FO4020NT 6 kw Laser - An Ideal Solution for Thicker Material
The FO4020NT 6000 watt laser is designed for manufacturer's who want to process something other than just sheet metal. An ideal solution for thicker material (generally up to 1.25" mild steel and .750"
stainless steel) the 6000 watt FO can provide exceptional edge quality and faster processing times than other laser systems or alternative processing methods. The FO4020NT has a table capacity of 78" x 160". Some of the key features include shuttle tables, automatic focal and assist gas control, and the automatic nozzle changing device. The FO4020NT is also available with the 4000 watt resonator.
