Coherent bringing its advanced cutting machine tools to Sign & Digital

Coherent Omnibeam

Coherent will be presenting its Laser Machining Centers at Sign & Digital which it says are 'the most advanced laser cutting machine tools available today'.  The company will be exhibiting on stand G36 in hall 3.

Visitors to the stand are invited to learn more about Coherent's products - the Omnibeam and the Metabeam - and the variety of applications they can be used for.

The Omnibeam adds automated material handling enabling its use with a wider range of materials. Automation options include vision systems, automatic loading and unloading pallet, which enable higher throughput.  Other features include:

  • Versatile, flexible cutting system
  • ‘Ideally’ suited for non-metals
  • Maximum material handling flexibility with Production Automation options.

The Metabeam offers material height sensing and a higher flow rate for assist gases; these make it suitable for cutting thicker metals up to 1/8 inch (3mm). Highlights include:


  • Precision metal cutting focused system
  • Backwards capable to Omnibeam
  • Metal cutting “smarts” built in
  • Capacitive Height Sensor

Coherent’s Laser Machining Centers are ideal for laser cutting perfect parts from a wide range of materials including plastics, rubber and metals. Higher power allows users to process thicker materials faster, with clean cut edges directly off the machine. Each system offers a level of flexibility and speed unmatched by other cutting methods. With no setup or tooling costs, and no consumables, it offers users faster turn around and lower costs with laser cutting.
