LasX Industries (Booth 2041) is featuring the LaserSharp Spider STP-400 digital finishing system, a fully automated sheetfed laser solution with high speed variable processing and robotics. It is the first automated laser solution with integration to a robotic pick and place system.
This digital finishing system utilizes a scalable technology that enables the laser processing of complex, variable nested shapes while matching digital printing speeds, providing a complete inline solution. It is ideal for printers who are finishing printed sheets with variable part sizes, complex nesting of rotated parts, intricate cut patterns, variable data, and frequent pattern changes.
The Spider STP-400 has new and enhanced control software specifically designed for job queue manufacturing that requires multiple processing speeds. The new controls offer the flexibility of laser cutting product families with both complex and simple piece designs in the same production run, eliminating downtime costs, increasing production time and revenue. The software utilizes parameters for individual jobs to create a queue with a series of smaller jobs in the same production run. The job queue can be manually created based on sheet quantities or automatically with barcode registration. The barcode registration also offers the ability to process variable printed sheets, ideal for personalization and quantities of one.
