ETG introduces new Durma fibre laser cutting machineNow available from the Wellesbourne-based Engineering Technology Group (ETG) is the new Durma HD-FO fibre laser cutting machine which offers industry-leading productivity, cut-quality and integrated automation solutions.

As the latest addition to the line-up of Durma machines at the new Fabrication Division at ETG, the new machine has low running costs and features a quick-opening top cover and easy access to the cutting area with a compact bridge design that will appeal to UK manufacturers requiring a fibre laser with a compact footprint. The energy-efficient Durma HD-FO laser is a ‘user-friendly machine that integrates automated work processes that will save time and create efficiencies in any business’.

THe quick-opening door has been designed especially for customers with factory layout and space availability issues. Sheet loading and unloading are extremely easy in cases where no shuttle table is needed and while a manual cutting table is supplied as standard, customers can select a pneumatic shuttle table option.

From a specification perspective, the Durma HD-FO laser has a working area of 3,048x 1,530 x 125mm in the X, Y and Z axes with a maximum sheet capacity of 575kg. The Durma machine also offers class-leading dynamics with X, Y and Z-axis travel of 90m/min and synchronised acceleration of 14m/s2 with an incredible positional accuracy and repeatability of 0.05mm. A Bosch Rexroth CNC control system and user-friendly 19in interface combine to simplify and enhance programming and setting up.

Meanwhile, its Durma Precitec Lightcutter laser head presents a combination of power and precision that enhances cut quality and edge finishes with its automatic focus that further enhances ease of use. This durable and powerful laser source is available with a range of options that include the YLR1000, YLS2000, YLR3000 and the YLS4000 which offer power from 1 to 4kW for cutting mild steel up to 20mm thick as well as stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass and many other material types.
