The FCL Series from Vytek is built upon 25+ years of experience building production laser and CNC equipment.

The FiberCab with Linear Motors (FCL) Series is the result of a multi-year focused effort to design and build an ultra-high accuracy high speed laser cutting platform specifically for small to micro part processing. The FCL was designed and optimized for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals with the ability to process materials as thin as .0002”/.005mm and the ability to resolve part geometries to as small as .0005”/.012mm.

The FCL platform incorporates an ALL ironless linear motors mounted to a thermally stable GRANITE base. The drive system is capable of extremely high accelerations while maintaining the most demanding accuracies. Combined with our latest generation of controls and user interface the FCL series is among the highest throughput systems on the market regardless of size.

MACHINES

Pneumatic Clamps

Our Modular Adjustable Table design is unique in the industry which incorporates a pneumatic hold down clamping system and eliminates the need for the need for support slats while securely holding the smallest materials in place. The table system is fully adjustable for material widths as small as 2”/50mm and eliminates contact on the back side of the material and the damage caused by supports. This revolutionary approach to material support also allows for multiple work zones with the addition of up to 3 pairs of clamp sets.

Control Interface

The FCL series is built around a rugged integrated machine interface which features a full graphic display and allows total machine and program control right at the machine console. The operator has full control of all critical job-related parameters allowing on the fly job edits while monitoring machine performance. Complete job statistics as well as remote support from Vytek are all standard.

Drop Through Table

The FCL series table system also features a drop through well design that also doubles as the fume/dust extraction plenum. Access to material drops is easy with a convenient front door access and a fully removable drawer for easy unloading.

Laser Source

The FCL series can be equipped with a variety of laser sources in both single and multi-mode configurations in both air and water-cooled formats. The series also offers Quasi-CW (QCW) laser sources with pulse energies exceeding 6kW. The FCL22 platform is available with up to 1.5kW in CW laser sources and up to 600/6000 watts in QCW laser sources. The FCL32 is available with up to 4kW in CW laser sources and 1000/10000 QCW laser sources. Focused spot sizes can range from as small as 10um (with single-mode fibers) and as large as 200um. We also offer specialty laser sources in other wavelengths including Pico and Femto second in custom configurations.

Cutting Head

The Cutting Head and its optical configuration are an important part of the laser system so, we carefully match the cutting head configuration to the applications to ensure peak performance. We offer a wide variety of configurations to best match the laser choice and spot size requirements and offer head options in both manual and auto focusing to meet any production requirement.

FCL22

The FCL22 offers industrial fiber laser metal cutting in the smallest possible footprint. The FCL22 doesn’t compromise the cutting speed or accuracy that the FiberCAB is known for, yet it’s the most affordable member of the line.
