Coherent Launches ExactCut — First in a New Series of Precision Laser Machines




Santa Clara, CA, February 19, 2019 – The first offering in Coherent’s new ExactSeries of fine materials processing equipment, ExactCut micromachining systems combine intelligence, integration, and interconnectivity for precision cutting of metals, alloys, sapphire, polycrystalline diamond (PCD), and ceramics.  To significantly reduce integration and qualification time, ExactCut ships with pre-programmed process parameters for the desired application.  It’s a ready-to-use solution for demanding manufacturing applications for medical devices, electronics, automotive, and horology. ExactCut also delivers high flexibility for multipurpose job shops.

ExactCut systems combine the latest generation of pulsed fiber laser sources (300 W / 3 kW pulse peak), a high stability granite motion module, and a sophisticated human interface.  The intelligent and intuitive software simplifies the entry of parameter and process recipes; this is particularly valuable for short or prototype production runs and rapid changeovers.  The ExactCut is designed for easy integration into high volume production, with a variety of interfaces for specialty tooling, rotary or linear stages, part handling robotics, and conveyor belts.

Backed by decades of applications expertise of the combined Coherent and Rofin organizations, ExactCut systems also feature sophisticated remote diagnostics and predictive maintenance, and are supported by Coherent’s worldwide service infrastructure.
