Dual-Workstation Multiaxis Laser SystemSeptember 1, 2016
Prima Power Laserdyne, Champlin, MN, has introduced the dual-workstation Laserdyne 606D multiaxis laser-processing system—two completely independent workstations in a single unitized structure. Its main components: a pair of six-axis motion systems, an integral Class 1 enclosure with dual automated doors, two S94P laser-process controls for motion and laser coordination, and two fiber-laser sources. The workstations offer fast and accurate x-y-z-axis motion to 2000 in./min., with 2 g acceleration and bi-directional accuracy of 0.0008 in. Graphite-fiber composite structures for the linear axes contribute to the system’s high dynamic accuracy.
Use the machine for precision 3D laser cutting, welding, drilling and texturing of a range of materials. The controllers provide integrated control of the lasers, motion, process gases and process sensors. The newest of these capabilities, called Smart Techniques, include:
• SmartStop to reduce backwall damage during drilling;
• SmartShield to provide protection against excessive oxidation in the weld area;
• SmartPierce to minimize spatter and pierce time; and
• SmartRamp to eliminate the weld indentation at the end of laser welds.Prima Power Laserdyne: www.primapower.com
