KATANA G-series 8' x 4' CO2 Hybrid Metal/Non-metal Laser Cutting Machine
LightObject’s Katana G-Series is a professional-grade hybrid laser engraving/cutting machine capable of cutting both traditional materials such as wood and acrylic as well as steel and other sheet metals. The Katana is manufactured with a reinforced chassis to handle increased material loads for metal cutting and high rastering speeds while engraving.
Compared to fiber lasers, hybrid CO2 lasers are a cost-effective approach to cutting metals that offer flexibility between materials as well as easy maintenance. While hybrid CO2 lasers produce cuts just shy of “production-quality”, the minimal slag that is produced is easily remedied. Hybrid CO2 lasers require supplemental oxygen or similar consumable gases during metal cutting operations.
The Katana also features an autofocus system for metal cutting applications, eliminating the need to manually focus the laser between jobs. In order to ensure ample torque when driving the sizable gantry, the Katana utilizes dual-motor technology on the Y-axis. We have also utilized a gear-driven system in the G-Series model of the Katana, eliminating the backlash and other inconsistencies that are commonly associated with belt-driven systems.
While the default 130-watt CO2 laser tube is powerful enough to cut through 3/4” plywood, we also offer up to a 260-watt variant for those who require additional speed/power. Due to the power output of this unit, water cooling is required. As such, a LightObject 1600W chiller is included with the purchase of this unit.
