Medicut PRO Series Features & Options

The Alpine Laser Medicut PRO Series Femtosecond Laser Workstation combines the precision of femtosecond laser processing with our high performing, modular platform for tube cutting. The end result is a system featuring High Precision, High Speed, Configurable standard options on a highly modular base platform. All integrated into an ultra compact footprint of less than 48 inches wide.

Featuring an Ultra-Compact Footprint

Medicut Pro Series Laser Workstations are the smallest tube cutting systems on the market. With a footprint of just under 48in x 31in, they are easily integrated into existing manufacturing spaces. The standard workstation is offered in a convertible configuration. CDRH compliant safety and interlocks moved to the compact cutting enclosure frees up and allows operators the flexibility to operate.

Designed for Configurability

Our engineered bases are designed with over 60 over molded threaded inserts which allow for 100% configuration across our product platform. This allows us to keep bases on hand in inventory and cut lead-times.

Vibration Damping

Engineered Bases are formulated from a blend of silicon dioxide ceramic quartz aggregate and proprietary additives. Our bases feature 14.5X Vibration Dampening Performance improvements over that of natural stone granite.

Engineered for Longevity

Castings are designed to outlast the life of the machine. High compressive strength, improved thermal stability, zero moisture absorption rates, high vibration isolation, dimensional stability.

Standard Feature

Modular Tooling w/ Compact Cutting Enclosure

Our Modular Tooling Platform streamlines the tool change process for laser tube cutting. Change tooling/tube sizes and be up and cutting in as little as 2 minutes. Each tooling slice can be independently removed and swapped with various options. These tooling options can be purchased at the time of the workstation order, purchased at a later date, or swapped between machines on your floor.

5-Axis Fine Adjust

5 full axes of precision control at your fingertips via fine adjustment screws. X,Y,Z and full Tip Tilt ensure your tube is always aligned precisely where you need it.

Precision Regrip

Execute precision automated regrip operations via our M-code controlled positioner. Precisely execute regrips with less than 0.0005" positional error. Typical Regrip times are performed in under 1 second

Quick Change-Over

The worlds first true standardized modular tooling platform tailored for the Medical Device Industry. Change over tube sizes in 2-3 minutes.

Part Holding

Precision bushings, adjustable v-block guides and micro tube handling, we offer options to cover your needs in addition to offering a threaded array for customer specific fixturing

Standard Feature

Custom Alpine Laser Interface

We've designed a custom Ethernet application to harness the full remote power of our fiber laser.

Motion Program Control

FULL program control of Laser Power, Pulse Width, Frequency, Ramp Up, Ramp Down, Timed/Shot Modes, etc.. Change parameters on-the-fly using M-code or word based programming via Custom Alpine Laser Interface.

Laser Modes

Our systems are configured with 3 laser modes. Capable of cutting both complex high density features and high-speed interrupted helical profiling. Laser modes can be changed on demand. Helical Mode is not only designed special for on-the-fly laser processing, but also removes the 'short starts' companies commonly fight with.

Pulse Shaping

Graphical Programming interface allows for the easy creation of any pulse shape. Ability to save up to 50 user-defined pulse shapes. Pulse shapes can be produced with up to 1000 individual segments with a resolution of 1μs per segment.

Standard Feature

Integrated Closed-Loop Wetcut

Closed Loop, Integrated Wet Cut availble with full water level monitoring, Standard O-ring style water jackets as well as pressure controlled waterjacket upgrades improve process repeatability

Active Filtration
Water is filtered through 3 different stages. Water first returns from the system to a primary waterfall style resevoir. Dirty water is then pumped out and through a 2 stage filter system into the primary tank.
Level Monitoring
The system constantly monitors the level from the water tank through 4 different sensors. Motion programs will automatically abort and turn laser off if there is any issues.
Manual Quick Clamp
Standard Option for the Medicut Pro Series Fiber Lasers. Clamp features a magnetic two part latching system.
Programmable Water Jacket
Remove user variability in you process by upgrading to a pneumatically controlled water jacket
