The latest product edition from Durma is the HD-FO compact laser. Designed specifically as an entry level, flat bed laser system for workshops with limited space and for customers who want in-house control of quality and productivity. The HD-FO is available with a Durma fiber laser power source of 1kw or 2kw – the focus length is 125mm and focusing is automatic. The compact laser also offers the easy loading and unloading of sheet via a quick opening front door without the need of a shutter table. This compact laser is competitively priced and easily transportable and has been specifically designed to accommodate sheets to a maximum size of 3m x 1.5m. The maximum sheet weight is 575kg.

Cutting capacities for the 1kw laser are: 8mm for mild steel; 4mm for stainless steel, aluminium and brass; and 2mm for copper. The cutting capacities for the 2kw laser are 12mm, 6mm and 3mm respectively. The positional accuracy and repeatability are ±0.05mm.

The CNC control is a Siemens Siminerik 840D SL system with a 19-inch touch panel, a Durma operator interface and a complete cutting database for all standard cutting applications. This includes the cutting parameters for most frequently profiled materials and common thickness ranges, although operators can fine tune the parameters to optimise the cutting quality for certain materials.
