ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of 3D Optimu Vivida laser system by Prima Industrie SpA. According to the Prima's Chief Executive Officer Massimo Bovi, the Optimu system uses Vivida laser head which is accessible in X,Y and Z axes and allows to be moved in elevated dynamics. It mentions the advantages of Vivida laser which includes the reduction of cutting time, the increase of the cutting quality and the ease of use for production of low-volume products.
