A device for interleaving a plurality of laser beams (2a, 2b . . . ) that includes laser emitters (3a, 3b, . . . ) arranged along a first direction (X) at a predetermined first distance (P1) from each other to generate laser beams that are aligned parallel and run at a first angle () to the first direction (X). Deflecting surfaces (7a, 7b, . . . ) deflect the laser beams so that the deflected laser beams run parallel to one another at a second angle (). The first angle () and the second angle () are matched so that the optical path lengths (L1a+L1b, L2) of the laser beams between a first plane (X, Z) running along the first direction (X) in the beam path upstream of the deflecting surfaces and a second plane (B, Z) running along the second direction (B) in the beam path downstream of the deflecting surfaces are identical.

A tool includes first and second tool parts that move toward one another, at least one processing device provided on the first tool part, and at least two counter devices provided on the second tool part. The processing device and the counter devices are rotatable relative to one another about at least one positioning axis, and the counter devices are aligned relative to one another along a direction of relative rotational movement of the processing device and the counter devices. The processing device and a first counter device are allocated to one another by at least a first defined processing parameter, and the processing device and a second counter device are allocated to one another by at least a second defined processing parameter. The first processing parameter is different than the second processing parameter.

A cutting machine includes a suction duct that is movable with a cutting head of the cutting machine, using a common drive. The suction duct is disposed beneath the workpiece support and coupled to the motion unit supporting the cutting head so that it moves with the motion unit while an opening of the suction duct remains positioned below the cutting head during a cutting operation. The suction duct removes cutting debris and dust, and protects underlying machine components from beam damage.

A workpiece processing machine, such as a laser cutting machine, includes a motion unit having an associated drive, a cutting head mounted on the motion unit and configured to deliver a cutting beam, and a suction duct or other form of beam interceptor coupled to the motion unit so that it moves therewith and an opening of the suction duct is positioned below the cutting head during a workpiece processing operation. The machine also includes a frame configured to support the motion unit and defining a movement area of the motion unit, the frame having a beam located generally centrally in the movement area.

A radio frequency (RF) excited laser assembly includes a pair of opposed electrodes defining an inter-electrode gap and a conductive termination bridge in electrical contact with both electrodes. The termination bridge mechanically supports and positions the electrodes relative to each other and provides a termination impedance for an RF voltage applied to the electrodes. A conical spiral inductor includes one or more metals windings, and one or more concentric terminals, such that the conical spiral inductor defines an inter-winding spacing sufficient to mitigate ionization of a gas medium between windings. A radio frequency (RF) feed-through assembly configured to apply an RF voltage to a pair of opposing electrodes such that a conductor is isolated from a metal sleeve position around the conductor by ion sheath discharge barrier.

Moving enclosures for laser equipment are provided. A machine tool installation is disclosed, including (a) a laser cutting head configured to be movable in three dimensions; (b) a workpiece support configured to support a workpiece in operative relationship with the laser cutting head; (c) a skirt configured to surround the laser cutting head on three sides and intercept light that passes from the head and is reflected off of the workpiece or workpiece support; and (d) a protective cover positioned to intercept light that is reflected off of the workpiece or workpiece support and is not intercepted by the skirt. The skirt and protective cover are configured to move laterally with the laser cutting head.


DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q98s5p/global_and_china) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Laser Processing Equipment Industry Report, 2014-2018" report to their offering. In 2014, global laser market picked up, with laser system sales hitting USD9.2 billion, a year-on-year growth rate of 6%. Over the next couple years, optical storage, military, and scientific research markets are expected to remain weak, but emerging application markets like 3D printing and sapphire cutting will fuel market growth. The global laser market is expected to grow at an CAGR of about 8% during 2015-2018. As a global processing and manufacturing center, China sees continued expansion in laser processing equipment installation. By the end of 2014, China's laser cutting complete equipment ownership approximated 20,000 units (sets), of which over 3,000 were high-power ones which are used mainly in automobile, shipping, and aerospace fields, and around 10,000 units (sets) were small and medium-power ones, finding applications in sectors such as textile & clothing, advertisement, handicraft and electronics.
