Effortless laser cutting of metals!

The MQ 1390 fiber metal laser cutter is standard available with laser powers from 500W to 2kW. For higher powers, the frame is modified at some points such as placing the source outside the laser. Are you looking for a flexible solution, it is also possible to make the laser bed adjustable in height to place larger objects in the machine, feel free to ask for the options. At MetaQuip there is a deviation from the standard is no exception since every customer is unique.

Laser source – Raycus, IPG or…

MetaQuip uses Raycus and IPG sources. Raycus is one of the largest players in China and over the past decade Raycus has proven to provide high quality laser sources from 10W to 20kW power. For the laser head, MetaQuip uses Raytools laser heads with autofocus and height tracking function. All laser cutting parameters are set from the software, which is why MetaQuip always recommends using the Raytools laser head for every power.

All parts for Raytools laser heads are in stock and, where necessary, the MetaQuip technicians can provide full service to the laser head. All Raytools laser heads are equipped with a built-in detection if the head hits objects. This prevents accidents and because the process is paused, the user has time to remove the object and continue with the workpiece.

Full automatic focus setting

MetaQuip supplies the MQ-FC1390 fiber metal laser cutter standard with full automatic focus setting. This has advantages in particular when laser cutting somewhat thicker plate material. The thickness range of the materials to be cut is wider, requiring frequent changes to the focus setting. This means that the focus setting must not only be set after changing the metal type, but also between different material thicknesses. The automatic focus setting, but the operation is simpler and less prone to error.

Example of stainless steel laser cutting
Metal fibercutter height controller

Fully automatic height sensor

The MQ-FC1390 fiber metal laser cutter is equipped with a fully automatic height sensor. This ensures that the laser head always follows the metal perfectly, even if the material is not completely flat. This guarantees a perfect cutting result. The height sensor samples the height 1000x per second and adjusts the height with a static accuracy of 10 micrometers (50um dynamic response accuracy) within a range of 0-25mm. The focus setting is set per material.

Control panel

The MQ-FC1390 fiber metal laser cutter works in exactly the same logical way as our other laser machines. This makes the machine easy to use and the operator can quickly learn how to work safely with the MetaQuip fiber laser metal laser cutters. The MQ1390 service is done entirely from the control unit.

All peripheral equipment is operated from the control unit and malfunctions mentioned in the software / cutting are blocked if this can lead to damage. If the filter unit is not active, the process will stop to prevent vapors from building up in the machine. By checking the peripheral equipment, damage can be prevented and the user has from the control unit full insight into the process.

The machine is supplied with an industrial remote control as standard. This gives the user direct access to most remote functions.

Digital alarm cutting gas flow sensors flow

Alarm at low oxygen and/or nitrogen pressure

MetaQuip supplies the FC1390 standard equipped with digital flow sensors for the oxygen and nitrogen supply. The cutting gas sensors are fully integrated in the software. If the gas pressure is too low or fails, for example because the gas bottle is empty, you will receive a warning on the screen and the cutting process will be stopped. This prevents cutting damage to the workpiece and more importantly prevents any damage to the laser head.

Digitally adjustable flow of oxygen

The gas flow of oxygen is digitally adjustable. So that you can select exactly the right gas flow for specific materials. The gas flow has a direct influence on the cutting quality.

Standard features on the FC1390 fiber metal laser cutter

Air exhaust detection

The gases and vapors released from laser cutting metal can be poisonous. That is why good air extraction is essential. The moment the air extraction does not work, this is automatically detected by the security system and the machine controller automatically switches off the laser source.

Smart crash detection

Objects that are cut free can sometimes tilt upwards, creating the risk of the laser head bumping into it. The built-in smart crash detection in the laser head prevents this from happening. The laser head moves to a safe position and the machine alerts the operator so that he can remove the object and continue the laser job safely.

Water cooling for the laser head

The laser head of a fiber laser machine must be properly cooled. A high-quality water cooler with 2 separate cooling circuits is supplied as standard. As a result, the laser source and laser head with the lenses are kept separately and very accurately at the perfect temperature. Any warnings are shown on the operator's display and in the event of an alarm, the laser is immediately turned off to prevent damage.

Remote control

The MQ-FC1390 comes standard with a radiographic remote control. It allows you to control all main functions remotely. This works quickly and easily. The remote is magnetic and can easily be placed anywhere on the machine.

Automatic edge detection

The built-in height controller BCS100 can automatically search the edges of the sheet material. The software can then automatically compensate so that objects are always cut within the sheet material.

Solid state laser source

MetaQuip supplies the FC1390 with a solid state as standard Raycus fiber laser source. Raycus sources are very stable and have a service life of at least 80000 hours. Optionally, the machine can also be equipped with a IPG laser source. The laser source has no moving parts and is completely maintenance-free except for the laser head.

Cypcut laser software

MetaQuip supplies the fiber laser metal cutter with the Cypcut software program as standard. Cypcut works intuitively for both the beginner and the professional user and also has some advanced features such as automatic nesting functions to organize plates efficiently, extensive lead in / out options, micro joints, fly-cutting , pierce functions and extensive cutting settings. The entire laser machine can be operated via Cypcut and all warnings and error messages are received centrally here.

Motorized vertical sliding door

The MQ1390 has one vertical sliding door allowing maximum access to the machine. This one is provided with a light lock. If this is passed, the machine is immediately stopped, causing the safety of the operator.

Material type & thickness

The following material can be cut on the FC1390 fiber metal laser cutter:

  • Carbon steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium
  • Galvanized steel
  • Galvanized sheet
  • Copper alloy
  • Many other metals

The thickness of the metal to be cut depends on the laser power and the cutting gas used. Cutting aluminum or copper requires a higher laser power. Guidelines:

Metal cutting thickness guidelines

Help / Cutting gases

To laser cut metal, auxiliary gases are required as shown above. MetaQuip does not supply auxiliary gases itself, but can advise you on this.

Air Extraction and filtering

The metal fumes released when laser cutting metal are harmful to health. A good air extraction and filter installation is therefore necessary. MetaQuip can advise you and provide you with a suitable solution.

BOFA air filters for laser machines

We only work with BOFA air filters. BOFA filters achieve a higher negative pressure at lower flow rates, which means they can better remove heavy particles from the machine. BOFA filter by their patented design a much longer filter duration. A BOFA filter guarantees you of one good service over the years, one much lower consumption of filters, making a BOFA filter significantly cheaper to use over the competitors in the filter market.

BOFA Spark arrestor

The BOFA Sparkarrestor ensures that any glowing metal parts are caught, which also extends the life of the AD1000 unit's pre-filter and reduces the risk of fire. BOFA air filters are these filters equipped with remote start / stop and feedback to the laser, so that laser can only be performed if the filter is working correctly. 

light use

For light use we recommend and supply the BOFA AD1000iQ with Spark arrestor. The AD1000iQ is an industrial air filter that ensures that the air is cleaned of toxic fumes and particles.

Intensive use

For more intensive use and larger machines, we also supply the BOFA AD2000iQ or AD4000iQ. MetaQuip can advise you on this.
