The nozzle is designed to withstand spatter generated during piercing, accelerating piercing and mini- mizing the risk of damage. The nozzles are capable of fusion cutting of 0.5"-thick mild steel sheets, instead of 0.4" thick as in the past. The nozzles can cut stainless-steel sheets ranging from 0.16" to 1" thick. Because the nozzles can cut a range of material thick- nesses, mix-ups and setup times are reduced. Cut edges are said to exhibit low surface rough- ness and a consistent look. Nozzles are available for the TruLaser Series 5000 equipped with an 8-kW solid-state laser and will be available for 6-kW solid-state lasers. are immediately available from Helfer Tool Company.
