Metal laser cutting machines for sale in South Africa
Enjoy all the speed, power and efficiency of a fiber laser cutting machine at an entry level price thanks to the MaxLaser MAX-3015H, proudly distributed in South Africa by MaxLaser.
With an impressive 3m x 1.5m working area and the ability to work with various laser heads and outputs from 1000W to 6000W, the Maxlaser is both fast and versatile, making it the perfect solution for any business looking to cut sheet metals such as steel and aluminium.
High speed metal laser cutters are used in a huge variety of industries – from aerospace and automotive engineering to the production of medical equipment. They’re used to create stencils, artworks, bespoke room dividers and gates, frames for beds, and screw and air holes for a diverse range of electronic equipment components and mechanical hardware.
In South Africa, they are frequently used in the production of sports equipment, metal furniture and shelving, to create sink and kitchen surfaces, for metallic signage and advertising, custom storage and packaging solutions, and in the building of agricultural machinery.
Increasingly, aluminium laser cutters and steel laser cutting machines are being used in the production of clean energy tech such as solar systems and lithium battery units.
Your all-in-one laser cutter for metal
Basically, fiber laser cutting machines can be used wherever sheet metal needs to be trimmed or shaped, especially when complex and intricate designs need to be made with high accuracy. Despite their impressive power, they’re also renowned for their energy efficiency and speed – cutting up to 80mm per second!
If desired, lower power settings can be used to make only a partial cut on the surface of the metal, leaving a distinct and permanent engraving – such as a part, asset, or serial number. This makes working with large corporates and governmental departments a possibility.
What metals can the MaxLaser cut?
The most widespread use of the MAX-3015H is to laser cut stainless steel, mild steel and laser cut aluminium. However, they can be used on virtually any metal plating or sheeting, including:
- Alloy steel
- Galvanized steel
- Manganese plate
- Nickel titanium alloy
- Carbon steel
- Silicon steel
- Inconel (a nickel-chromium-based superalloy)
- Titanium alloy
- Silicon steel
- Nickel plate
- Silver and gold plate

What’s the difference between a fiber laser cutter and a CO2 cutter?
The central difference between CO2 laser cutters, like our Thunder Laser range, and fiber laser cutters like the MAX-3015H, is the materials they can engrave on and cut. Fiber lasers can slice easily straight through sheet metal and engrave on very thick metal, whereas CO2 lasers are more suitable for engraving and cutting organic materials like wood and fabric, as well as acrylics, plastics, rubber, and can only etch onto harder materials like glass, tile and stone.
Some of the advantages of fiber laser cutting include:
- Lower running and servicing costs
- Much higher speeds and faster running times
- Precise cutting and able to cut all types of sheet metal
