Is the new metal fiber laser cutter running yet?

Its not running yet, but work on it is moving along. I would say the target date should be around the beginning of the year.


What portions of the metal shop are back online? Can I weld again?

Welding is back online, as is most of the Electrical upgrades are still being completed, so some equipmemt is getting shuffled around.

I’m new. What will we be able to do with this?


Edit: got it. 3/8 mild steel. Rad.

For the most part, I’ve been telling people to expect a max of 11 gauge (1/8") when using shop air. At a kilowatt, we could probably go up to 6mm, but with thicker material comes more risk of damage.

We’ll have a better understanding once it’s running.
