This application example shows a complete 3-axis interpolating automation system for a laser cutting machine. The CNC, the machine safety equipment as well as the intuitive commissioning and operation harmonize perfectly.
Our application fields
New application fields in laser processing demand the highest flexibility of the CNC system. The precise adaptation of all process variables to the contour is crucial for the quality of the final products.
CNC automation with innovative machine operation, all from a single source
Special laser module for precise and synchronized laser control and real-time evaluation of distance sensors
Comprehensive CNC features for the laser processing of metals, plastics, acrylic, composite materials, wood and more
The CNC laser package ensures precise and at the same time fast cutting or engraving of complex contours. The safe collision protection of the cutting head with protruding or tilting parts takes place almost without delay in the CNC kernel.
Tube profiles with different contours can be cut with orthogonal or bevel cutting heads. Such a 3D cut often saves the post-processing of the profile.
3D laser processing
Up to 16 interpolating CNC axes per channel provide for a flexible processing of diverse surface contours.
High-precision yet fast fine cutting, ablation, micro-drilling or laser turning in the sub-micron range place the highest demands on the CNC control and its peripherals. The excellent performance of our automation system fulfills all expectations.
Flexible interfaces and control processes for ultramodern laser sources (e.g. ultrashort pulse lasers) are integrated directly into the CNC
Position-synchronous laser pulse generation with 20 ns resolution and repeatability
Uncomplicated operation of special motors such as spindle or linear drives
Easy realization of complex contours with up to 16 interpolating CNC axes per channel
Galvanometric scan heads allow outstanding precision and dynamic in materials processing. Our laser module controls up to 4 scan heads via the SL2-100 interface directly from the CNC kernel; this saves on expensive additional hardware.
Contour decomposition - quick precision for large areas
Our ‘contour decomposition’ technology supports the precise and highly dynamic processing of large surface areas. The contour is divided between the dynamic optical axes of the scan head (dynamic, small work area) and a mechanical system (large work area) and is moved synchronously.
Combined punch/laser processing
Realize your combination of mechanical forming and cutting of filigree contours using just one flexible CNC automation system.
Drive controllers with up to 250 kW with configurable and programmable motion profile for the electrical punching head
Energy efficiency thanks to energy recovery into the DC link or directly into the supply grid
Coordinated CNC punching and laser processing features in a single system
Highly dynamic distance control for reliable protection of the cutting head from collisions with reshaped sections
The motion profile of the punching head is crucial for the processing quality. The calculation of the profile is performed directly in the drive controller. The CNC controls and synchronizes the punching process, which depends on the contour.
Flexible CNC punching package
The punch and nibble modes can be configured and executed in the CNC controller. The tool follows along on a tangent of the contour. This protects the tools from damage and ensures a smooth contour.
Laser module for maximum performance
Laser pulses with 20 ns accuracy for highest dynamic
In order to achieve a maximum dynamic and short process times, the laser source and the distance of the cutting nozzle are controlled directly from the CNC kernel. A high-speed I/O module converts the commands almost
instantaneously. A 20 nm position resolution is ensured at a 1 m/s cutting speed. At the same time, the laser power and other technology parameters are adapted to the contour.
