Two New HyIntensity Fiber Laser Cutting Systems Now Available

Press release date: Jan 23, 2012

Hypertherm today announced the release of two new HyIntensity Fiber Laser systems-the two kilowatt HFL020 and the one kilowatt HFL010. These two new systems join a 1.5 kilowatt system unveiled in 2010 as the first fully-integrated fiber laser systems designed specifically for cutting applications, including marking and fine-feature cutting.

The powerful systems deliver a number of advantages to owners, including:

  • Performance on a wide range of applications and consistent cut quality across a number of material types including brass and copper and thicknesses up to 16mm (5/8") on mild steel.
  • Higher cut speeds, lower operating costs, and higher productivity than CO2 laser or plasma on material thicknesses below 6 mm (1/4").
  • Superior cut quality and tolerances for fine-feature cutting on materials from gauge to plate.
  • Easy integration and installation onto existing cutting tables, even tables that already have a plasma torch.

    All of the HyIntensity systems were developed and manufactured by Hypertherm in the United States; making Hypertherm the only company to offer both laser and plasma cutting expertise. Visitors can learn more by visiting
