MONROVIA, Calif., Sept. 12, 2012 — The Sigma five-axis fiber laser cutting system unveiled by Miyachi Unitek Corp. enables 3-D cut paths. High-speed, high-precision, position-based firing laser power control and cutting features make it suitable for use in cutting thin metals, especially those used in precision medical tools. The flexible system configuration of a two-axis rotary assembly, mounted to an X-Y stage, maximizes laser on-part accessibility, system simplicity and tooling path efficiency. It accommodates thin metals with unique cut paths, nonsymmetrical features, beveled edges, off-axis cutting, compound angles and internal cut radii of <50 μm. Linear motors and high-torque direct-drive rotary axes have been configured to provide the best performance for speed and quality, while maintaining part dimensional accuracy.
