User-friendly and versatile software solution
Novanta’s ARGES product line portfolio of laser control software products enable you to optimize laser control and scanning performance, while providing easy integration with an OEM’s system. Our InScript software works in conjunction with both of our ASC controller series, ARGnet series and HSSI series.
This laser control solution features proprietary algorithms and predictive controls that increase scanning performance for the most demanding applications. Our InScript software features powerful package of designer tools that conveniently support standard file formats. Our ASC controller series and software solution is compatible with all ARGES scan heads.
The Controller Services provide user-friendly functions and methods for managing and monitoring the entire controller as well as all devices connected via ARGNET.
Timed Signal Streams (TSS) are streams of various data which can be requested from a ARGNET controller. The TSS Recorder in InScript provides a very simple way to capture these streams and save them to files (binary or CSV) for further analysis on an external PC or device. The TSS Recorder comes with a scalable sample rate and CSV export. The resolution of the streams can be configured stepwise per stream up to 200K sample rate. The recordings of all data streams can be used for external data analysis, quality purposes, troubleshooting, diagnostics, and external visualization of process signals with time resolution of 5 microseconds.
In this latest June, 2022 release, major usability patches for core components of the system such as the Vector Editor, the SFC Wizard, the Timed Signal Stream Views and various other components are included. In addition, the version includes major stabilization and performance enhancements that enable a more efficient and user-friendly work experience.
Our AO-OTF is needed for battery foil cutting for the e-mobility market. This method switches fully automatically between segmented and continuous mode, achieving very high cutting speeds with high precision. By keeping the laser on throughout the process, lasers with lower power can be used for the cutting process, reducing the overall cost of the battery production line.
For the best results in applications such as cutting electrode foils and welding battery cells, both statically and during movement, our InScript software offers all facets for flexible material processing with respect to:
Precision and ultra-fine levels of accuracy are critical advantages of laser scanning control in micromachining applications. Users that add InScript to their laser scanning solution can achieve:
Using an OCT as a tool for pre-, in- and post-processing needs a powerful software solution for data post-processing and visualization, which is provided by the InScript software with features like:
This latest release of our ASC and InScript laser controller solution provides our Always-On On-The-Fly (AO-OTF) feature, which enables a very fast MOTF process for battery foil cutting for the e-mobility market. We also introduce our laser power ramping and new wobble shapes to improve welding applications. This release also includes: a major feature and usability update for our OCT solution, extended our EtherCAT automation interface to provide users with more flexibility and a greater amount of process data for better process handling and enhanced, user-friendly Controller Services for managing and monitoring the entire laser scan system. Lastly, you can find major usability & stabilization patches for the ARGNET Series.
