Cy Laser to distribute Italian laser systems in North America

Chicago-based Cy Laser LLC (www.cy-laser.com) and Italian companies Campana Livio S.r.l. and Finsomac S.r.l. (www.finsomac.com) have reached an agreement for the exclusive North American distribution of Cy Laser high-brilliance laser cutting systems, manufactured by the Italian companies. The agreement also includes an assembly operation for the systems in the U.S. starting in 2009.

According to Cy Laser president and CEO Massimo Denipoti, “Our objective is to quickly bring innovation to the sheet metal, plate and pipe processing industry and enable fabricators serving all industries to benefit from the advantages of this powerful new technology application.”

The high-brilliance technology essentially simplifies the generation and management of the laser beam. Specifically, when used for sheet metal, plate, or pipe cutting, the power requirements of the laser are reduced substantially, while attainable cutting parameters are comparable to a traditional CO2 laser generator.

The systems can cut 0.79-in. mild steel, 0.39-in. stainless steel, and 0.39-in. aluminum, as well as brass and copper. The laser beam can be carried through a fiber-optic cable, eliminating the need for mirror sets.

Cy Laser machines have been in development for several years. Denipoti explains that Campana Livio, S.r.l. is one of the first companies that applied glass-fiber laser sheet metal, plate and pipe  cutting to achieve competitive performance capabilities.
