Robotic CO2 Laser Cutting

Laser Cut Plastic and Other Materials for Automotive Parts

Laser cut plastic and other non-metal 3D parts in automotive production. Meet production volumes quickly and process glass, leather, metals, plastics, rubber, textiles and wood with a versatile robotic laser cutting cell. 

Achieve precise results at a higher speed than with traditional manufacturing methods like waterjet and routing systems. Our compact CO2 laser sources with patented CERAMICORE® technology can easily be integrated into automated solutions.

Our CERAMICORE® technology exceeds the performance of conventional CO2 lasers. The unique ceramic core ensures that the laser gas is hermetically sealed inside the tube. This eliminates metal contamination from electrodes typically used in glass or metal tube laser designs that cause loss of power over time.
