LVD Strippit, Akron, N.Y., has launched the Electra FL 3015 8kW fiber laser cutting machine. The ultra-high-speed Electra cuts a range of ferrous and nonferrous materials as fast as the thermal process allows without dynamic compromise, the company claims. The Electra 8kW can maintain 2G acceleration speed while cutting, producing cuts in simple to complex configurations. The Electra FL also features a new cutting head, new "smooth lead-in" feature, advanced drive system and the latest generation of LVD's Strippit's WESPA, the European partner of Simonds Saw, Fitchburg, Mass., has introduced the ability to produce instant "blade-to- machine" data transfer of machine-specific cutting parameters for its custom band saw blades program, Individual Perfor- mance Cutting. This innovative instant data transfer technology directly supports the Industry 4.0 concept and is an industry- first for band saw blade manufacturers. By using a mobile device and scanning a QR code on the saw blade or blade box, saw operators can point the scan to the machine to transfer a complete, unique data set so the machine can begin cutting.

The ability to change the focal point allows Electra to pierce 20-millimeter material in just two seconds for significant pro- ductivity on fully nested sheets. This also means that less heat is generated in the material, making it more efficient to cut small holes. For more information, call 800-828-1527 or visit
