Drilling, cutting, engraving, and more
The Coherent Powerline C is a CO2 laser-based sub-system which uses CAN for communication. It is suitable for precision drilling, cutting, scribing, structuring, marking, and engraving of a wide range of materials.
The wide range of materials to engrave includes organics, such as polymers, paper, fabric, leather, vulcanized rubber or wood, as well as glass and ceramics. The sub-system incorporates a sealed CO2 laser (available output powers of 180 W, 250 W, and 450 W), with a choice of scanning and beam delivery optics. The product combines a scanner head, laser power, and beam quality, as well as control software. The company’s Starflex software enables the Powerline C to operate while also providing sophisticated process options. For example, a graphical user interface enables straightforward layout of cutting or marking paths, assignment of laser parameters, laser triggering (including offsets), and display of workload or process time.
The sub-system is housed in a 19-inch rack mount, uses a regular interface for network connections under Windows 10, and communicates using CAN network technology. Coherent premiered the product at the Labelexpo Europe 2019 and Coiltech 2019 fairs.
