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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
