishing methods remain predominately drawing interpretation/chalk line layouts and torch cutting which is prone to cutting errors resulting in wasted materials and labor. Increased productivity through automation has allowed steel fabricators to grow through lean manufacturing, eliminate material handling, drastically reduce labor cost per ton of fabricating steel and increase output. There are many automation options especially for fabricators not embracing automation.
