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 z-axis 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

  • Z lens focus-to-tip adjustment
  • Works with all leading fiber-delivered laser ­systems up to 4 kW
  • Complete system consists of cutting head, fiber collimator and linear drive with position measuring
  • Cam-operated z-axis 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
