GF Machining Solutions’s high-performance Laser P 400 U five-axis machine can machine small, intricate parts. The machine includes a dual laser head that incorporates both a fiber nanosecond laser and a femtosecond pulsed laser. This allows texturing, marking and engraving of a surface with a single setup, as well as extends the range of materials that can be processed.

It can be used for small components such as watches and jewelry as well as for cutting tools, small inserts and micromachined workpieces. With a footprint of only 48.4” × 87.8”, the machine fits into existing production environments. It accommodates workpieces with a maximum diameter and height of 4.7” and is automation-ready for unattended night and weekend operations.
