Fonon Corporation has unveiled the newest addition to its line of industrial mid-size CNC laser metal cutting, marking and engraving systems: the SBM-1200FL

Available standard with Fonon’s advanced laser technology, the SBM-1200FL is offered in a wide range of customizable laser wattages, up to 1kW—all in a four by four form factor. 

It eliminates external mirrors and delicate equipment by delivering the laser via progressive fiber optics, which enable the beam to achieve cutting speeds of three to four times that of other cutting systems of comparable wattage.

The SBM-1200FL can process a wide range of industrial materials and is particularly effective at cutting highly-reflective metals, including:

  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Titanium
  • Stainless steel
  • Nickel
  • Bronze

Programmable by any machinist in native G-code, the SBM-1200FL is driven by a PC-based CNC closed-loop motion control unit.

As with other recent releases in Fonon’s Laser Photonics family, the SBM-1200FL is equipped standard with Direct Drive Motion System technology. A magnetic, linear drive system effectively levitates the cutting head smoothly and quickly across the working surface area.

Fonon’s laser cutting technology is scheduled to be included as optional equipment in all cutting, marking and engraving products available under the Laser Photonics brand during Q2 2016.

The SBM-1200FL is available now.
