MULTISHIFT®

All-in-one system for the highest demands

The MULTISHIFT® from ACSYS is versatile, ergonomic, automated, full of high-tech and an eye-catcher. If only because you can watch the laser at work here.

Automated precision included

The MULTISHIFT® combines fully automatic processing with high-precision robot handling. The system can accommodate up to 20 pallets with either loose or placed workpieces. The integrated robotics system feeds these to the laser processing: accurately with the help of high-resolution camera systems and optical parts recognition from ACSYS. Fully automatic, multi-sided workpiece processing is also possible – with maximum precision, as the MULTISHIFT® machine body is also made of high-strength steels and granite. This guarantees excellent results.

Function and design in perfect unity

With the MULTISHIFT®, the human operator is the measure of all things. This is evident from the attractive and ergonomic machine design. The design highlights include the height-adjustable control panel with touch-sensitive surfaces, the large laser safety glass doors, through which observers have a clear view of the laser machining process, and the practical 360° access via doors and portals at all relevant points.

MULTISHIFT®

Engraving, marking, structuring, welding, cutting

The MULTISHIFT® has earned the all-in-one label simply because of the laser processes available. The system is capable of laser marking and engraving as well as laser cutting, laser welding and laser structuring. Unique on the market: The MULTISHIFT® is modularly developed for the use of state-of-the-art laser sources. You can choose from nano, pico, femto and CO2 lasers with individual configurations.

There are also a whole host of additional functions and features that allow you to tailor the MULTISHIFT® precisely to your laser requirements. These include, for example, the camera-supported Live Adjust System (LAS). It reduces set-up time and allows precise positioning even with small workpieces. And the dynamic focus control DFC optically tracks the focal point of the laser so that it follows the workpiece contour exactly.

But the MULTISHIFT® is also packed with intelligent technology as standard. One example of this is the gripper system of the integrated ACSYS robotics. It is suitable for handling solid workpieces as well as soft components or those with sensitive surfaces – such as those made of highly polished stainless steel. The system’s gripper fingers are made of a special plastic material for this purpose. Their gripping force is individually adjusted between 5 and 20 newtons – software-controlled and material-dependent. Workpiece handling is permanently monitored by the intelligent control system. Parts that deviate in geometry or are not correctly recorded are recognized immediately. The robot handling also enables the components to be turned and thus processed from two sides.

Add-on technologies for specific requirements

As an all-in-one system, the MULTISHIFT® is designed for automation, precision and efficiency as standard. That’s what makes it so powerful. We offer you a broad and technologically unique portfolio of options so that you can benefit even if your machining requirements are anything but standard. You will find a solution for almost every requirement and can customize your MULTISHIFT®.

All-in-One Quick-Change System

A high-precision laser system solution for three completely different laser processes: The patented quick-change system from ACSYS enables marking, engraving and cutting with laser technology. The laser is guided by a galvanometer scanner and either gravure optics (F-theta, plane field optics, telecentric optics) or a laser cutting head is attached.

DFC – Dynamic Focus Control

The DFC module from ACSYS ensures that the laser focus is constantly and dynamically tracked on curved components. This saves you the time-consuming task of splitting the layout into different focus layers. What’s more, even complex 3D geometries can be processed precisely with the dynamic focus control. Reductions in processing quality are a thing of the past.

DFS – Double Focusing System

With the Double Focusing System (DFS), you can see at a glance whether the laser processing head is at the correct focus distance from the workpiece. The correct focus distance can be determined in this way, especially for surfaces that are difficult to access or difficult to measure.

A pilot laser marks the center of the laser processing field and also offers the advantage that either fitting rectangles or the contour lines of the layout can be displayed directly. A high-resolution camera transmits images directly from the interior to the monitor on the control panel. The Double Focusing System is also available with green laser systems.

Dividing Heads

ACSYS offers you various dividing heads for precise angular positioning and further turning of workpieces. Each of the devices is NC-controlled and has an electric rotary axis as well as a manually or electrically adjustable swivel axis. Dividing heads are used for the internal and external marking of rings and cylindrical or conical workpieces. They are available with manual feed or automatic feed with automatic loading.

LAS – Live Adjustment System

The camera-supported Live Adjustment System significantly reduces your set-up effort and enables the exact positioning of even the smallest workpieces in the system. The principle: a high-resolution camera transmits images directly from the interior to the monitor on the control panel. With the help of the infinitely variable digital zoom function, you can bring all the details of a workpiece onto the screen and place layouts with absolute precision. The target result is displayed as a preview. If required, new layouts, markings, barcodes or data matrix codes can even be created and implemented directly on the monitor – without additional workpiece measurement.

The LAS is also available as a dual camera system for the highest precision requirements. The first camera shows an image of the workpiece inserted for processing. This is the basic LAS function. The second camera provides a view directly through the beam path of the laser and delivers a high-resolution partial image of the workpiece region to be processed.

OPR – Optical Parts Recognition

Optical part recognition from ACSYS is the key to highly efficient batch processing. The system is ideal if you feed several workpieces of the same type to your ACSYS system in bulk at the same time in order to process them in a single pass. How it works: The OPR camera module captures the parts on the workpiece carrier. The associated software uses the images to recognize the position and alignment of each individual workpiece and controls the laser so that the engravings or markings are always made exactly at the predefined position.

PLD – Pilot Laser Module

The Pilot Laser Module (PLD) generates a visual pointing laser that makes it much easier to position the workpiece correctly under the laser processing head. The clearly visible red light beam of the pilot laser offers several advantages: On the one hand, it marks the center of the laser processing field and also indicates a fitting rectangle according to the layout specification. Optionally, the fitting rectangles of all layout elements and, in the case of small layouts, the contour lines of the layout can also be displayed directly.

And with the help of the AC-LASER software, reference points and cutting edges can be precisely traced, allowing the laser process to be simulated before actual processing. In this way, the accuracy can be checked in advance and, if necessary, adjusted and simulated again without consuming material.

Quick Lens Changer

Demanding applications require the lens or optics to be changed for high-precision laser processing. With the quick lens changer from ACSYS, quick and easy changing when using different processing optics is child’s play. And the AC-LASER software ensures that all parameters are set correctly straight away – no matter how often you have to change the lens. The smart quick lens change system from ACSYS ensures consistently high-quality precision machining of the workpieces and maximizes efficiency in the production process.

RAS – Rapid Area Scan

With the unique Rapid Area Scan process, you can speed up the high-precision digitization of templates for the creation of 3D models by up to 30 times – including the transfer of data to CAD tools. Instead of a single measuring point, a complete measuring line is projected. This means that an original can be scanned in blocks and significant time savings can be realized during the scanning process. The scanned segments are merged by the software without any loss of quality. The line width can also be adjusted flexibly and easily. And with the precise preview of the scan, you have full control.

The Rapid Area Scan System can be integrated into all ACSYS precision laser systems of the µ series – also as a retrofit. And the direct interface to tools such as CarveCo saves even more time. RAS also offers the great advantage of scanning and processing in one system.
