Rofin-Baasel UK has released the StarCut Universal system, which integrates everything required for fine cutting applications into a standard machine.
The systems has a large work envelope of 600 x 300 x 200mm which is combined with three high precision CNC axes to provid flexibility and precision for fine laser cutting operations.
Additional capability can be achieved by the use of an optional rotary axis enabling complex 3D geometries to be produced within the system.
The fully integrated CNC controller and software is compatible with all prominent CAD formats. Users will also find the PC-based control system simple to operate.
StarCut Universal is available with a choice of laser sources from the new StarCut generation. Options include the proven StarCut 18 which has a power range of 7 to 25W and achieves kerf widths of 18-20µm. Additional laser options include the new StarCut 12fm, a 12W fundamental mode laser which can cut material up to 1.0mm thick – in fine tube or plate, and a kerf width of 15µm is possible. All laser sources within the StarCut family provide excellent pulse to pulse stability and the full range provides up to 300W of power and frequencies of up to 3,000Hz.
