variMODE: Brass cutting comparison
variMODE is a new feature designed to overcome the limitations of previous lasers, giving a more flexible approach to laser processing. Using a novel, all-in-fiber technique the output beam quality and mode profile can be selected in real time to optimise the processing for each application.
In this video we look at the improved processing speed and productivity of a redPOWER QUBE Fiber Laser using the enhanced variMODE Low BPP mode when cutting 4mm Brass, compared to using a High BPP setting. Without variMODE, a laser job-shop would select a laser with a High BPP to improve cutting for thicker section metal. However, as the video shows this would limit the productivity for thin metals. variMODE removes this limitation.
