Programmable focusing optics in the PFO Series
Products: PFO 20, PFO 33, PFO 3D
Applications: Spot and seam welding, drilling
The Programmable Focusing Optics PFO is a scanner optics for welding and drilling.
Using two mirrors, the laser beam can be placed at any predefined position within the process field or space, or it can be guided over any contour. Spot welds and seams can thus be welded without moving the workpiece or the focusing optics.
The PFO is available for both pulsed and cw solid-state lasers. Different focal lengths ranging from 90 to 900* mm² enable different processing field sizes.
Using a special control unit, processing can be done "on the fly" in order to minimize positioning times due to overlap of robot and scanner movement.
