Laser Stent and Tube Cutter with New Features

Amada Miyachi America Inc. has announced a comprehensive system wide upgrade to its Sigma Laser Stent and Tube Cutter, which can be configured with either microsecond fiber or femtosecond lasers. Featuring 3 or 4 axes of motion, wet and dry cutting, an automated tube loader option and easy access to sub-assemblies, the updated system can cut stents and tubes with diameters from 0.2 to 25 mm. The operator-friendly control software features a 22" graphic user interface (GUI) on a swing arm.

The Sigma system has been designed for efficient production and practical operation. New features include an open architecture with enhanced workspace access and a sliding door that provides quick access for part unloading and set-up changes. All service components are now on drawers that can be easily accessed. The system also features high-precision high-acceleration linear drive stages that optimize cycle time, a 2" Z-axis and optional lineal stage cross axis for off-axis cutting, and a smart water supply system that controls and monitors flow. A single-screen operator interface facilitates ease of use with password-protected access levels. The toolpath can be optimized using either CAGILA CNC programming software or another CAD/CAM post-processing software.

Two different laser source options are available. The microsecond fiber laser offers enhanced beam quality and high pulse repetition rates for high-speed precision cutting. The femtosecond laser uses cold ablation cutting to produce improved edge quality that reduces post-processing costs.

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.
