CO2 laser-based sub-system for precision drilling, cutting, scribing, marking and engraving of a wide range of materials
PowerLine C is a CO2 laser-based sub-system that offers an unmatched combination of convenience, versatility and economy for precision drilling, cutting, scribing, structuring, marking and engraving of a wide range of materials. These include organics, such as polymers, paper, fabric, leather, vulcanized rubber or wood, as well as glass and ceramics.
The PowerLine C mates a high reliability, long lifetime, sealed CO2 laser (available output powers of 180 W, 250 W and 450 W), together with a choice of scanning and beam delivery optics, all in a compact, modular package. The combination of a fast scanner head, high laser power and excellent beam quality enables high processing speeds. Even complex, on-the-fly applications are supported with exceptional precision and quality.
Coherent’s StarFlex software makes the PowerLine C easy to operate while also providing sophisticated process options. For example, a graphical user interface enables straightforward layout of cutting or marking paths, assignment of laser parameters, laser triggering (including offsets), and display of workload or process time, to name just a few. The PowerLine C has also been designed with ease of integration in mind. It is housed in a 19” rack mount, uses a standard interface for network connections under Windows 2007, and communicates using standard CAN bus technology.
