FiberLight-Flex Cutting Head

1μm SHEET METAL CUTTING

FiberLight Logo

The FiberLight FLEX series of cutting heads is the innovative follow up to the II-VI FiberLight product line. The FiberLight FLEX is the comprehensive solution to processing a broad range of materials and thicknesses. The FLEX has a variable focal length collimator that provides the user the ability to change spot size by a factor of 2x. In addition to the standard 10mm of manual focus position adjustment, the FLEX’s Variable Radius Mirror (VRM) provides the user with an additional 15mm of dynamic focus adjustment. These advanced features make the FLEX the complete tool for 1μm sheet metal cutting.
