Our next event is LASYS in Stuttgart from June 21st to 23rd, booth 7D31 in hall 7

DMC PRO

DMC PRO is the ultimate tool to create laser machining designs and control laser machines. Be it semiconductor production, mold texturing, or additive manufacturing – DMC PRO has the flexibility to control most laser machining applications. All the processes are designed in a simple and visual way. There is no need for G-Code or any other programming.

Use it on your lab or industrial machine. For multiple machines also consider an OEM version. DMC has several versions and modules to fit different applications and budgets.

Features

#1

CAD import and design

The basis of any laser machining recipe is fabrication trajectories. In DMC trajectories can be generated by importing CAD files (DXF, DWG, STL, Gerber, NC Drill, etc.) or by drawing them with built-in tools.

  • Set the size and position of the object or simply drag it where it should be machined.
  • Slice and use Hatching to fill the volume of the object.
  • Use Stitching feature to split large objects to machine with galvo scanners.

CAD import and design
#2

Hardware Control

DMC laser machining software controls the hardware of the machine directly. So there is no need for G-Code generation, proofing, and uploading. 

Having direct access to machine hardware provides a lot of benefits by integrating cameras and sensors for smarter processes.

Hardware Control
#3

Stage and Scanner Synchronized Control

DMC’s Adaptive Mark on Fly (A-MOTF) allows efficient processing of large parts that can tolerate stitching or have features that are small enough to fit into the scanner field. Using DMC’s A-MOTF, it is often possible to achieve up to 30% faster processing times compared to other technologies.

DMC also supports:

  • Aerotech’s Infinite Field of View
  • Scanlab’s XLScan
  • Polaris IFOV

Stage and Scanner Synchronized Control
#4

Multiple Scanner Simultaneous Control

DMC enables the simultaneous use of several scanners for processing a single area. The user has to import a CAD object and define process parameters, then DMC automatically handles trajectory separation between several scanners and controls the hardware to produce the part.

Multiple Scanner Simultaneous Control
#5

Machine Vision And Alignment

DMC software seamlessly integrates machine vision for laser machining processes. Use it to see machining results, position your fabrication trajectories on the sample precisely or calibrate your system.

#7

Automation

Complex laser machining recipes can be created and automated with DMC software for a very wide range of applications.

The software can communicate via IO, databases, serial, OPC UA, and other industry standards to other machines and production management systems to allow for Industry 4.0 compatible machines.

#8

5-axis Machine Control

DMC can be used to control 5-axis stages plus a galvo scanner for any 3D shape processing. After the system is configured in DMC, the user only has to import a CAD object, set process parameters and click Run. DMC handles trajectory calculation and process control.

5-axis Machine Control

Modules expand the functionality of DMC

For Machine Vision, 3D printing, PCB processing or even 5-axis machine control

PCB Module

PCB Module is an addition for DMC LITE for PCB processing. It adds Gerber and NC Drill / Excellon file support for PCB laser etching, drilling and cutting control. All the processes can be combined and controlled in DMC with minimal operator intrusion. Automatically included with DMC PRO.

PCB Module

3D Module

3D Module is an addition for DMC LITE for 3D file (STL, STP, IGES) import and preparation for laser 3D printing and/or deep laser engraving. It includes model fixing and support generation tools for 3D printing. Automatically included with DMC PRO.

3D Module

MV PRO

MV PRO integrates machine vision functionality for DMC. It supports industrial cameras (IDS, AVT, Basler, Mightex, PointGrey and similar) and adds focus finding, view stitching functionalities as well as manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic sample alignment. It also unlocks calibration tools that are using a camera for data collection.

MV PRO

MV LITE

MV LITE integrates camera view into DMC. It supports industrial cameras (IDS, AVT, Basler, Mightex, PointGrey and similar) and adds focus finding functionality as well as manual sample alignment.

MV LITE

Multihead Module

Multihead or Multiple Scanner Simultaneous Control module enables simultaneous use of several scanners for processing a single area. It automatically handles trajectory separation and controls the hardware to produce the part. It also comes with special joining strategies for error minimization. An additional option is a smoke or soot avoidance sorting algorithm that does not allow smoke produced by one head to cover the other head's processing area.



Multihead Module

5-Axis Modules

DMC can be used to control 5-axis stages plus a scanner for any 3D shape processing. There are separate 5-Axis Modules depending on the application. After the system is configured in DMC, the user only has to import a CAD object, set process parameters, and click Run. DMC handles trajectory calculation and process control. Reach out to us for more details.

5-Axis Modules

Laser Lathe Module

Laser Lathe module adds commands and capability to conveniently define laser turning process with multiple steps, from rough material removal to smoothing. Import the CAD, set process parameters, and click RUN to machine the part.
