Customised CNC technology from NUM is helping the laser cutting machine manufacturer Favor Laser to accelerate product development and address new markets.
Using special hardware and software designed by NUM, the Taiwanese company has developed a laser cutter that is capable of producing very small or very large parts from sheet metal, with a feed rate of up to 60 metres per minute.
This new machine will mark Favor Laser’s entry into the high-performance end of the market, which the company intends to penetrate rapidly through a groundbreaking combination of performance and highly aggressive pricing that will reduce the costs of these machines by some 20 percent.
Founded in 1994, Favor Laser is based in New Taipei City, Taiwan, with additional sales and manufacturing facilities in Shanghai, China.
Until now, the company has concentrated on producing laser cutters for the low cost end of the market, offering four ranges of machine to suit different sheet metal fabrication requirements such as small batch size manufacturing, precision cutting of small parts, or high volume production of larger parts.
