The fibre laser cutting facility at Greenfield offers our customers state of the art laser cutting processing using variable beam control technology.
This cutting edge innovation is made possible through the modulation of the laser beam as a function of sheet thickness and can process various thin gauges of material, including mild steel, galvanised steel, zintec, aluminium, stainless steel, copper, brass and pre-coated steel.
Like the CNC punching machines the laser is programmed via Radan’s CAD/CAM system and Logistics’ Order Manger software that is network-linked back to our central server and production planning workstations. It’s an efficient, cost effective and flexible system that helps us reduce our internal lead-time into other manufacturing processes. The Fibre laser has tower storage feed to increase productivity with Integrated fibre laser oscillator, automatic nozzle changer and 16 station and Variable beam control unit.

Greenfield Engineering have brought one of the key elements of precision sheet metal manufacturing; New Fibre Laser technologies. This uses the advantages of processing mode to provide the approach of providing precision quality components, and low cost profiling of sheet metal with the flexibility of unmanned high speed laser cutting in one combined manufacturing operation.
This new benchmark in laser processing is the latest generation of Amada’s successful Ensis fibre technology, with 3kW laser technology giving overall combined faster processing capabilities than standard Co2 cutting.
Greenfield’s Amada Ensis-3015 AJ laser cell complete with ASLUL pallet stockyard gives true unmanned lights out 24 hr sheet metal production capabilities.
The inherent benefits of the Amada Ensis-3015 AJ laser is variable beam control technology flexibility with cutting at high speed in a full range of materials without changing lenses throughout production. The laser is also capable of cutting up to 25mm thick mild steel with the equivalent performance of much larger fibre lasers, but using half the power to do the same job. An additional precision option has been added to the machine with OVS automatic compensation system. This will be first to be installed in the UK.
The Ensis-AJ incorporates full material automation on high quality machine offering combined uninterrupted production. The obvious benefits are the ability of removing processes and the need or cost upkeep of special profile tooling.
We work alongside many leading design houses and independent agencies in retail design. Our unique approach is to work in collaboration with customers at an early stage in the conceptual design process.
