New Tube Cutter Provides Unrivaled Edge Quality

Monrovia, CA – Amada Miyachi America Inc., a leading manufacturer of laser welding, marking, cutting and micro machining equipment and systems, announces its updated Sigma Laser Tube Cutter, which can be used with both microsecond fiber and femtosecond disk  lasers. The new cutting system provides unrivalled edge quality for both metals and plastics, making it ideal for medical device applications, including a wide range of tubes and stents. With 3 and 4 axes motion options, and the ability to cut tubes with diameters from 0.2 to 25 millimeters, the Sigma is ideal for both wet and dry cutting. It features an automated tube loader option and a 22-inch graphic user interface (GUI) on a swing arm.

The Sigma Laser Tube Cutter allows users to maximize throughput with high speed direct drive integrated X and Theta “lathe” axes stages. Featuring 2, 3, and 4 axes options, the tube cutter can be configured to the specific cutting application for both on and off axis cut geometries. The lathe stages are mounted directly to a granite base, while the vertical and horizontal stages are mounted to a granite gantry secured to the granite base.

Two different laser source options are available. The microsecond fiber laser offers excellent beam quality and high pulse repetition rates for high speed precision cutting. The femtosecond disk laser provides best in class cut quality using cold ablation cutting to produce unrivalled edge quality that significantly reduces post processing costs.

The Sigma can be used for both wet and dry cutting. Small tube diameters cut with the fiber laser are cooled using a self-contained water system that features flow and level sensors to monitor operation. The lathe stages and all connections are sealed for use in wet cutting.

Enclosure options include Class 1 systems in both open and closed frame, and Class 4 systems, customized to specific integration, access and loading speed requirements.
