FiberCUT® ST

Laser Mechanisms’ FiberCUT® Straight (ST) laser processing head collimates and focuses a fiber-delivered laser beam and directs it along with cutting gas through its nozzle for optimal metal cutting. FiberCUT® ST’s ­nozzle also senses the required tip standoff from the workpiece and automatically maintains that distance through its internal drive system. The head’s cover glass protects the cutting lens from process debris.

  • 3-dimensional cutting with fiber-coupled laser for 16 kg robots
  • Low moving mass minimizes inertia transfer to robot support arm
  • Internal, low-noise height sensing system is insensitive to cutting plasma or piercing debris


Features
  • Z lens focus-to-tip adjustment
  • X-Y beam-to-tip centering adjustment
  • Works with all leading fiber-delivered laser ­systems up to 4 kW with wavelengths of 1064/1080 nm
  • Complete system consists of cutting head, fiber collimator and linear drive with position measuring
  • Cam-operated drive system with axial crash protection
  • All wiring and assist gas lines are internally plumbed – avoiding costly snags and breaks
  • Cartridge style drawer provides quick and easy access to the cover glass
  • Provides error signals in case of collision, over-
    temperature and exceeding the operating range
  • Sealed beam path
  • Engineered for the harsh factory floor environment
