Laser Processing at Your Service
Aerotech serves the unique requirements of laser processing and laser machining applications by manufacturing high performance systems and components for laser cutting, laser marking, laser welding (including seam welding and hermetic seam welding), laser etching, and other laser machining and laser micromachining applications. Aerotech developments in the areas of mechanics, controls, software, and laser control have provided end users, systems integrators and OEMs with the best possible laser cutting, laser welding, laser etching, and laser marking systems available today.
Powerful yet flexible component-level solutions.
We've Listened to Our Customers
Our leadership in this industry has continued through the years by listening to the needs of our customer base. This valuable feedback has lead to the development of advanced laser cutting and laser marking features such as Position Synchronized Output for precise laser registration, hardcover sealed stage designs for long life and low maintenance of the laser cutting component, and sophisticated plotting and diagnostic utilities that enable the rapid debugging of process and motion parameters. Simply put, our laser cutting, laser welding, laser marking, and laser etching systems provide you with the lowest cost of ownership and the best return on your investment.
Motion subsystems to solve complicated challenges.
New developments in laser cutting and laser marking systems include the ability to seamlessly integrate PLC and vision capabilities with motion to provide the most comprehensive automation for your needs. Coupling these advanced software solutions with high performance direct-drive linear and rotary stages provides laser machine manufacturers with a solid base on which to build the highest throughput and most accurate machines in the laser processing industry. We offer complete solutions for 2D, 2.5D, and 3D laser cutting, laser welding, and other laser machining applications. Aerotech can supply a precision aligned, multi-axis, articulated system with micron-level rotary axis of intersection and arc-second orthogonality between axes.
Engineered solutions that offer world-class performance.
We have also developed products for specific applications such as cardiac pacemaker hermetic seam welding. An example is Aerotech’s HermeSys™, a holistic design that optimizes all aspects of the cardiac pacemaker hermetic seam welding process. Specialized mechanics are used to accurately position the cardiac pacemaker during the laser welding process. Onboard kinematics allow the programming of laser weld geometry in part space for rapid optimization of process parameters on the machine (no post-processing required). Finally, a reference design is available for an automated material handling system to ensure that the part load/unload cycle can keep pace with the optimized cardiac pacemaker laser welding process.
