CUBE – The New All-purpose Laser Station

Supplier: LRM Technologies

Most different laser sources can be integrated into a compact and cost-efficient solution for cutting, welding, structuring or marking in manual and semi- automated manufacturing.


ROFIN provides an extraordinarily wide range of laser sources of different technologies such as solid-state, fiber or diode lasers. In addition, ROFIN offers a comprehensive optics and fiber kit for distributing, guiding and focussing the laser beam as well as for process viewing via camera.

The universal housing concept of the CUBE now allows efficient integration of these components into complete and individual configurable, systems ranging from standard solutions to highly specialized research applications in research.

The strong point about the CUBE is its high flexibility, realised by its combination of housing and door construction together with different axes and optics component options.

An example may be the combined use of galvo scanner head and positioning axes for fast, exact and large-area processing, or robot feeding by using the automatic doors. The solid precision milled system base guarantees highly accurate workpiece processing.

The hood of the housing which can be opened wide, makes setting and adjustments easy. In production, fast opening and closing doors for loading and unloading - from three sides if required - allow for short cycle times.

Thus, the CUBE can be perfectly set up for both manual loading and automated feeding via assembly line, robot or lifting stages. The integrated laser control RCU (Rofin Control Unit) controls the entire process – without the necessity for additional controllers.

The RCU controls the laser parameters, (real-time control of laser pulses, online-process viewing and analysis, pulse-to-pulse stability), the galvo scanner head (for welding, marking and structuring applications) and the motorized axes (as positioning axis in the PLC procedure or as linearly interpolated process axis).

The freely positioned central central touch screen makes the handling of the CUBE very comfortable. It also allows setting, editing and choosing layouts and PLC procedures. In addition, the control of the entire process and the communication with PLC, e.g. for robot feeding, is possible.

Laser source, beam delivery, optical system, galvo head or fixed optics – with the CUBE, the customer gets a complete system which is individually tailored according to his application. The workstation comes in two different basic configurations: as micro- CUBE or as marking-CUBE, for cutting, welding and structuring or for marking applications, respectively.
