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.
This system features a two-position index table to allow small part load/unload to take place during the laser processing cycle resulting in high productivity.
These mid-range systems offer a compact footprint and are designed for manual loading/unloading of the

Enclosure dimensions exclude the HMI, laser chiller, and other periphery devices. Accuracies are per 12" or 300 mm of travel. Higher accuracy tables and high-speed linear motor drives available as options.
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.
To optimize your specific application, any laser manufacturer, wavelength or power level can be integrated into the ST Series product line.
Linear Motors / Encoders
The ST Series readily accepts linear motors and encoders in the X and Y-axis.
Rotary and rotary/tilt tables are easily integrated into the ST Series Workstation. Worm drive or direct drive rotary stations can be supplied.
Bar Code Reader
For part and program verification and tracking.
For single side or pass through automation.
Extended Travel Z-Axis
Additional Z-axis travel is available for large parts.
Automated Enclosure Access Door
Designed for automation and to minimize operator fatigue.
Preco can design and build tooling specific to your process.
A range of options are available from simple CCTV devices for manual part alignment to integrated vision solutions that automate seam or part alignment.
Tilt-Head with Fiber Delivered Lasers
Manual or programmable tilt-heads are available.
