OEM equipment makers, after-market job shop filter suppliers and industrial users with high consumptions of perforated metal filters, all can reduce filter-related costs with the LaserCube Driller.
Requiring minimum floorspace and only compressed air and electricity as utilities, the LaserCube Driller makes filter drilling easy and affordable and provides a cost-effective alternative for filter supplies.
Highly focusable 1070 nm laser beam couples easily and drills fast, even on reflective metals
Compact laser packaging allows the laser source to be mounted within the drilling workstation
Drilled hole sizes from 80 to 300 µm diameter on filter parts up to 1000 x 1000 mm size
LaserCube Driller is a highly productive system that produces parts up to 1 m in diameter, while having a footprint of only 3.0 x 3.9 m
The LaserCube Driller is designed for maximum reliability and minimal preventive maintenance – maximizing the time available to drill production parts.

In addition to the standard X-Y-Z axes and laser process head, there are several optional modules and accessories that may optimize the functionality of the system in your specific application. The most popular options are indicated below. Please contact IPG directly if you have additional requirements.
High-precision, high-speed rotary stage with continuous motion synchronized to X-Y-Z axes
Servo-driven rotary stage
Fully automated sheet load/unload module for full-shift unattended operation
Flexible Sheet Size: 24 x 24 up to 48 x 48 inch
Digital video camera, illuminator assembly and integrated software to visually align and inspect parts under the control of the HMI software. Standard routines allow for automated modification of laser cutting position for compatibility with pre-punched, printed or fiducially marked workpiece.
Option includes 90 fps digital camera, controllable illumination system and integrated software
The software that runs the LaserCube is a customized application called HMI2 (Human Machine Interface-2) that runs as a Microsoft Windows® 10 application. It is preloaded and tested at the IPG factory and resides in the workstation’s hard drive.
Used in combination with standard G-code programming, its capabilities provide the user with a comprehensive, easy-to-use programming and operator interface.
