Original Press Release:
CombiLine Advanced: A Solid Laser Marking Platform from Rofin
20th June 2008
Rofin-Baasel has always embraced the philosophy of producing not only laser sources but also wherever possible providing a complete solution. This commitment to practicality and ease of use has resulted in many standard systems and solutions being developed for a wide range of applications and industries. The latest innovation of this kind to be launched by Rofin is the CombiLine Advanced, an all purpose laser marking workstation.
The CombiLine Advanced is a robust and stable laser workstation designed for production of small and medium batch sizes. The system is available in two different configurations (WT) and (RT). The WT variant incorporates a static worktable which has a load capacity of up to 100kg, and can accommodate a work piece of 760mm x 500mm x 600mm in size.
The RT variant (Fig.1) is supplied with a fully integrated 800mm diameter rotary table system which has a load capacity of 10kg on each side. This concept enables the system to laser mark a component on one side of the table whilst the other side of the table can be unloaded and re-loaded during the laser processing cycle. This concept not only saves cycle time but also provides easy access for loading and unloading. The rotary table index time is an impressive 1.2 seconds, thus ensuring the maximum productivity from the system.
The CombiLine Advanced has a useful working envelope thanks to the 300mm of travel available for the laser head and beam deflection unit, from each of the integrated linear motion stages. The WT variant is supplied with 3 axes (X, Y & Z) whilst the RT variant has 2 axes (X & Z). The system can be further configured for even greater flexibility by adding one or more of the optional linear and rotary axes which are available. The addition of the rotary axis enables the system to laser mark around the circumference of cylindrical parts. With a wide choice of laser sources available from Rofin's extensive range, the system can be configured for a broad range of applications and materials.
Ergonomic and simple to operate
To ensure optimum working conditions and good ergonomics, the CombiLine Advanced is available configured either for seated or standing operation. The laser marking process can be monitored via the large 15" colour TFT touch screen monitor, which also contributes to ease of use for the operator. In addition, the integrated observation window offers a safe and direct view into the spacious operating area.
Designed with a small footprint to minimise floor space requirements, and with its extremely robust construction, the CombiLine Advanced is capable of producing high quality laser marks repeatably within an industrial environment.
Rofin offers a complete range of lasers including CO2, YAG, Vanadate and Fibre Lasers. Rofin also provides a wide range of products and solutions for laser cutting and welding applications.
