Some talk as if the CO2 laser is a dinosaur. And if they’re referring to a traditional fast axial flow CO2 they may be right. But Mitsubishi’s patented cross flow CO2 is alive and well. It combines the thick to thin versatility of a fast axial flow with a fiber laser’s low cost of ownership. And the only place you’ll find this simplified CO2 resonator design is on a Mitsubishi.
The eX has all the attractions of its 5’ x 10’ predecessor—the LV —including easy access to the cutting table, plus new features like a high-speed gantry. With fast cutting on sheet metal and an unmatched edge on plate, you won’t find a more versatile laser than the eX. Available at 3.5kw, the best-selling 4.5kw and 6kw.
Mitsubishi’s VZ is the most popular short-run 3D laser on the market. The VZ-10 has a high-speed, zero-offset head perfect for trimming. The V-20 sports a narrow profile offset head for thin-to-thick versatility as well as welding. Both models have wide-open access to the table, key to their productivity.
Most large lasers are turtles when it comes to sheet metal. That would not describe the flying optic XL. Despite its 10’ x 20’ travel without reposition, the XL has a high-speed motion system delivering a consistent cut quality over the entire expanse. Available with 1” capacity shuttle tables, automation too.
With 80% of the world’s install base, Tanaka has long been synonymous with gantry-style lasers. It is sold and serviced by Mitsubishi in the U.S. and now available with a Mitsubishi resonator. If you cut big parts and need better than plasma accuracy, a Tanaka laser is for you.
Mitsubishi’s patented resonator is the heart of all of its CO2 lasers. The unique cross-flow design combines many of the advantages of both fiber and traditional fast axial flow CO2s. Simply put, it’s the nicest CO2 resonator out there. Available from 2kw to 6kw.
