StarCut Tube SL

High Precision Laser Cutting with High Throughput Rate



 The compact StarCut Tube SL is a high-presision laser system for cutting the tubes. The newly designed system combines maximum productivity with the smallest footprint on the market.



    ・ High-precision tube cutting system

    ・ Smallest footprint in the market

    ・ Tube diameter up to 30 mm

    ・ Struts smaller than a human hair

    ・ Automatic tube feeder for dry and wet cutting

    ・ Wet cutting with integrated water circulation system

    ・ Viewing via stereo microscope and/or camera

    ・ Massive and absolutely robust mineral cast set-up

    ・ Only 3 side accesibility necessary (minimizes production floor due to optimization of floor                 space required)

    ・ Sorter module adaptable

    ・ Individual unloading system available

    ・ Lowest cost per stent for medical technology

    ・ human Machine Interface (HMI) with Security user access level, diagnostic and data logging              for validated processes and user friendly operation

    ・ IQ/OQ for FDA documentation according to GMP

The up to 4-axes CNC laser cutting 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 routine.

With CNC-driven rotary-, x-, y- and z-axes and a solid granite machine set-up, even taper-free or offset cuts are as easy as ultra-precise processing of 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 length 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


Typical applications for Medical Device Technology:

Laser cutting of stents & scaffolds, heart valves, endscope & surgical instruments, hypotubes & guide wires
