Platform Enables Automation in Laser Stent Cutting
Wed, 08/05/2009 - 10:45am
LaserLathe is a completely integrated single-system motion platform for automated production operation in laser stent cutting. The system integrates several application-specific components, including linear and rotary positioning mechanisms, a variety of work piece holding devices, powerful servo drives, and a user-friendly, feature-packed control system. This combination results in higher productivity and lower maintenance along with greater precision at a lower cost. Built with a dedicated two-axis mechanical motion platform, the platform integrates a linear X-axis and rotary motion. Both positioning systems utilize direct drive, brushless servomotors with non-contacting, high-resolution encoders for smooth motion and precise positioning. The linear axis is specially equipped with a servo ironcore motor.
