Solid Cutter is the industry standard for robot cutting with an integral axis for automated nozzle height following.
The Form Cutter has an additional two axis allowing for high speed high accuracy laser cutting in a 50x50mm envelope independent of robotic interpolation.
The SolidCutter enables the machining of spatial geometries with highest accuracy. It convinces in the 3D machining of complex individual contours on metallic materials.
The SolidCutter is mainly used in 3D laser cutting systems for the automobile industry. Robot guided laser cutting is the flexible and highly productive method for the processing of high-strength body components and profiles – for example, for making openings for roof rails and contours in vehicle doors. The compact and weight-optimized design of the laser cutting head results in high dynamics and great freedom of movement. The integrated fine adjustment of the working distance ensures that any inaccurate web guidance is reliably compensated. This allows you to achieve a consistently high cutting quality even at high feed rates.
Complex production lines are often equipped with 3D laser cutting systems. They work under difficult environmental conditions and must meet high requirements. The long service life of the SolidCutter, its slim design and the easily accessible media connections in the upper head area are attractive features for cost-effective integration into automated systems.
The technology is proven and tested and guarantees a high degree of economic efficiency as reworking is minimized and set-up costs are eliminated.
The FormCutter Plus enables cut-outs of complex workpiece geometries with the highest precision. Especially for agile robot applications in the automotive industry, it convinces with best cutting quality.
The FormCutter Plus is a tool system consisting of an X/Y-axis system and a cutting head with a Z-axis. It is usually attached to a robot arm. The robot positions the system above the machining point and then starts the cutting process. The FormCutter Plus system guides the cutting head through the programmed geometry and generates a high-precision cutout. The cutting movement is many times more precise and takes much less time than a robot could do it.
Classical applications in the automotive industry are the laser cutting of antenna holes or roof railing holes in the vehicle body. But also in truck production, there are a lot of design specific holes and recesses.
3D laser cutting systems are often integrated into complex production lines. They work under demanding environmental conditions. Plant operators place high demands on the stability and ease of operation of the cutting systems. A long service life of the FormCutter Plus, its slim design in the front area, and the easily accessible media connections in the upper system area are attractive features for integration into new or existing automated systems.
