The up to 4-axes CNC laser dutting systems are the solution for fully-automated cutting of tube   and flat material, especially for medical instruments and implants like stents and other high-precision parts.  Frequently, the systems allow reducing numerous mechanical machining steps into a single laser processing route.

Within CNC-driven rotary-, x-,y- and z-axes and  solid granite machine set-up, even taper-free or offset cuts are as easy as ultra-precise processing of oval tubes or oval tubes or flat parts.     A new tube loading module with a side-loading magazine for tubes of 2 to 20 mm diameter and up to 3 m kength allows for fully-automated hands-off production. 

The StarCut Tube can be powered with ROFIN's Ultrashort pulse laser StarFemto FX  or fiber laser StarFiber FC and achieves contour accuracies on the workpiece with better than +/- 5 µm.   Femtosecond lasers allow cold laser cutting of almost all metals and low-melting biodegradable polymer materials for scaffolds.



Available as integration module with Autoloader StarFeed S and StarFeed L
