The FB500 combines versatility and performance to allow production on a vast number of materials. It is proving to be a big success, especially in small businesses and education.
Cutting speeds of 600 mm/sec (36m/min) and 2G acceleration provided by closed loop servo motors combined with the ApS-Ethos control software make the FB500 the complete production unit. Our rastering software for creating images or pictures onto surfaces such as wood or plastics is included.
We use a sealed CO2 air cooled laser, which is a certified Class 1 laser product, being interlocked and fully enclosed while cutting. This machine is available with a 30watt laser or a 50watt.
The FB500 can cut a wide variety of materials like acrylic, mdf, ply, cardboard and paper. You can also engrave and raster images onto surfaces such as wood and plastic. The control of cutting is so accurate you can engrave onto paper. The air irrigation system attached to the cutting head sends a stream of air or inert gas to the point of cut, this enables you to achieve a consistently clean cut.
The laser is controlled by the cutting software that is included with this machine. The material manager allows you to store a wide range of materials, so you can instantly change from one material to another. Adjustments may be made to the cutting speed and the power so a fine, clean, accurate depth of cut may be achieved.
This compact machine is designed to wheel through a 810mm doorway. When you purchase a laser cutting machine from GS UK Ltd we automatically include delivery, installation and training. Visit our site in Nottingham for a demonstration of our laser cutting machines.
