Fiber Tiger

Our ARGES 3-axis high-performance scan heads are primarily used for cutting and welding applications. These scan heads have been specially developed for large work areas and offer a very good spot performance over the entire scan range, even over large working distances. They are employed, amongst other things, on robots in automated applications and are available in various models with and without a fiber connection.

Description

Engineered by our ARGES brand, the Fiber Tiger is an extremely compact and robust scan head for robot‑assisted laser processing and other ‘on‑the‑fly’ type applications in the mid to high kW range. This scan head features a highly dynamic Z‑axis for ultrafast and precise 3-axis laser material processing. It has been designed especially for welding and cutting applications and can be employed in a wide variety of industrial sectors, like automotive, aerospace and machine construction. The Fiber Tiger is a 36 mm aperture size scan head suitable for industrial-scale processing of all commonly used materials, such as metals, plastics and ceramics and can be operated with all commercially available single mode or multi-mode fiber lasers.

All ARGES scan heads are compatible with ARGES ASC controllers and InScript® software.
