The Zwobbel® allows laser beam wobbling in the z-direction during laser processing
What Robust AO does?
Robust AO GmbH (Robust Adaptive Optics) develops and sells fast Z-axes under the brand Zwobbel® for high speed laser material processing. The Zwobbel®, as a Plug’n’Play solution, can solve a crucial problem: the very slow z-axis positioning speed in high power laser processes. By using a novel optomechanical technology, the system is faster, more power stable and more compact than comparable products. The use of the Zwobbel® even enables new processing methods in the field of laser hardening, laser welding and laser cutting as well as the development of new processing fields in micro-structuring.
For Robust AO customers, the time saved during the machining process translates into higher production efficiency and therefore, reductions in cost. Spot wobbling has been proven to increase processing speeds by about 60% during laser cutting of thick sheet metal when compared to standard processes using a static spot.
We are also developing other professional fields for our high-power-capable Zwobbel®-technology in the fields of laser and quantum communication.
