Your production line team knows that laser materials processing tasks are becoming increasingly complex and demanding. Meeting quality standards often requires close control over laser operating parameters, aided by process and system monitoring functions. Plus, laser systems frequently need to communicate with other production equipment – everything from part handling robotics, to computers supplying part numbers, to ERP systems that monitor plant operations. Getting all these pieces to work together can be a challenge.
Coherent Laser Framework solves this dilemma and it’s why we’re thrilled to reveal more about it today.
Laser FrameWork is an integrated software platform that runs on all Coherent Exact and EasyMark Series laser machines, as well as many PowerLine products. It incorporates a symphony of features and capabilities, all accessible through a single interface, to enable faster job setup, higher operator productivity, fewer production errors, and reduced personnel training. These include:
Laser FrameWork gives your process development team all the tools and capabilities they need to set up even the most-sophisticated, high-precision materials processing tasks. This can include defining custom laser pulse shape parameters, creating and performing complex 3D marking tasks, reading datamatrix codes from parts and then using that information to control machine operation, and more.
But, your machine operators see a simplified interface that’s easy for them to use and understand. It provides all the necessary prompts and alerts to keep production running smoothly. Or to let you know when there’s a variation or problem.
And, Laser FrameWork is the same on every Coherent machine, whether it’s a cutting, marking, or welding system. This minimizes operator training and gives you greater flexibility in how you deploy your workforce.
Laser FrameWork gives you one simple-to-use software platform for setup, operation, automation, and connectivity of laser systems, sub-systems, and applications.
