Cold Micro-Machining of Tough Materials

The Diamond™ Series laser achieves surface precision in all depth ranges with continuous in-process monitoring and surface qualities up to 0.8 um (0.00003 in). It has a swiveling monitor for easy setup, yet positions flat against the machine surface to save space.(Click on photo to enlarge it)
The Diamond™ Series from Laser Machining Technologies is the most affordable micro-machining laser for cold micro-machining of 3D forms, 2D shapes and PCD, CVD-D, CBN, tungsten carbide, rubies, natural and man-made diamonds, and many other exotic and hard-to-machine materials.

Robotic 3D Laser Cutting

Jenoptik’s laser arm axis movements are 30 to 60 percent quicker than the norm and deliver a much shorter tact time compared to conventional metal processing laser robots. In the field of 3D metal processing, this system delivers a technological competitive advantage for the automotive industry, white goods fabrication and reservoir construction.(Click on photo to enlarge it)
The Jenoptik-Votan® BIM 3D metal cutting machine uses a laser robot arm that is unique in that the optical fiber is located only in the stationary robot shoulder and the laser beam path is totally integrated.
