New CI Fiber Laser Delivers Enhanced Performance with Lower Production Costs

Cincinnati Incorporated (CI), a leading provider of built-to-order machine tools in North America, will showcase its new CL-960 fiber laser at this year’s FABTECH show and conference. Building upon the solid design and performance of the company’s CL-900 laser series, the CL-960 Fiber Laser introduces a clean new look with productivity enhancements.  Show attendees will also have an opportunity to witness the new laser’s air assist cutting capabilities.  In many instances air can be a cost-effective assist gas alternative to nitrogen or oxygen.

CL-960 Fiber Laser Head

Engineered for manufacturers requiring fiber laser precision and speed, the CL-960 processes thin material faster while cutting up to 3/4 inch thick steel.  Air assist cutting and reliable linear drive motors boost productivity while lowering production and maintenance costs. With its Human Machine Interface (HMI) and user-friendly touchscreen controls, the intuitive CL-960 allows operators of all levels to maximize the machine’s advanced laser cutting capabilities.

 Additional features include:

  • 6,000W Light Source
  • Dual Pallet Configuration
  • Fiber Resonator Technology
  • Flexible Glass Fiber Beam Delivery
  • 5'x10', 2Mx4M, 8’x20’ Table Sizes
  • Interfaces with Automation

CINCINNATI Product Manager, Todd Kirchoff comments:
“Today’s manufacturers are continually challenged to meet accelerated production schedules, rigid quality standards, and increase throughput; all while controlling costs.  As from the company’s beginning, CINCINNATI is responding to industry’s demands with innovative yet practical shop floor solutions.  In addition to high precision, the CL-960 Fiber Laser leverages air assist cutting technology. Substituting air as an assist gas in place of nitrogen has two key advantages; lower operating costs and higher cutting speeds. While others are relatively new to this approach we’ve been leading the way with air assist cutting for more than ten years. The advanced CL-960 is just another example of how CINCINNATI continues to set the pace in manufacturing technology.”
