Laser Ecosystem - Dynamics Through Full Digital Control
Robotic Laser Systems have traditionally been very complex and difficult to setup and control. The latest digitally-controlled robotic laser systems are fully connected to all components of the laser ecosystem. Advanced network control provides the intelligent connection to the various system components including the laser, processing head, chiller, sensors, and other peripherals. All components are controlled and monitored through the robot teach pendant with menu selections for status updates and a complete set of programming instructions that offer the ease of use and direct control of various laser processes. The high speed direct digital interface allows for accurate motion control and laser process coordination for increased quality and throughput. The software provides easy setup, data collection, and diagnostic information through a single point of control providing the latest Industrial IoT with advanced intelligent functions that manage up-time and produce high-quality laser processing at throughput.
