Piranha-Whitney 12kW Fiber LASER – High Tech Construction

Piranha-Whitney uses polymer granite instead of steel for our machine bases. Polymer granite is heavier, more rigid, and most importantly, not susceptible to any kind of thermal changes. This makes our machines much more reliable and much more stable at the high speeds and accelerations that we can achieve.

Instead of typical rack and pinion drive systems, Whitney lasers use linear drive motors throughout the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis. When compared to rack and pinion systems, linear drive motors give you higher acceleration, faster positioning speeds, and lower maintenance requirements.

The high cutting speeds achievable with the Whitney 12-kilowatt fiber laser means that your parts will be completed much more quickly, so it’s important to get the material in and out of the machine as quickly as possible. Standard Whitney pallet designs only require 60 to 90 seconds to change one sheet of material to another. This means more parts on the floor at the end of the day with a Whitney plate laser than with any other laser on the market.

The Whitney plate laser is a cantilever design machine, using high strength materials that are lightweight. This allows us to provide the highest acceleration and speed possible. Cantilever design also allows you to use a single drive motor. This simplifies maintenance and increases reliability of the system.

These are just a few of the features of the Whitney 12-kilowatt plate. For more information, give us a call or check out our website.
