The nLight alta Compact 2500 fiber laser provides productivity and reliability in the smallest footprint, saving valuable shop floor space without sacrificing performance. With up to 2.5 kW of continuous cutting power, this compact machine enables rapid piercing, efficient high-speed cutting of thin sheets and excellent cut edge quality for metals up to 10 mm thick.
Built on nLight’s innovative fiber and diode technology, the nLight alta Compact 2500 fiber laser delivers maximum uptime with onsite serviceability to keep you working, making it the ideal choice for high-volume metal processing.
Productivity and versatility: The nLight alta Compact 2500 fiber laser cuts up to 30 percent faster than legacy technologies with operating costs up to seven times lower than that of CO2 lasers. Users are able to cut a complete range of metals, including reflective alloys like copper and brass – something simply not possible with other laser sources.
Back-reflection technology: When piercing or cutting reflective metals, intense laser light can be reflected off the work surface back into the laser source. This back-reflected energy has damaged many other lasers. Every nLight fiber laser features hardware that isolates back-reflected energy to prevent damage. This lets you process any metal with one tool and avoid costly repairs.
Onsite serviceability: Unexpected downtime can cause costly chaos in a shop. While service events are not expected, nLight fiber lasers are designed with serviceability in mind, getting users back up and running fast. Onboard diagnostics and a modular design enable quick troubleshooting and rapid repairs right on the shop floor.
Durability and reliability: nLight fiber lasers have been deployed in thousands of environments around the globe. Engineered for success in hot, humid climates and harsh manufacturing environments, they give users robust, reliable laser sources no matter the working conditions.
