ST Series Laser Workstations

Multi-Axis Workhorses

 The Preco ST Series Laser machines come with Preco's user-friendly AcuNav® user interface and are designed for multi-axis laser welding, heat treating, cladding, drilling and cutting of metallic components. The ST1000 line incorporates a moving beam design to operate over a two-position index table for high-production applications. The ST2000 Series are designed for fixed beam processing over an XY motion system.  As standard, these systems are designed for manual part loading, however automated part load/unload options can be integrated.

The ST Workstations are offered in three distinct size configurations, allowing you to select the system that is best suited to your specific needs. These standard workstations can be engineered to meet your specific application.

Custom Equipment is our Standard

ST 2000 Custom Workstation

This photo highlights a range of options integrated into an ST2000 Workstation. This system has an extended travel Z-axis to accommodate a tall part. The enclosure door is also hinged to the left for access and viewing of the system HMI during set-up operations. Note the dual flat panel displays, this additional display is for a vision system. Preco offers a complete range of options for the standard ST Series Workstation in addition to custom-engineered modifications if required.
