Florida-based Fonon has unveiled ten major upgrades to its Titan family of large, flatbed multi-purpose laser cutting machines, integrating multiple sub-systems and introducing several improvements designed to increase end-user productivity, lower costs over time, minimize the Titan’s footprint and reduce its power consumption. Designed to consume less than 5% of the power required by common carbon dioxide (C02) laser systems, the Titan FX Laser Cutting Machine is a maintenance-free, turnkey system with an integrated laser source and heat exchange. Its laser is modular and available in 1kW, 2kW or 4kW increments, allowing users to increase the laser cutting power up to 8kW. It’s also  field-upgradeable to adapt to changes in production environment. This eliminates many of the high installation and maintenance costs of typical laser cutting systems, said the OEM.

Technical advancements recently incorporated in many of Fonon’s other laser material processing systems allow the Titan FX to adjust dynamically to slight variations in thickness across the metal plate. Additionally, the updated Titan is equipped with a sealed feedback sensor, allowing flawless operation in hash industrial environments. Its friction-less, direct-drive linear-motion platform, software-controlled orthogonality, and lightweight bridge enable high acceleration and “cutting-on-the-fly” capabilities. Further advancements include the ability to re-calibrate the gantry at the press of a button, ensuring the material is always in alignment, free of seizures and unplanned machine failures. Power wattage upgrades to the laser do not require a specialized field engineer, and all operational steps are designed specifically for user best practices. The Titan is a true “plug-and-play system,” requires no consumables, and is maintenance-free.

“Until now, the most advanced laser cutting technologies were available only to industrial giants,” said Dmitriy Nikitin, CTO and Interim CEO of Fonon Corporation. “The redesigned Titan FX Laser Cutting System, with its drastically-reduced base price, ease of installation and low operational costs, opens the door for small and medium-size companies to avail themselves of the most advanced cutting technology.”
