MSS Creates New Fiber Lasers
RUGBY, England, Feb. 26, 2014 — MSS Lasers has expanded its line of fiber laser cutting machines, touted as some of the most advanced on the market.
The new fiber lasers — Eagle eVision and iNspire — use 70 percent less power than traditional CO2 lasers, project developers said, as they eliminate laser gas and components such as turbines, mirrors and bellows. They are also stronger and more durable, with the ability to cut reflective materials including copper, brass and those that are plastic-coated.

Linear drives on three axes and a low-inertia carbon fiber transverse bridge construction enable users to accelerate the lasers up to 6 g and achieve cutting speeds in excess of 100 m/min. Different laser power options are available as well, from 2 kW up to a maximum of 6 kW.

- In optics, a collapsible structure situated between the lens and film of a camera to allow variation of the distance between them while preventing surrounding light from exposing the film.
- fiber laser
- A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
