The ULTRA X6000 platform offers laser material processing for the widest possible range of materials. It is designed and ideally suited for precision material processing in manufacturing, research and development, academic research, and prototyping environments. With its unique modular architecture, customizable solutions can be easily reconfigured with a wide array of options for enhancing performance, capability, and safety to complete the perfect solution to meet present and future business needs.
The ULTRA X6000 platform has a materials processing envelope of 36 x 24 in (914 x 610), with support for materials with a thickness up to 12 in (305 mm).
Configure the customizable ULTRA X6000 platform with up to three laser sources consisting of two interchangeable CO2 lasers and one fiber laser. When the platform is configured with three lasers, users can take full advantage of MultiWave Hybrid technology™ enabling up to three wavelengths – 9.3 µm, 10.6 µm, and 1.06 µm – to be simultaneously combined into a single coaxial beam. Each spectral component of the beam is independently controlled and can be modulated in real time.
Major features include multiple laser support, rapid high-accuracy laser beam positioning, precision material-independent autofocus, controllable laser power density, an automation interface, camera registration, an integrated touch screen control panel, over temperature detection, and support for fire suppression.

Multi-Camera Vision & Registration
A patent pending feature that provides an augmented reality user interface by superimposing design files on images of the material placed on the material support surface and captured by multiple cameras built into the laser system.
The AR user interface facilitates precise alignment of design files using controls that allow the design file to be positioned, rotated and scaled with real time visual feedback made possible through advanced machine vision algorithms.
This feature also supports traditional camera registration work flow using printed registration marks.
Precision Material Independent Auto
focus A motorized Z-axis and high-resolution touch sensor with repeatability of ± .005 in (125 μm).
A patented feature that produces two focal spots (one for each laser beam) to enable the system to deliver two independently controlled raster lines at a time. SuperSpeed requires a laser system equipped with two CO2 lasers of the same wavelength and power.
Multi-Wave Hybrid™ Technology
A patented technology that enables a combination of laser wavelengths (up to two wavelengths) to be focused to the same focal point within the same focal plane and used either sequentially or simultaneously.
Intelligent Materials Database
A powerful and unique database that generates laser processing parameters for a wide variety of materials and laser system configurations. If the system configuration changes, the database automatically recalculates the parameter values.
21” Touch Screen Control Panel
A fully integrated 21” (533 mm) touch panel command and control console used to control laser system operation.
An addressable device that can receive input signals and provide output signals. Enables the laser system to control external devices and allows external devices to initiate laser system functions.
Laser System Manager (LSM)
An advanced user interface with a high degree of functionality and control that allows users to efficiently manage design files and laser material processing parameters.
Industry Standard Interchange Format Support
A software feature that supports industry standard graphic interchange formats including DXF, PDF, and G-Code.
Design File Relocation and Duplication Controls
A set of user controls to reposition or duplicate design files anywhere within the material processing field.
A user adjustable control that compensates for material width removed during laser cutting in order to achieve desired dimensions without changing the design file. It maintains true arc and circle geometry if present in the design.
Vector Acceleration Control
A user adjustable control to define acceleration of vector motion for each control file.
True Width Raster Processing
A feature that eliminates the need for motion system over-travel beyond the edges of the raster image.
Design File Geometry Preservation
A feature that maintains curves in a design file, i.e., circles, ellipses, b-splines, Beziers, and NURBS, and ensures curves are kept throughout the path planning process rather than using linear interpolation.
Programmable Gas Assist
A feature that allows the user to program gas type and flow rate on a process-by-process basis within a control file.
A barrier of clean air that protects optical components during processing.
Coaxial Gas Assist Attachment
A gas assist attachment that directs air (or gas) perpendicular to the material’s surface.
Lateral Gas Assist Attachment
An adjustable gas assist attachment that directs air (or gas) laterally or at an angle to the material’s surface.
A compressed air source that delivers optimally conditioned, clean, dry, and oil-free air for optics protection and gas-assisted laser processing.
An external accessory that dramatically increases the pressure differential between the surface of the Multi-function Material Support Structure and ambient/atmospheric pressure to keep materials stationary.
Class 4 Conversion Module for Pass-Through
A patented technology that enables the laser system to facilitate material pass-through in compliance with CDRH and international safety regulations for operating Class 4 laser systems. This optional, add-on module converts a fully enclosed Class 1 system into an open Class 4 system.
Rotary Axis Module
An accessory that enables 360° rotation laser processing of cylinders, spherically-shaped, and tapered objects. The addressable resolution is 13 arc seconds.
Laser Blocking Laminated Safety Glass
A shatterproof multi-layer laminated safety glass with appropriate wavelength filter media. Meets laser safety requirements OD 5+ for 10.6 µm , 9.3 µm and 1.06 µm wavelength laser radiation.
A highly visible standards-compliant push button. Once depressed, DC power to all laser sources, the motion system, and other control mechanisms are immediately shut off, while aborting all system operations.
A patented accessory that deploys fire suppressant into the laser material processing area if self-sustained combustion is detected.
