Machine profile:MSF series
- Working area 6,000 x 2,000 mm
- Cutting of pipes Ø 30 – 300 mm and hollow sections up to a
length of 6,000 mm
- Laser rotator for weld preparation up to 45° with auto-
calibration feature (ACTG®) + 6 kW fiber laser source

Rytz Industriebau AG decided to use an MSF FiberLas, a fiber laser cutting solution which allows to perform several processes on only one machine. The laser cutting system has a processing area of 6,000 x 2,000 mm for sheet metal processing; the system can also process tubes and profiles from 30 to 300 mm diameter. The equipment includes a high-power laser source from IPG, a laser rotator, a fully automatic calibration unit ACTG, a fully automatic shuttle table and a technology for subsequent bevel processing on already cut parts (ABP®).
