This article reports on the introduction of the TLF 6000, a 6,000-watt carbon dioxide laser resonator, by Farmington, Connecticut-based Trumpf Inc. for flat-sheet laser cutting. The resonator is capable of cutting effectively at speeds up to 1,900 inches per minute when processing thin sheets. With its 6000-watt laser, the resonator can cut stainless steel, aluminum and other materials.
