FiberMINI

Laser Mechanisms is the recognised world leader in the design and manufacture of laser processing heads, beam delivery components and articulated arm systems. Their products are used in every type of industrial application including cutting, welding, drilling, scribing, surface treatment and others. Over the years the company has introduced many innovations to enhance the performance, safety, capability, ease of use and cost effectiveness of laser processing.

The FiberMINI is their entry level product, technical highlights include:

  • Rated for lasers of up to 4kW power
  • Available with or without capacitive height sensing
  • Temperature sensors protect optics and minimise the risk of damage caused by overheating
  • 13mm of lens movement to set the focal position
  • Quick and tool-free access to the sealed cover glass
  • Flexible design to provide a wide range of spot sizes
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Nozzle cooling for use with highly reflective materials
  • Purge air input and sealed optics to prevent the ingress of contaminants
  • Models available for all common fiber connector types

The FiberMINI is a simple yet flexible design that allows the user to configure a compact, lightweight processing head to their specific fiber laser application. Available in straight and right-angle versions, the head is capable of cutting a wide range of materials. An optional viewing system with CCD camera permits real time through-the-lens observation of the focal position. This head is also available in various welding configurations (FiberMINI Weld) with focal lengths of up to 400mm. An effective air-knife protects the head from welding fumes and spatter, and thereby extends the life of the cover glass.

FiberMINI delivers user-friendly operation and reliable performance at an attractive price.
