Press Releases

Aerotech has introduced a Ball-Screw Stage with Linear Encoder, a compact, high-performance linear positioning stage featuring smooth travel combined with high accuracy, repeatability and positioning resolution capability to 25nm.

Applications include optics positioning, z-axis positioning of sensors in surface metrology, and in general purpose high-precision alignment. Quick multi-axis configurations are made easily with other MPS linear and rotary stages using the adapter brackets and mounting compatibility inherent in the entire MPS stage family.

Stiefelmayer Lasertechnik has launched its S Laser that combines the precision of micro laser technology with the speed of macro laser technology.

In the laser system, all steel and aluminium was replaced by carbon in all moving parts, and granite axles were introduced to guarantee stability and precision where high speeds are achieved with linear direct drives. Furthermore, highly reflective non-ferrous metals can be processed by using a fibre laser. 

Trumpf has released its five-axis TruLaser Station 5005, a machine for welding mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, non-ferrous metals and plastics. It is suitable for applications in medical and electrical sectors and throughout the precision engineering industry in general.

The machine has a small footprint of 800 x 900mm2, an upward-sliding door, and integrated dust collector. Depending on the application, it can be specified with the Trumpf disk, fibre, pulsed and diode laser with an output of up to 1kW.

Creaform has launched its new VXmodel software, released two new versions of its Go!Scan white light 3D scanner, and updated its HandyScan 3D laser scanner.

The VXmodel software is fully integrated with VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform. This eliminates the need for design professionals to open, learn and use third-party software for most applications. With VXmodel acting as an integrated bridge, users have all the tools they need to prepare their 3D-Scan files for CAD or 3D-print solutions in one intuitive application.

ULT has introduced LAS 260, a new system for extracting and filtering harmful particles in laser marking and ultra-short pulse laser processing. The system provides safety for automated and semi-automated production processes to be used as a stand-alone or inline solution.

Rofin has introduced a newly designed next-generation human machine interface on its four-axis laser cutting system StarCut Tube.

The new HMI integrates all user interface components which are required during normal operation on a single screen. All information about system status and production progress is clearly arranged. User input and parameter modification is limited to certain designated fields.

Eurolaser has released an automatic shuttle table to allow the laser cutting process to be continued with no downtime

Gooch & Housego manufactures a range of Fiber coupled Acousto-Optic devices for use in pulsed fiber laser amplifier systems, and has now produced visible wavelength versions for microscopy and instrumentation applications. The G&H Visible Wavelength Fiber-Q is based on the company’s infra-red fibre coupled products and incumbent visible free space solutions.

Laser 2000 has introduced the Hybrid Hexapod from ALIO Industries. With the combination of serial and parallel kinematic axes, it is possible to achieve high precision and dynamic, as well as a flexible combination of travel ranges and dimensions

Bystronic has added two functionalities to its BySprint Fiber laser machines to increase periods of unattended running
