The Gemini-6 is a high performance fiber laser machine for cutting metallic tubular shields, such as that seen in high temperature sensors, thermocouples and RF/microwave connections.

It has a rotary and a linear optical assembly to allow a circumference cut as well as a number of longitudinal slits (up to 4). This makes it easy to remove the metal jacket by gently flexing the cable and squashing the slug.

Our solution is an effective alternative to mechanical methods, especially in processing the new generation of small gage wires, the insulation of which can be easily damaged and burred by mechanical blades.

The benefits of using the Gemini-6 system are:

  • Productivity – minimal burring means fewer rejects of high value parts and results are clean and repeatable.
  • Versatility – the machine is capable of loading single cables up to 0.04″ (1 mm) metal wall thickness; with parts cut from 0.06″ (1.5 mm) to 0.4″ (10 mm) outer diameter and up to 4″ (100 mm) slitting length.
  • Ease of use – operator inserts part into the system and selects a pre-programmed recipe from a list on the the color touchscreen, thereby activating stripping to pre-set parameters.
  • Safety – Class 1 enclosure around a Class 4 laser with safety lock door.
  • Low maintenance and running costs – no laser or machine wear parts; runs from a standard single phase 120V / 230V electrical supply requirement.

The Gemini-6 laser system is optimized for cutting any solid metal shielded cables and wires. Examples include:

  • High temperature sensors and thermocouples
  • High powered RF cables and microwave connections
  • RF and microwave medical ablation probes
  • Armoring for under-sea fiber optic cables.

The Gemini-6 laser system cuts metal round parts:

  • Up to a 1 mm (0.04") wall thickness
  • From 1 mm (0.04") to 10 mm (0.4") outside diameter.
  • Slitting length up to 100 mm (4").
