The Fine Cutting System, from Precitec, with integrated camera monitoring can be used for high-precision applications that require laser performances of up to 500 W. Clearance widths of approximately 10 µm can be achieved with a high quality beam.
One new feature of the Fine Cutting system is its adjustable coaxial LED lighting with external power input, providing optimal illumination even during operation. It also has an optically optimized monitoring system for online monitoring by camera. Documentation is possible too - camera data can be recorded and saved on a data storage medium. The TCP can be readjusted in the X/Y direction (repeatable operation) after an optics change and can thus be retained. The time required for readjustment after a nozzle, lens, or protective window change can be significantly shortened by fading-in electronic cross-hairs. Even the actual design of the system has been minimized, reducing its weight. The system can be operated with disk, fiber, and Nd:YAG lasers.
The Fine Cutting System can also be used for cutting stents.
