Machine of the Month - September / October 2018
- Category: Laser Cutting

The Titan Express mid-size laser cutting machine from Laser Photonics Corp. combines a small footprint with the cut quality and performance of a full-size industrial laser cutter. The mid-size machine is equipped with a high-power, energy-efficient fiber laser and an advanced direct-drive motion control platform – making it good for cutting highly reflective materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper.
• The laser cutting system consumes less than 20 percent of the power required by conventional CO2 laser systems and has a third the operating costs of other laser machines.
• Fully software-controlled geometry alignment eliminates the need for special installation requirements and requires no optical system alignment, laser service or laser replacement parts.
• The Direct-drive Motion System (DDMS) technology, a maintenance-free magnetic-based motion platform that is an order of magnitude lower in resistance to any other mechanical motion system.
• Fully sealed encoders permanently eliminate conditions for laser placement errors and material jamming accidents associated with optical encoders that occasionally break or lose location accuracy due to accumulated debris obscuring the optical location functionality.
