Piranha E-series LASERs include a graphical CNC control with Cypcut software. It is a control system and software designed for sheet metal fabrication. Individual or multiple parts are imported as DXF files and can be nested automatically or manually. No knowledge of G- and M-codes is required.

Cypcut software is available as a free download and can be installed on any number of computers for offline programming at no additional cost. The completed nests can be directly transferred to the LASER CNC control via a network connection.

NOTE: Customer shall install and utilize bulk liquid and bulk liquid nitrogen storage tanks. Using portable tanks for O2 or N2 will create additional chances of contamination entering the gas supply lines and the cutting head due to frequent tank changes. Contamination will cause cutting head lens failure and thus cause machine down time and additional operating expense.

The Piranha E-510 must be located in an area which has the following ambient conditions:

  1. Ambient temperature between 10° and 40°C [50° and 104°F]
  2. Relative Humidity at 95% or less

NOTE: Piranha requires that the LASER and chiller remain on at all times to avoid costly damage from condensation.


No special foundation is needed for the Piranha LASER. Standard concrete floors of a minimum 150mm (6”) depth are recommended. Flatness should be within 12mm (0.5”). There should be no expansion joints, saw cuts, or cracks in the floor beneath the frame of the LASER.

Piranha recommends an optics servicing area to be located away from manufacturing areas. This area must have minimum air movement and a dust free environment. For best results, we recommend purchase of a laminar flow box located in an office area.

NOTE: Optics contamination is the leading cause of premature cutting head failure. It is important that optics, such as cover slides, are changed in an extremely clean environment. This area will also be used for on-site cutting head maintenance (to be done by our technicians).


CNC Programming of the Piranha LASER requires CAM software capable of supporting the advanced functions of the machine. The customer is responsible for all costs associated with the development of any new post processor from their selected CAM software vendor. Piranha will provide any information required for the post processor development and will verify that the NC code samples created by that post processor are functional. Requests for information and NC code samples for testing must be received by Piranha eight (8) weeks prior to the scheduled machine shipment.

If extra start-up time is required by Piranha to work with the CAM provider and to test the NC code during or after the machine installation, the additional Piranha service time and expenses will be invoiced to the customer at Piranha’s standard service rates.



Oxygen (O2) and nitrogen (N2) are the most common assist gases used when cutting metals with a fiber LASER. Air is a combination of both O2 (21%) and N2 (78%), small amounts of argon and carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of other gases and water vapor.

Air cutting provides many of the benefits of N2 cutting along with increased cutting speeds in thicknesses 10ga (0.135″) and thinner and significantly lower cutting gas costs.

Air used in LASER cutting must be available with the correct purity, dryness, pressure, and flow. Typical shop air compressor systems are unable to deliver the air quality and performance necessary. A dedicated air compressor system is required.

Nitrogen generator is the separation of air components to capture nitrogen. Nitrogen makes up 78% of the gas in the atmosphere. The rest is 20.9% oxygen, 0.9% argon, 0.03% carbon dioxide and trace gases such as hydrogen, helium, neon, krypton, and xenon. For industrial laser cutting equipment, PRESSURE SWING ABSORPTION (PSA) is used to provide the high pressures and flow rates required.

Nitrogen Generation Systems

NOTE: The maximum flow rate and purity required depend upon the cutting application and edge quality expectations. Other nitrogen generation systems are available to meet different requirements. Please contact Piranha for more information.

A TopSinn 6-filter TODC-6L dust collector is available in lieu of the standard fume exhaust fan. The TODC‑6L features include

  • Integrated industrial made from high-quality cold-rolled steel plate with electrostatic paint finish
  • American HV filter element with quick release design
  • High-efficiency high-speed motor with built-in controller
  • Low noise, high efficiency, low energy consumption
  • No scheduled maintenance
  • Dynamically balanced high-speed vortex fan


The standard dust collector supplied with the machine is adequate for mild  steel and stainless steel cutting. A spark arresting system can be installed  between the laser and dust collector to enhance dust collection safety when cutting aluminum. The TODC-6L dust collector is required for this option.
Piranha suggests that you and your insurance provider review the pertinent NFPA standards prior to making any decision about aluminum dust collection and handling methods when cutting both aluminum and steel/stainless steel on the same machine. Pertinent NFPA standards include, but are not limited to, NFPA 484, NFPA 654 and NFPA 68.
