Benefits

  • Straight and angled cuts with weld bevels to 45 degrees
  • Contoured cuts with weld bevels, tabs and slots
  • Drill and tap holes up to ½” in diameter
  • Any shape drawn on a CAD system
  • Any combination of the above
  • Plus, laser engraving for part identification
  • Single chucking for lengths up to 26'
  • Tighter tolerances and better fit-up for robotic welding
  • Eliminate need for tooling and fixturing
  • Combine the following into one process:
    • Cutting
    • Milling
    • Drilling
    • Tapping
    • Coping
    • Hand grinding
    • Beveling
    • Deburring

Material

Using the power of a 4000 watt laser it can cut material as long as 26' in length into pieces as short as one inch. The FabriGear 300 works on steel, stainless and aluminum equally well cutting up to:

  • 3/4" thick steel
  • 1/2" thick stainless steel
  • 3/8" aluminum

And, with a robot loading the material, the Fabrigear handles:

  • Round tube over 10" in diameter
  • Square and rectangle tube up to 8"
  • I-beam, channel and structural shapes that fit into an 8" square

Fabricators

  • Cut parts from shapes and tube including I-beam, channel, T-bar, angle, rectangular tube and pipe
  • Bevel or weld chamfer parts
  • Drill, end-cut and contour cut tube, pipe or structural parts
  • Eliminate manual cutting and measuring operations
  • Reduce multiple operations and setups

Machinists

  • Cut parts up to 3/4" thick
  • Drill and tap holes up to 1/2" near a rounded edge or on multiple sides
  • Eliminate fixturing for complex or multi-staged parts
  • Reduce multiple operations and setups
  • Precision cut parts that are affected by vibrations when machined
  • Position cut-outs accurately up to 26' apart in a single chucking
  • Precise saddle cuts
  • Tab and Slot design can reduce/eliminate the need for fixturing and tooling
  • Precut weld bevels for cleaner, more consistent end product
  • Precision cuts provide stronger welds using less material
  • Space frames and complex tube cuts are now possible without grinding
