Medtech, Laser Processing
In medtech, reliability is of paramount importance. This also applies to the robustness of the processes. However, since cost pressure is increasing in this industry as well, productivity must increase and production must be faster. Of course, with the same or better quality - a good starting point for the Triamec Motion solution.
In stent production, the post-processing time after laser cutting is significantly reduced if the laser cut edges are clean. This is achieved if the servo drive keeps to the target path as precisely as possible without path deviations on the one hand, and cleanly compensates for any malfunctions on the other. Both require very stiff and fast control, as is typical for Triamec servo drives.
To control the laser, Triamec Servo Drives can output a PWM signal proportional to the path speed. Alternatively the Triamec I/O controllers can be used to generate the laser PWM signal.
