Fonon Technologies’ 3D Subtractive Fiber Laser Metal Cutting Systems Set Industry Benchmarks For Rapid Processing Of Highly-Reflective Thin Metals Aluminum, Copper and Brass
 
 
 

Fonon Technologies advanced the art of processing reflective metals over a decade ago introducing Fiber Laser as a new emerging technology when CO² lasers ruled the roost. During that same era, Fonon Technologies also introduced Direct Drive Motion Systems setting the global standard for rapid access across the entire working surface, unparalleled laser placement accuracies and unheard-of accelerated processing speeds compared to the now outdated flying optics design that incorporates agitating belts, pulleys and/or ball screws with well documented reliability issues inherent with the design including system seizures and material misalignment during operation. 

Today, Fonon Technologies continues the tradition of setting next-generation industry standards introducing “LiteBridge” Technology materially reducing the weight of the processing bridge while incorporating cutting edge Zero-Friction, Direct Drive Motion Systems along the gantry with its revolutionary “True Orthogonal” Mechanization. 

These elements combine for rapid traverse speeds across the entire working surface and higher acceleration rates with pinpoint Laser-Beam placement veracity setting new records in throughput rates with thin-metal materials always in perfect alignment.

THE TITAN SERIES

Next, Fonon Technologies eliminated the need for additional external mirrors that intrinsically degrade the laser beam’s quality and focal point developing an advanced fiber optic delivery cable system that delivers maximum beam control to the cutting lens. When integrated with a high-speed, high-powered fiber laser, Fonon Technologies again raises the bar of excellence supplying the smallest beam spot directly to the desired work area materially increasing cutting speeds up to 5X faster than CO² lasers while demonstrating superior quality of workmanship on highly-reflective metals including aluminum, copper and brass.

 
 
 

Better yet, what differentiates Fonon Technologies from all other suppliers is a mission minded commitment to design each Fiber Laser Cutting system around the unique application of its customer’s requirements and metal bringing superior 3D Metal Subtractive Technologies to the demands of the application for optimum throughput, quality and return on investment (ROI). 

These systems disrupt the manner in which our customers process thin, reflective metals across multiple market sectors. In the aerospace industry, customers no longer depend on multiple processing technologies with extensive supply line management systems and supplier networks to tool aluminum aircraft skins. 

In one dedicated system, aircraft companies can manufacture a turn-key skin section with rivet through-holes for immediate assembly. In light-weight automotive trucking applications, aluminum panels/side walls can be completed in one operation. With Fonon Technologies’ Fiber Laser Cutting Systems linked to a library of building-block technologies, our family of standard Titan Cutting Systems offer examples of application specific systems that are still in demand today radically changing the way in which copper and brass gaskets, and other reflective metal products are manufactured setting new standards for speed, accuracy, through-put and quality in a non-stop production environment with the highest degree of long-term return on investment (ROI). 

With each customer’s thin metal application, Fonon draws from an impressive portfolio of proprietary modules assembling a turn-key system dedicated to the unique attributes of the reflective metal requirement.

But it does not stop there! 

Zero-Friction Direct Drive Linear (DDL) motors laid out flat and directly coupled to the driving load with the company’s flagship “True Orthogonal” Mechanization replacing mechanical transmission components coupled to massive, heavy-lift mechanical motors. These elements eliminate system seizers and material jamming with the company’s “Never-Fail” Anti-Jamming Technology with “Never-Miss” precision placement automation.

Coupled with the company’s “LiteBridge” architecture, Fonon Technologies’ 3D Subtractive Fiber Laser Cutting Systems for high-reflective thin metals deliver exceptional performance, extremely high stiffness, very high dynamic speeds and accelerations, high positional accuracy, higher throughput, compact mechanical assembly, quiet operation, zero maintenance and smooth, error-free motion.
