  • New cutting head with adjustable x/y process gas nozzle and easy change of protection glass
  • Off-center cuts and engravings can be made in just one process step
  • Workpiece removal even during the cutting process
  • Fiber and / or femto laser can be integrated into StarCut Tube
  • Human Machine Interface (HMI) with Security user access level, diagnostic and data logging for validated processes and user friendly operation
  • Sorter module adaptable
  • IQ / OQ for FDA documentation according to GMP

The up to 4-axes CNC laser cutting systems are the solution for fully-automated cutting of tube and flat material, especially for medical instruments and implants like stents and other high-precision parts. Frequently, the systems allow reducing numerous mechanical machining steps into a single laser processing routine.

With CNC-driven rotary-, x-, y- and z-axes and a solid granite machine set-up, even taper-free or offset cuts are as easy as ultra-precise processing of oval tubes or flat parts. A new tube loading module with a side-loading magazine for tubes of 2 to 20 mm diameter and up to 3 m length allows for fully-automated hands-off production.

 

The StarCut Tube can be powered with our ultrashort pulse laser StarFemto FX or fiber laser StarFiber FC  and achieves contour accuracies on the workpiece with better than +/- 5 ┬Ám. Femtosecond lasers allow cold laser cutting of almost all metals and low-melting biodegradable polymer materials for scaffolds.


Options:
Available as integration module with Autoloader StarFeed S and StarFeed L 


Typical applications for Medical Device Technology:
Laser cutting of stents & scaffolds, heart valves, endoscope & surgical instruments, hypotubes & guide wires
