The ULTRA R9000 platform offers laser material processing for a wide range of materials. It is designed and ideally suited for material processing in manufacturing, research and development, academic research, and prototyping environments. With its unique modular architecture, customizable solutions can be easily reconfigured with a wide array of options for enhancing performance, capability, and safety to complete the perfect solution to meet present and future business needs.The ULTRA R9000 platform has a materials processing envelope of 48 x 24 in (1219 x 610 mm), with support for materials with a thickness up to 12 in (305 mm). Configure the customizable ULTRA R9000 platform with up to two laser sources consisting of two interchangeable CO2 lasers or one CO2 laser and one fiber laser. When the platform is configured with two lasers users can take advantage of MultiWave Hybrid™ technology enabling up to two of three wavelengths from 9.3 µm, 10.6 µm, and 1.06 µm – to be simultaneously combined into a single coaxial beam. Each spectral component of the beam is independently controlled and can be modulated in real time.Major features and options include multiple laser support, rapid laser beam positioning, precision material-independent autofocus, controllable laser power density, automation interface, multi-camera vision & registration, over temperature detection, and support for fire suppression.
A patent pending feature that provides an augmented reality user interface by superimposing design files on images of the material placed on the material support surface and captured by multiple cameras built into the laser system.
The AR user interface facilitates precise alignment of design files using controls that allow the design file to be positioned, rotated and scaled with real time visual feedback made possible through advanced machine vision algorithms.
This feature also supports traditional camera registration work flow using printed registration marks.
A patent pending feature that provides the unique ability to control laser power densities while maintaining a high degree of alignment accuracy of the focal plane with the material surface as well as a Gaussian beam distribution.
Power Densities: 1X (Available), 4X (Included) or 13X (Available) for 10.6 μm and 9.3 μm wavelengths; 52X for 1.06 μm Fiber wavelength (Included).
Normalized power density (watts/cm2) = power density coefficient x 103 x average laser power (watts). Normalized power density is the power of the material processing laser(s) divided by the area of the focal spot measured at 1/e2.
A built-in aluminum honeycomb work surface designed to keep materials stationary and in focus during laser processing. Reduces back reflection and enables exhaust of laser processing byproducts from underneath materials. Includes a full-field masking material dispenser.
Configurable using Machined Aluminum Tiles, Material Support Pins and Vacuum Booster.
