Thank you for your interest. 

 

An IPG Laser Processing Specialist will be pleased to assist with your query. Please provide basic contact details below and indicate a time when it will be convenient for us to call you. Please indicate the subject closest to your topic of interest from the dropdown so that we can have the most appropriate specialist contact you.

 

Multi-axis Workcells

IPG’s Multi-axis Workcell is an ideal processing system for manufacturers of medical devices, automotive components, electrical and electronic enclosures /packages and small appliance parts.

With three base platform sizes and standardized modules, these systems are readily configurable for your specific applications, enabling you to invest in processing capabilities optimally matched to your needs.

 

The Multi-Axis workcells are designed, built and supported by IPG Photonics, the World leader in fiber laser technology

With rugged industrial construction, these systems include a granite table for thermal and mechanical stability. High-accuracy linear-drive motors and low-mass processing head are optimized for the rapid motions associated with high-speed small part machining.
  • The standard Multi-axis is configured with enhanced accuracy stages up to 500 mm travel, while the Multi-axis Compact provides 300 mm travel and is offered at a lower cost for less demanding applications.
  • The Multi-axis Micro is a bench-top unit that is ideal for multiple-station production facilities or limited space R&D environments.
IPG Wobble & Seam Tracking Head

IPG FLW D50 Wobble Head

IPG’s Wobble welding heads are designed to provide the highest laser power handling capability in the industry in a completely sealed and lightweight package.

 

These process heads provide effortless integration with IPG lasers and offers improved weld quality and better visual finish. Available in multiple configurations with the broadest focus and collimator lens options, the Wobblers are the ultimate tool to weld a multitude of different material types and thicknesses.

Available Shapes

 IPG's Wobble Head Shapes

Shape: Infinity

Amplitude: 2 mm Diameter

Frequency: 300 Hz Wobble

Weld Speed: 3.5 m/min

Compared to conventional (laser) welding methods, welding with the wobble option results in superior weld quality. Wobbling also helps to overcome consistency issues related to backreflections when welding materials like aluminum, copper, etc.

Fiber Lasers for Metal Welding, Drilling & Cutting

IPG's fiber laser cutting machines

IPG’s Multi-axis Workcell is compatible with any IPG fiber laser up to a maximum average power of 6,000 W. Typically, applications require significantly lower power, and IPG offers a unique selection of laser types to perfectly match your application.

YLR-150/1500 Example

The precision part positioning of IPG’s Multi-axis Workcell combined with the high peak power QCW laser provides a highly flexible welding system compatible with all metal types. The highly efficient QCW lasers feature an adjustable output power with no changes in beam profile or quality, allowing versatility across all applications. The Multi-axis software provides advanced programmability of pulse duration and frequency characteristics with dynamic laser power control providing optimized, repeatable welding quality for all jobs.

  

IPG’s quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber lasers are ideal for spot welding, seam welding & drilling in the long pulse operation mode. These air-cooled, compact units are substantially more cost-effective than conventional YAG lasers due to >30% wall-plug efficiencies and maintenance-free operation.
Request a Welded, Cut, Drilled or Marked Sample

Tell us about your application, whether it’s welding, cutting, drilling or marking, and we can send you a sample part produced on a Multi-axis system. Alternatively, let’s talk about running one of your parts.

 

For commonly used metals, we probably have the raw sheet in stock. For any exotic alloys or highly reflective parts you are having difficulty with, you might want to send us the material and let us show how IPG’s laser processing  compares to alternate machining  or joining techniques.

Multi-axis Motion Systems

laser precision processing via Multi-Acis Motion Systems

 

The modular design of the Multi-axis product family allows the user to select the best combination of motion systems for the job.

 

Up to four synchronized motion axis are available: X, Y, Z and rotation. Depending on the orientation of the rotary stage, the part can rotate about either the X or Z axis. Additionally, a non-synchronized option is available to provide tilting of the laser processing head (rotating around the Y axis.)

 

IPG offers a wide range of motion system components that can be mixed and matched to suit any application. Why pay for performance beyond what’s needed when you can buy exactly what is needed?

Talk with a Laser Processing Expert

 

As your partner for precision laser processing systems, IPG is here to provide advice and guidance along the way. Sometimes it is helpful for the engineer to be able to visualize the job being discussed. Where this is the case, consider sending a DXF or even a simple sketch along with your question.

 

 

Frequent Discussion Topics Include:  

  • How to select a laser for a specific application
  • How to select a process head configuration
  • How to process highly reflective materials
  • Fiber laser vs CO2 laser processing
  • Process speed vs laser power
  • Automating laser processing operations
  • IPG assistance with process development
