Fiber Laser Process Tools

Supplementing our redPOWER CW Fiber Lasers with a modular range of welding and cutting focus heads.

A Range of Versatile Process Tools

In manufacturing one size does not fit all, which is why we offer a range of specialist process tools. Our re-collimation units, cutting and welding heads are modular in design so a package can be tailored to your unique needs.

Ease of use: The interchangeable lens module with fast-change cover slide and focus lens cell mean it is easy to swap lenses according to the application. A variety of diffraction-optimised lens sizes are available for our Fiber Laser range.

Fine focus control: For single mode Fiber Lasers using a typical 1:1 imaging onto the work piece, the Rayleigh range is only 100µm. To optimise kerf width and cut quality, the focus position must be fine-tuned. Therefore, our cutting heads feature a high resolution (<50µm) real-time control of the focus position over a ±2.5mm range. This eliminates the need to move the whole process tool, which would affect the stand-off position.

Assisted gas flow: The gas routing into the nozzle is optimised for maximum velocity, uniformity and extended parallel flow to achieve the best possible cut. The gas flow is integrated so there are no unsightly external gas pipes to interfere with part access.

Air knife: For welding applications, we offer an air knife, which delivers high velocity airflow across the cover glass to efficiently deflect weld spatter and extend the cover glass life.

Through the Lens (TTL) illumination: This integral light allows users to clearly see their welding and cutting applications, when using the CCTV camera option.

Height-sensing cutting head: Available for our Fiber Laser range, with or without viewing capability, our height-sensing cutting head automatically detects contours in the processed material. Any variations from set focus positions triggers an error correction signal.

Robust, compact design: Time and money are precious commodities for any business. Therefore, our process tools are robustly designed to be maintenance-free, even in the most demanding applications. They also fit compactly into small spaces so users are not faced with the prospect of redesigning their workstation enclosure.
