Compact Fiber Laser Ideal for Bringing Cutting InhouseOctober 15, 2021
Cincinnati Inc. (CI) has unveiled the CLi, a high-quality cost-effective fiber laser with a compact footprint. The lowercase “I” in CLi stands for “introductory,” meaning it’s an ideal starting laser that has all the functions necessary for shops that want to make parts rather than outsource, according to CI officials.
The CLi offers simple operability thanks to its HMI control and dual-screen Windows-based interface. The 5 by 5-ft. table is packed into a 10 by 11-ft. footprint, meaning that it can fit just about anywhere on a shop floor.
“If cost-effectiveness is the goal, the recommendation used to be that you should pick up a used CO2 laser,” says Troy Wilson, CNC table products product manager for CI. “But with the CLi, you can get a new fiber laser for the price of a used CO2, with higher capabilities and reliability. The CLi lets OEMs that don’t need a lot of sheet metal to control their own destinies. They get their own 5 by 5-ft. laser table that builds parts when needed without waiting weeks or months for outsourced parts.”
