fiber or co2 + power


I have a question if I would like to cut on laser machine mostly mild steel (thickness from 2 to 20 mm), also hardox (from 4 to 15 mm) and very little stainless steel and Al ..which type of laser would be appropriate for cutting Co2 or Fiber laser if quality of cut is very important in whole thickness range? and also appropriate power of the laser machine ? Thanks for the answers...

RE: fiber or co2 + power

i would say 4KW co2 would work fine at all those ranges
