Our StarCut Tube laser cutting systems comprise of very specialized solutions for cutting medical implants to highly flexible all-purpose platform solutions like the Cube. All systems (StarCut Tube / StarCut Tube SL) have a complete solution design. Depending on the application, you can choose from our wide range of laser sources to be integrated into the complete solution. High precision CNC controlled axes and a high performance, flexible control concept are the basis for customized optimized solutions for manual to fully automated manufacturing.
The StarCut Tube systems are 4-axes CNC laser cutting solutions for fully-automated cutting of tube and flat material, especially for medical instruments and implants like stents and other high-precision parts. Frequently, the systems allow reducing numerous mechanical machining steps into a single laser processing routine.
With CNC-driven rotary-, x-, y- and z-axes and a solid granite machine set-up, even taper-free or offset cuts are as easy as an ultra-precise processing of oval tubes or flat parts. A new tube loading module with a side-loading magazine for tubes of 2 to 20 mm diameter and up to 3 m length allows for fully-automated hands-off production.
The StarCut Tube can be powered with our ultrashort pulse laser StarFemto FX or fiber laser StarFiber FC and achieves contour accuracies on the workpiece with better than +/- 5 µm. Femtosecond lasers allow cold laser cutting of almost all metals and low-melting biodegradable polymer materials for scaffolds.
Available as integration module with Autoloader StarFeed S and StarFeed L
Typical applications for medical device technology such as laser cutting of stents & scaffolds, heart valves, endoscope & surgical instruments, hypotubes & guide wires
