Machine Control Interface for High Precision Laser Processing Applications

  • Leverages on the SPiiPlus EtherCAT® based motion control product line for complete machine control.
  • Easy to use, comprehensive environment for manual and automated machine operation.
  • Creates simple or complex motion/process recipes from one or multiple imported CAD files (DXF, DWG, Gerber, NC Drill, STL, etc.) and/or the SPiiPlusSPC geometric functions.
  • Suitable for many 2D and 3D laser processing applications, ‘out of the box’ solution with customization options available for more complex applications.
 
  • Suitable for any PC running Windows 7/8/10, and XP with SP3, optimized to require minimal Windows resources.
  • Sophisticated laser control options synchronized with single and multi-axis motion via LCMV2 laser control module and drives
    ›› Power modulation mode via digital or analog signal.
    ›› Fixed distance pulse firing mode.
    ›› Array based pulse firing and windowing mode.
    ›› Axis range windowing mode.
    ›› Combining multiple modes simultaneously.
  • Combination of SPiiPlusSPC and SPiiPlus Motion Controller – designed to maximize process throughput and accuracy at every level
    ›› Motion recipe planning (optimal order of recipe execution).
    ›› Motion trajectory generation (maximizing speed while minimizing jerkiness through corners and small geometries).
    ›› Servo performance (ensuring motion axes follow desired path as closely as possible).
  • Easily integrate vision components for automated alignment and calibration.
  • Integration of Galvo scanner control for step and scan (stitching) as well as certain ‘on the fly’ processing applications.

The SPiiPlusSPC is a user interface software for high precision laser processing equipment that provides complete machine control and easily integrates, manages, and coordinates the SPiiPlus motion control system, laser, and other potential machine peripherals (vision, galvo, etc.). 

SPiiPlusSPC full featured standard version can be used an ‘out of the box’ solution for complete machine control functionality, completely eliminating the need for user interface development. 

For more complex applications developed by System Integrators and OEMs, customization options are available through ACS and it’s partners, or via user created plugins.

 

Additional SPiiPlusSPC Features

  • Joystick for intuitive manual axis control
  • Real time display of axis positions
  • Monitor and log physical stage positions during motion to analyze and optimize process
  • Simple skin customization
  • Scanlab RTC galvo controllers supported for step and scan (stitching) type and certain ‘on the fly’ type processing applications
  • Advanced hatching options for marking applications
  • Machine control is handled via the GUI and parameter settings, user can optionally write code directly in the controller as well (ACSPL+ or G-Code) SPiiPlusSPC Applications
