Any Amada Ensis fiber laser experiences?

Any Amada Ensis fiber laser experiences?

(OP)
We have an older Amada FO3015NT 4kW and an F1 4kW. We are considering buying an Amada Ensis 2kW fiber laser. Does anybody have any experience with this machine?

RE: Any Amada Ensis fiber laser experiences?

3i controller can cut higher thickness with lesser power....amnc panel has an upgrade ...i guess you do face cutting issues like any laser machine....although its far less..if you think you can get your money back within 3-5 years ...definitely worth it.

RE: Any Amada Ensis fiber laser experiences?

I'm not sold on the Ensis personally. The feed rates are too slow compared to the FLCAJ (which is what we have). If you're buying a fiber laser to cut thicker with oxygen then you're looking at the wrong kind of machine.

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the input. Most of the cutting will be on thinner materials w/ nitrogen
