The HLF series fibre laser is the newest edition to the range of Yawei sheetmetal machinery on offer from Applied Machinery into the Australian market.

Following the successful HLF series launch at EuroBLECH in Hanover, Germany, in October, the first machine (HLF-1530 4kW IPG) arrived in Australia in January. Applied had already been fielding enquiries from a broad cross-section of customers who are keen to get the first look at this premium laser processing system on Australian soil.

With more than 25 years’ experience in building premium sheetmetal machinery, Yawei is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of CNC press brakes, CNC turret punch presses and guillotines. Its entrance into the laser cutting market comes off the back of years of R&D and refinement of the machines in the domestic market.

Over the course of its 10-year partnership with Yawei, Applied Machinery has delivered and installed well in excess of 150 CNC press brakes, turret punch presses and guillotines across Australia. This brand success is built on Yawei’s commitment to building premium, feature-packed machinery, at a competitive price point, combined with Applied Machinery’s class-leading sales and service network across the country.

“We have happy Yawei customers all across Australia,” said Applied Machinery’s Marketing Manager, Daniel Fisher. “And with the addition of the HLF series of fibre lasers to our product line-up, this strong customer base is only set to grow further.”

According to Fisher, the HLF series fibre laser from Yawei is in a league of its own dollar for dollar, and will open up possibilities for companies all across the laser cutting sector – from start-ups, through to full production, three-shift environments. Yawei fibre laser systems offer a number of significant benefits including extreme accuracy, speed and consistency of cut, combined with very low operating and maintenance costs.

“All HLF series fibre lasers arrive standard with Precitec (Germany), auto-focus cutting heads and IPG (USA) laser sources,” Fisher added. “Combine this with a Siemens 840DSL controller and a fabricated, fully annealed frame, and you quickly start to see the benefits of these machines when compared to other units in the market.”

Applied Machinery recently celebrated 25 years in business and in addition to Yawei, represents a large range of other premium machinery manufacturers, including Genox, Mitsubishi, Cosen, Chen Hsong, Takisawa, Wele, Hermle, Akyapak, JWell & SML.
