PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT INTRODUTION

Coherent Meta 5C is not only a flatbed Laser Cutting machine but also flexible CO2 laser machine for cutting and engraving of acrylic, wood, and other organic materials, as well as thin metals.

 

This flatbed laser cutter delivers a unique combination of:

  • Compact physical size
  • Low operating cost
  • Ease-of-use
  • High operational versatility

 

This makes it useful for processing a broad mix of materials, ranging from metals and plastics, to organic materials like leather, textiles, or wood. Rapid switching between jobs without the downtime of lengthy setup supports economical production of lot sizes from single units to volumes of over 1000 pieces.

 

FEATURES

The META 5C laser cutting machine integrates:

  • 250 W or 450 W CO2 laser
  • CNC controller
  • Beam delivery system,
  • Assist gas delivery system
  • Laser cutting head

 

All factors contained in a highly compact frame with a table size of 4’ x 4’ (1.2 m x 1.2 m).

 

The higher power model is capable of cutting and marking metals, such as stainless steel, mild steel, and aluminum. Both models readily cut, mark, and engrave a wide range of non-metal materials, such as wood, plastics, rubber, thin films, composites, and other organics, in thicknesses of up to 1.25” (31.75 mm). The job files can be supplied to the system in DXF, DWG, AI, HPGL, Gerber, JPG, BMP or TIF format. These files are then converted to a machine control file with the appropriate laser power settings and cutting speeds for optimized production.

 

Material can be rapidly loaded into the machine, and is held in place by a vacuum bed. An integrated smart vision system identifies fiducial marks on the work piece. These enable cutting that’s referenced to existing features on material regardless of its orientation in the machine, thus eliminating the need to position material with high precision. The software can even scale or distort the cutting pattern to correct for any dimensional changes in the material from the originally specified values.

 

Flexible, High-Speed Precision

The META 5C is a versatile solution for precision cutting of a broad mix of materials, ranging from thin metals to non-metal materials like plastics and organics, including leather, textiles, and wood (up to 31.75 mm).

Simple user interface  

The simple user interface and CAM software simplify work setup, increase productivity, and provide greater file development flexibility

Various environments and markets 

This versatile CO2 laser cutting system finds its way into a broad variety of environments and markets including defense, point of sale displays, electronics, white goods, medical devices, consumer displays, job shops, and R&D labs (commercial, academic, and governmental)
