IPG Photonic's Multi-Axis Workcell

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

IPG’s Multi-axis Laser Workcell is a highly cost-efficient tool for
cutting, drilling and welding a wide range of metal components,
enclosures and fabrications. Configurable with our high efficiency
CW lasers or our high peak power QCW lasers, the Multi-axis workcell
provides fast processing of even highly reflective materials. Featuring
rugged industrial construction, the system includes a granite table and
superstructure for thermal and mechanical stability. Systems are easily
programmed for maximum tool flexibility.

Designed for production parts processing, the Standard Multi-axis Workcell has high-precision stages and X-Y travel of 500 x 300 mm. For customers with smaller parts, the Compact Multi-axis provides a lower-cost solution with a smaller footprint while the Micro machine is a bench-top unit optimized as a production processing workcell for small precision parts. Each system type can be configured for cutting, drilling or welding by choosing the appropriate IPG processing head.

Cutting & Drilling

IPG’s range of lasers and laser processing heads allows configuration of the Multi-axis Workcell for fast cutting of all metals, including steel, aluminum, titanium,copper and brass. The unit’s low-mass head design and high-force motors enable high-speed production.

Welding

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.

Processing Heads

IPG’s D30 and D50 welding heads have a wide range of options for matching beam profile to processing requirements. The heads include on-axis vision systems and programmed control of the process gas.
