Programmable focusing optics

Share This Post

TRUMPF’s latest generation of its programmable focusing optics, the PFO 3D for laser scanner welding, cutting and drilling, features a larger work area, higher maximum laser power and enhanced electronics for increased accuracy.

 

The maximum work area of the laser is 20.8 x 30.7 in. (528 x 780 mm) in elliptical form with a Z stroke of up to ± 18.7 in. (475 mm). The maximum laser power is up to 8 kW. To minimize repositioning time and maximize performance in larger applications, a robot mounted PFO can be controlled to process “on the fly” through real time synchronization of the scanner axes and robot axes.

With advances such as the CalibrationLine function, the exact position of the focal point and the power of the laser beam can be determined. The Mirror Stabilization Program (MSP) corrects mirror positions measured in offset and gain, independent of temperature and humidity. The addition of the “wobble” feature improves material processing capabilities in bridging gaps, battery welding and creating repeating pattern for larger contact area with a small focus spot. These changes significantly improve repeatability and enable precise processing results in applications with extremely defined requirements.
