𝐃𝐢𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰…… that there are two main types of laser machines, carbon dioxide and fibre. Indeed CO2 lasers are cheaper, but high quality fibre lasers are much more efficient and act with more precision, fibre lasers also use a lot less energy in the process lowering your carbon footprint.
The fibre laser was invented by a gentleman called Elias Snitzer in 1963, but the fibre laser required another 20 years of development before it was ready as one of the first commercial devices to appear on the market in the late 1980s.
Laser cutting really took off in 1990s. More and more high-powered lasers were on the market, with the ability to cut in both small and large volumes. Fibre lasers were introduced to the commercial market in the 2000s with the first fibre lasers for cutting reflective metals being introduced in 2008. Using different laser beam methods it allowed cutting metals like copper, brass, aluminium and galvanised steel.
