The Laserdyne 606D multi-axis laser processing system, available from Prima Power Laserdyne, features two independent workstations in a single unitized structure to maximize the work envelope and throughput per unit of manufacturing floor space. Designed for precision 3D laser cutting, welding, drilling and texturing of a range of materials, the machine provides two S94P controllers for integrated control of the laser, motion, process gases and process sensors. The newest of these capabilities, called Smart Techniques, includes Smart Stop to reduce backwall damage during drilling, Smart Shield to provide protection against excessive oxidation in the weld area, Smart Pierce to minimize spatter and pierce time, and Smart Ramp to eliminate the weld indentation at the end of laser welds.

The machine features two 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 lasers. The two lasers can be of the same or different types and average power depending upon the applications for the system.

The two workstations feature XYZ speeds of 2,000 ipm (50 m/min), 2-G acceleration and bidirectional accuracy of 0.0008" (20 microns). High throughput is enabled through linear motors for the X and Y axes. Graphite fiber composite structures for the linear axes contribute to the system’s high dynamic accuracy.

Also included are two of the company’s Beam Directors for positioning the laser beam in rotary and tilt axes. Optional OFC optical focus control or OFC2 absolute precision measurement for laser processing sensors are available for a variety of workpiece mapping and sensing applications. The system’s high-mass synthetic granite composite base is designed to provide a stable motion system platform with high dynamic accuracy during laser processing. The composite base damps external vibrations so they are not transmitted to the laser, optical beam delivery or the motion axes.
