The ULTRA X6000 platform has a materials processing envelope of 36 x 24 in (914 x 610 mm), with support for materials with a thickness up to 12 in (305 mm).

Configure the customizable ULTRA X6000 platform with up to three laser sources consisting of two interchangeable CO2 lasers and one fiber laser. When the platform is configured with three lasers, users can take full advantage of MultiWave Hybrid™ technology enabling up to three wavelengths – 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 include multiple laser support, rapid high-accuracy laser beam positioning, precision material-independent autofocus, controllable laser power density, an automation interface, camera registration, an integrated touch screen control panel, over temperature detection, and support for fire suppression.

Ultra Series Options

Camera Registration

A feature that aligns a control file to registration marks or features on the surface of a material. Compensates for scale, skew, and perspective.

Precision Material Independent Autofocus

Repeatability of ± .0025 in. (63.5 μm) using motorized focus assembly and high-resolution touch sensor.

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 three 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 and 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.
