BOLD Laser Automation, Inc. of Bedford, NH USA, announces the shipment of the LPF-UR5P system during the first quarter of 2021.This represents the second unit of this flagship LPF product line to ship within the last six months for cost effective domestic laser-based process applications.
BOLD Laser Automation put into development of a cost-effective, modular UR Cobot loader unloader for laser-based microfabrication applications called the LPF-UR5P Series (Laser Precision Fabricator – UR Cobot 5 – Pallet System), including options for laser drilling, trimming, welding, marking, and laser soldering. With a UR Robot part placement of ±0.030 mm (±0.0012”), the system is an excellent process automation choice. With onboard or remote camera alignment options, an assembly to be processed can be picked up, aligned, and inserted into a processing fixture automatically. With onboard IO and PLC programming, simple clamping or fixturing tools can be added. The LPF-UR platform Utilizing full component assembly automation, or a basic pallet system can provide opportunities for scaling up an application without incurring increased labor costs. With automated vision tools, the LPF-UR platform can perform human-type precision alignment tasks such as orienting parts and loading into fixturing. BOLD Laser Automation offers the LPF-UR platform to clients with existing laser systems, though seamlessly retrofitting to the laser controls, preserving existing capital investment.
