Fabertec FL4

1530, 2030, 2040, 2060

Introducing the FABERTEC FL4, the ultimate solution for laser cutting subcontractors who demand unparalleled performance and reliability around the clock. With the FL4, you can process laser-cut parts non-stop, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, ensuring maximum productivity and efficiency for your business.

Comparable to models from well-known brands that typically cost between £300k-800k, the FL4 offers exceptional value starting from just £59k + VAT for the 2kW laser source configuration. Despite its affordable price point, the FL4 does not compromise on quality or capabilities.

Designed to operate as economically as possible, the FL4 boasts a robust construction and advanced features that enable it to handle a wide range of applications with precision and speed. From intricate designs to heavy-duty materials, the FL4 delivers consistent and reliable results, allowing you to maximize the value of your investment.

Maximizing Uptime, Efficiency, and Maintenance-Free Operations

FL4 maximizes uptime with an integrated shuttle table system, which allows one table to be loaded/unloaded while cutting on the other table. Table changeover is completed in just 45 seconds. Sheet edge recognition will adjust all your vectors to unaligned metal sheet on slats. Automatic height adjustment, laser head collision prevention and frog leap, will keep you cutting all day long without any stopovers. Micro Joint will allow you to cut tiny pieces, leaving a tab between elements to remove larger sections, instead of fishing out for small parts in floor drawer. 

Fly cutting, circle centering, frame border and other are adding to efficiency in your operations   Our fibre laser cutting machines are built to require little to no maintenance, and our laser sources may operate for up to 100,000 hours without calibration or expensive replacements. Only inexpensive spares, like lenses, lens covers, and nozzles, are needed. For businesses that need to create thousands of pieces in just a few days, fibre lasers for metal cutting are basically the only option.

The FL4 with a standard minimum table size of 1500 x 3000mm and a dual-table conveyor system, FL4 simplifies operations. Cut on one table while the second retracts, enabling easy sheet loading via forklift, magnetic crane, or clamp crane.

LASER SOURCE - THE HEART OF FIBER LASER CUTTING MACHINES

In all fiber laser cutting machines the one of the most important parts which allows for smooth and accurate cuts is laser source. At FABERTEC we offer German made IPG source or more affordable MAX source. If your workshop is cutting mostly aluminium/stainless steel then wise choice is to go for IPG as it has longer established "back light protection" to prevent burning laser source diodes internally when for example operator will not pierce materials well. But if you would like to go more affordable route and cut mostly mild steel then MAX source is also a very good choice. Both comes with warranty and our UK based engineers and support.

Enhanced Safety and User-Friendly Operation

With a strong focus on safety, FL4 is fully enclosed with CCTV cameras inside and outside showing you 1st and 2nd pallet table. The rear open table is surrounded by light barriers, to prevent any damage to operator or loader when tables are exchanging. To improve cutting efficiency barriers only work during table movement, so loader can clean all finished elements and load new sheet, without engaging emergency stop by walking between light barriers. 

Simple and intuitive the CAD/CAM software is provided as a standard. In the past, we had a situation where an operator who was previously cutting on Amada or Trumpf machines or even plasma cutters was able to efficiently operate Fabertec machines after literally 15 minutes of training.   

Affordable prices to allow you to speed up your workshop processes.

Delivery

We provide free of charge delivery of the FL4 machine. On the Client side you will need forklift 5t-7t with 2000-2400mm forks (dependable on model) to unload and position in workshop. After delivery our friendly and patient engineers will visit your workshop to finalise installation, commission and provide training.  

Don't worry if on first day you may not be very fluent with all operations (most operators cut on their machines in about 1h). We will provide you with our WhatsApp number where engineers will help if stuck or doubt.

LASER HEAD - THE "FOCUS" OF THE MACHINE

Dust Protection by Design

Multiple protective lenses are easily accessible to replace. Focusing and Collimating lenses are accessible without the need to disassemble the laser head.

Smart and Safe Processing

Monitor the gas pressure of first 2 lower protective lenses to provide you with early warning in case of drop in pressure.

Collision Screws

Fiber laser head provides an extra layer of protection against collisions and environmental hazards.

Protective Lenses Monitoring System

Upgraded controller algorithm integrated with sensors to prevent in most cases damage to lenses caused by pollution.

FL4 Controller Features


Up to 6KW

  • Micro Joint – If you are cutting hundreds of small elements and not fancy digging them out from drawers – leaving a skeleton sheet with tiny tabs to remove, most of them, in one go. 
  • Scan to Import – Just scan your drawings to create vectors ready for cutting. 
From 6kW to 15kW
  • Fast Piercing – Very effective for thinner sheets.
  • Deslag – Improve quality on piercing by burning out slag. Especially important for thick plates.
  • 5 Stage Piercing – Even more stages for very thick plates at the end of your laser source capability.
  • Corner Technique – Improve quality on the sharp corners
  • Quick Cutoff – Quickly cut off by pressing one button sheet edge on X or Y axis.

Some of the important features of the Fabertec FL4 Fiber Laser

By using branded servo motors from Fuji or Yaskawa our fiber lasers can achieve speeds of up to 80m/min.

We don’t settle for anything less than top fiber laser source supplier – IPG

All of our FL2 machines have integrated controller and laser head which can be upgraded in no time from 1kW – 6kW. Thicker sheets in a year time? Just invest in more.

We stock all parts needed to get you up and running in no time. Also we stock rentals laser sources in case yours need to be send to warranty repair.

For rapid movements and direction changes. The lighter the gantry the quicker your fiber laser will work. Also less stress on structural rails and guides.
The FL2 features a smart compact electrical cabinet, even for the smallest of workshops, the wheels provide easy movability.
The FL2 offers a large screen display, not only does it look the part this comes in handy when nesting parts & Drawing.
With this style laser bed it reduces the time of looking for cut parts that have dropped down into the scrap bins below as it catches even the smallest of parts.
The FL2 has a 3 way solenoid valve to ensure smooth and fast gas changes.
The FL2 features its own cad/cam package this allows you to draw and nest parts without flicking through different software’s!
They will slow down and then shut down SERVOS close to the end of the axis. Situations happen when operator is moving the gantry too quick by controller and of course machine will follow the instruction. Without those sensors the gantry will hit end buffers and stop with the errors which create a strain on the structure, motors, guide. SENSORS allows machine to KNOW that it is at the end of axis and will shut down MOTORS preventing damage. This is almost not present in cheaper, budget machines from suppliers who never go to Chinese Factory to supervise production, add improvements and sign off shipments.
The accuracy of the FL2 is unbelievable this is what you would expect from a fiber laser the linear bearings and moving mechanical parts of this machine play a huge part in this!!
It's Always handy to be able to operate the machine remotely the FL2 offers this as standard
The FL2 has a great loading facility at the front of the machine, the steel ball bearings allow for heavy sheets of material to be loaded with ease.  
The E-chains on the Fabertec lasers are a very good quality as standard this is to ensure that the cables/pipes are secure when the machine is moving at high speeds.
The scrap trays on the FL2 are perfect for easy access and emptying, they slide with ease even when they are full and at there heaviest.
