LASER MICRO MACHINE GL.smart
The laser turning machine
The newly developed GL.smart laser system with up to 16 simultaneous axes is the all-purpose weapon for laser micro machining. This machine with its compact design offers the possibility of combination machining including laser drilling, turning and cutting, along with increased output by means of parallel processing on two stations. Integrating a bar feeder as the loading unit and a six-axis robot for removing the finished parts makes the production line fully autonomous.
All heat sources in the machine are actively cooled with water, including the direct drives of all axes. The areas of application for the GL.smart range from machining flat components up to a maximum size of 40x40x10 mm³ to machining rotationally symmetrical components to a diameter of up to 12 mm and a maximum length of 200 mm and extending to 3+2 axis machining of components measuring 30x30x30 mm³.
The deep integration of our components into the control system enables online monitoring of the production processes, as well as efficient service, thus fulfilling all the requirements of a production machine.

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 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.
Thanks to the modular design, the GL.machines can be expanded with options and therefore adapted precisely to future applications. The following hardware options are available.
