Laser robot

ROBOCUT SERIES

The ROBOCUT laser robot is the ideal device for processing 
plastic components and thin metal sheets.

  • Outstanding component accessibility
  • Reliable and economical 
  • Laser power of 100 - 1000 W

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FAST, INTUITIVE USAGE

There are several laser robots on the market, but this
unique combination of laser and robot is only avail-
able from ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY. This combination pro-
vides the ideal tool for processing plastic and metal
components.

The machine is based on an IRB 4400 ABB robot, with the
patented laser axis mounted on it.

The laser robot comes with a laser power ranging from
100 – 1000 W in order to meet your various needs.

The main area of application for the laser robot is cutting

plastic molding components for automobiles, such as pillar cov-
erings, door modules, trunk linings and exterior covering compo-
nents. It can cut almost any type of plastic, such as PP, PE,
ABS-PC, Plexiglas and TPO films, as well as all kinds of textiles –
with the best cutting quality and speed. Combination materials
are ideally suited for processing with the laser robot. It can eco-
nomically process steel panels up to 3 mm thick, and stainless-
steel components up to 2 mm. The unrivaled flexibility of the laser
robot offers you new possibilities for processing components. 

Further specifications and information can be found in the following 
points, which introduce the product in detail.


LASER-CUTTING NOZZLE

LASER-CUTTING NOZZLE

The extremely streamlined design of the laser-cutting nozzle 
makes the components very accessible. The process gas supply 
is provided through channels in the nozzle, which eliminates
external hoses. Depending on the task, we offer cutting nozzles
with a variety of focal lengths

The optical cutting head has a removal slot to allow quick disassembly
for maintenance work.


RF NETWORK COMPONENT

RF NETWORK COMPONENT

The RT network component integrated into the robot offers 
significant advantages over conventional systems, since
it completely eliminates the load on the RF cable. The entire
RF network component can be switched out quickly and
easily for servicing.


LENS POLLUTION MONITOR

LENS POLLUTION MONITOR

The lens pollution monitor can be integrated into the axis as an option. 

The display on the user interface automatically indicates when the lens needs
to be cleaned. 


AXEIS 4 AND 5

AXEIS 4 AND 5

The ROBOCUT is the only laser robot to offer two infinitely
rotating axes, numbers 4 and 5. This special feature
provides outstanding accessibility for the components and
much shorter cycle times for many applications.

The mirrors are recessed to prevent a collision with the
beam controllers.


LASERS

LASERS

The CO2 lasers are based on a sealed-off-construction that allows the lasers to
be operated for more than 15,000 hours without changing the gas. The inte-
grated low-output diode laser makes it easier to calibrate the beam and is an enormous help for  programming of the components.


PRECISION

PRECISION

One of the most important requirements for laser-cutting applications is the
robot’s path accuracy. The stable structure of the robot and the “dynamic
model” software module from ABB provides us with never-before-seen results
here. Especially at varying speeds, it achieves very good path repeatability.


SCANNER

SCANNER

The integrated scanner (laser beam deflection through two extremely lightweight
mirrors) covers a processing surface with a diameter of 150 mm when the robot
is at rest. The robot universally positions the scanner unit at the components. This 
allows all kinds of contours to be cut and labeled with the greatest degree of pre-
cision and speed. When cutting a circle, it can achieve a concentricity of +/- 0.02 mm.


DISTANCE SENSOR

DISTANCE SENSOR

The patent-pending distance sensor, which was specially developed for the area of
metal cutting, is manufactured jointly with the Precitec company. Precitec is a
well-known manufacturer and market leader in the area of distance sensors for laser-
cutting applications. This guarantees industrial standards and high quality.

Integrating the distance sensor into our laser robot creates a compact structure,
with a very short distance between the robot’s center of rotation and the
processing point on the component. This allows for outstanding component
accessibility, very good path repeatability and fast reorientation.


SWIVEL NOZZLE

SWIVEL NOZZLE

The swivel nozzle for the scanner represents a logical development
in our products. The patent-pending swivel nozzle offers both scanner and
nozzle operations in a single system concept.

The component can be switched from nozzle to scanner operations
within one second, which ensures extremely fast cycle times. The specially
designed air supply guarantees a long life span for the lenses.
