GL.ultra laser machine

The GL.ultra as the largest laser machine of the GL. series offers a wide range of laser processing options with automated solutions, maximum laser on-time and therefore highest output with short cycle time. The integration of two 5-axis machining stations in one machine, as well as the possibility of integrating several laser systems in parallel, guarantee customers maximum investment security. A large number of interchangeable modules round off the new machine concept. On this occasion, the established advantages of “Hirth gearing” are consistently relied on in order to keep the changeover times as short as possible. In the course of the optional module selection, for example fixed or scanner optics can be installed that are compatible with all commercially available UKP laser sources. The patented axle kinematics in combination with two specially developed rotary and swivel units (X/Y-movable) offer maximum machining flexibility. The active water cooling of the drive and guide components and the granite slide guarantees the highest possible temperature stability. The innovative technology of GL.ultra is rounded off by the optical highlight of a sealed, black glass enclosure.


  • two 5-axis machining stations in one machine

  • synchronous or sequential processing for highest precision optionally with fixed optics and/or scanner

  • patented kinematics

  • optics module change via Hirth toothing (repeatability <= 1μm)

  • wear-free and highly dynamic linear drive technology in all axes

  • economic advantage due to reduced investment and operating costs (lower energy and space consumption)

  • separation of machine kinematics and electrical engineering configurable

  • innovative machine housing in glass

  • user-friendly due to ergonomic operating units

With GL.control you have the possibility to control all sub systems of the machine and coordinate them. The operator of the machine can program all of the tasks in one single user interface. The controlling software GL.control is basic equipment of the GL.ultra.


The modular design of our GL.control software allows the machine control system to be expanded with a range of functions. Thus the user is able to adapt the software configuration to their requirements.
