Laserlathe Features & Benefits

The LaserLathe advanced  technology design creates a linear-rotary motion sub-system which expands the performance envelope for speed, precision and user friendliness. Typically, these attributes are highly desirable on laser machining systems for tube cutting operations, micro-drilling, helix/spiral cutting, surgical instrument production, implant machining, micro-welding and similar operations requiring highly precise and coordinated multi-axis linear-rotary motion.

Specific characteristics are these capabilities:

  • Minimized moving mass achieves higher acceleration and therefore higher vector velocities.
  • Increased speed and acceleration achieves higher precision in shorter cycle times and higher productivity.
  • Low center-axis elevation produces synergistic effects including reduced Abbé error at the point of interest, most compact machine design and reduced moving mass with smooth accel ramping and no decel overshoot.

Simple design with minimal number of parts:  easy end-user operation and lower cost of ownership. The end user benefits from expanded reliability and less down-time.

Applications

Designed for tube cutting and implant manufacturing, the LaserLathe can also be applied to wide ranging production system applications where small diameter components require precision machined features such as spiral/helix cutting, micro hole drilling, scribing, cutting and micro-welding. Applications would include components for microwave and antennae systems, medical syringes, surgical wires, fuel injectors, ink jet nozzles and other small diameter, tubular manipulation applications requiring a combination of high volume, precision and meticulous quality.

LaserLathe is an advanced technology tool, built to satisfy demanding requirements in high precision laser material processing applications. LaserLathe is ideally matched to the medical stent production process and adaptable to other laser manufacturing processes involving linear and simultaneous rotary motions. Addressing sequential points of interest on the circumference of round work pieces, tubing or bar stock similar to a CNC Lathe. Conceptualized and designed for this purpose, it offers high productivity, ease of operation and superb precision operation in a versatile and ready to integrate package.
