The EX‑TRABEAM® PRO from Thermacut GmbH is a new solid-state laser cutting head with an autofocus function, which is intended to improve penetration into the material. The cutting head is suitable for use with modern, high-performance laser cutting machines equipped with a solid-state beam source operating in the wavelength range of 1030 to 1130 nm and with a maximum power output of 8 kW. The EX‑TRABEAM® PRO works with a collimating focal length of 100 mm and focused focal lengths of 125, 150, 175, or 200 mm. The cutting gas pressure is 25 bar at maximum.
EX‑TRABEAM® PRO cutting heads have a level of mechanical sealing, including “Smart Protection” seal monitoring to protect the optical components. Thanks to the front-operated beam adjustment, the horizontal adjustment is designed to be easy and precise. Compared to other commercially available systems, the capacitive sensing of the EX‑TRABEAM® PRO is not susceptible to temperature drifts. Thus, according to Thermacut, this new laser cutting head allows precise distance measurements even at high beam power.
