The ULTRA R9000 platform has a materials processing envelope of 48 x 24 in (1219 x 610 mm), with support for materials with a thickness up to 12 in (305 mm).

Configure the customizable ULTRA R9000 platform with up to two laser sources consisting of two interchangeable CO2 lasers or one CO2 laser and one fiber laser. When the platform is configured with two lasers users can take advantage of MultiWave Hybrid™ technology enabling up to two of three wavelengths from 9.3 µm, 10.6 µm, and 1.06 µm – to be simultaneously combined into a single coaxial beam. Each spectral component of the beam is independently controlled and can be modulated in real time.

Major features and options include multiple laser support, rapid laser beam positioning, precision material-independent autofocus, controllable laser power density, automation interface, multi-camera vision & registration, over temperature detection, and support for fire suppression.

Ultra Series Options

Multi-Camera Vision & Registration *

A patent pending feature that provides an augmented reality user interface by superimposing design files on images of the material placed on the material support surface and captured by multiple cameras built into the laser system.

The AR user interface facilitates precise alignment of design files using controls that allow the design file to be positioned, rotated and scaled with real time visual feedback made possible through advanced machine vision algorithms.

This feature also supports traditional camera registration work flow using printed registration marks.

Precision Material Independent Autofocus

A motorized Z-axis and high-resolution touch sensor with repeatability of ± .005 in (125 μm).

SuperSpeed™ Technology *

A patented feature that produces two focal spots (one for each laser beam) to enable the system to deliver two independently controlled raster lines at a time. SuperSpeed requires a laser system equipped with two CO2 lasers of the same wavelength and power.

Multi-Wave Hybrid™ Technology *

A patented technology that enables a combination of laser wavelengths (up to two wavelengths) to be focused to the same focal point within the same focal plane and used either sequentially or simultaneously.

Rapid Reconfiguration™

A patented technology that enables users to install and reinstall any supported ULS CO2 laser source onto any ULS laser system without tools or optical alignment to optimize laser processing for the widest variety of materials.

Intelligent Materials Database

A powerful and unique database that generates laser processing parameters for a wide variety of materials and laser system configurations. If the system configuration changes, the database automatically recalculates the parameter values.
