This year the folks at JMT are proud to show off the new Nukon FA new fiber laser cutting machine manufactured in Turkey is being introduced to the Americas, and this is a machine that could potentially change the landscape of the current metal laser cutting scene, saving companies literally tens of thousands of dollars because of the time and labor it can save them in production.

JMT has teamed up with Nukon, a 13-year-old company from Turkey, to bring a fiber laser technology that is not only affordable, but has greater energy efficiencies than traditional CO2 lasers currently being used in the marketplace.

By simply utilizing a solid-state design to create the laser beam, and then transporting the beam through a fiber optic cable to the cutting head, machine owners can expect to see up to 70 percent energy efficiencies over traditional CO2 machines.

Here is what the JMT USA / Nukon Fiber Laser machines do:  WATCH NOW

All of us at Jorgenson Industrial Companies are proud to show attendees our latest and greatest tool which will save them money and time, while streamlining and allowing their companies to become more efficient in their processes and manufacturing.

Dustin Jorgenson stands next to this amazing piece of history, showing how far Jorgenson Machine Tools has come from during its amazing growth.

As you can see above, technology has come quite a long ways since one of our first Leaf Brake which was made in 1893!  Incidentally our piece of history was featured in the entryway to the Fabtech Show.
