Introducing a Better Way
Applied Light offers a laser based quartz tube cutting and polishing machine. The equipment is easy to use and produces cut and polished parts at a rate of approximately ten seconds per cut. (Tube diameter does change the cut rate.) The basic machine will cut tube diameters from 14mm to 60mm, all without programming changes.
Our goal is to make equipment that is easy to use and intuitive. Your operator sets the tube length fence, selects a diameter, puts stock material into the machine, and starts it. The included full length linear electronic scale with readout makes setup fast and accurate.
Machines presently in the field are processing both Ti filled and unfilled quartz product. The machines allow a single operator to accurately make high quality cut and polished pieces much faster than with traditional methods.
This is a Class IV laser product. (Class IV indicates that unprotected exposure to a laser beam could occur). We have carefully designed the cutting zone to absolutely minimize exposure to the laser beam itself. The machine features a special housing to direct the intense beam through a gas nozzle onto the quartz tubes. This housing occludes the beam from people while cutting and fire polishing your tubes.
