Scalable Solution for Industrial Laser Processing

Fast Configuration & Implementation – Exceptionel Contouring – High Throughput

Today, requirements of machine builders in precision automation, such as laser processing cannot only aim at achieving the desired specifications at a purely component level. In order to reach their desired high performance, a coordinated and harmonized design and operation of the overall system is required. For example, laser processes must produce tiny geometries in the micrometer range while enabling consistent, accurate and dynamic machining in multiple dimensions. With the standardized integrated approach for multi-axis systems, the X-417 supports machine builders to quickly configure and integrate the appropriate requirements, helping them to optimize their design and development time and ultimately become more competitive and able to expedite on their customers’ and individual demands.
