Sheet and tube fibre laser comes to the Bison showroom!
- Peter Dawber
We are pleased to announce that we have invested in the latest fibre laser technology with the RVD SmartFibre PR Laser, with optional Tube Cutting Attachment, now installed in our showroom in Stafford. This versatile model offers both sheet and tube cutting on the same machine, with the laser cutting head moving quickly from the sheet cutting table to the tube cutting zone.

Need to know more?
The RVD SmartFibre PR models are fitted as standard with the nLight laser sources from the USA, the Raytools cutting head from Switzerland and other high quality components throughout. The machines are available in a range bed sizes and with laser powers from 700W to 8kW according to the range of materials to be processed. Models can be viewed on the RVD website here.
The showroom model features the easy to use Windows based CypCut and CypTube software for managing the transition from drawing to cut part. The Cypcut software can import drawing files of components and complete nests or files can be drawn on the control or created from standard shapes. The Cyptube software requires a 3D drawing file with a cutting path in IGES format, although a number of modifications can be made on the control.
Don’t need a combination machine?
The RVD SmartFibre range includes a range both compact lasers and dedicated tube lasers, although we have chosen to showcase both technologies by investing in the combination model for the showroom. Dedicated tube laser offer high production cutting - around double the speed of the tube attachment - and can be fitted with magazine feeds. Standalone sheet cutting machines are available in compact and shuttle table designs, with or without tower loading/unloading systems.
This is only the beginning; we have also invested in an RVD SmartFibre ER Compact Fibre Laser featuring a manual roll out table which can be loaded by crane or forklift. but doesn’t take up permanent space in the workshop. This machine really does make laser cutting affordable to the majority of fabricators. Contact us on 01785 214242 to find out more or get in touch via our contact page.
