Greater manufacturing flexibility, lower capital investmentRobotic laser cutting generates high quality end products,comparable to using traditional five-axis cutting machines.Laser cutting using robots offer greater manufacturing flexibility– at 35 percent* lower capital investment.Modern ABB robots are used for high precision laser Learning by doingcutting. This is possible through a combination of ABB When the robot is cutting it learns by doing.
