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

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.
