Latest 3D algorithms to support your production process

The APP SUITE from Coherent is an unprecedented new CAD/CAM environment for planning nearly all facets of laser processing: marking, engraving, cutting, welding, cladding, 3D printing and powder-based additive manufacturing processes.

For processing strategies in 2D and in 3D

APP SUITE is excellently suited for supporting and planning processing strategies. The software supports the most popular 3D CAD file formats including STEP and IGES.

The system also doubles as a tool for classic welding and marking tasks as well as 3D printing andn powder-based laser cladding (also for depositing multiple layers).

Suitable for all laser systems

This is the first and only comprehensive software for industrial laser applications that is actually able to read and process all proprietary file formats and control all existing laser systems.

For maximum versatility, all of the usual fonts and both bitmap and jpeg files are supported. It is also possible to generate barcodes and QR codes.

One Software Suite – an Infinite Number of Solutions

The APP SUITE combines the functionality of many other software solutions, making it the first one to approach Industry 4.0 standards. Simulation einer Schweißstrategie

The system is able to combine a photograph of an actual workpiece with a virtual model of it—and do so in real time!

A significant reduction in setup times is achieved by straightforward calibration and teach-in functionality.

Virtually any process is facilitated by the latest 3D algorithms as well as creation of and full support for device drivers for commercially available laser processing systems.

The APP SUITE can then be used to automatically or semiautomatically generate G-code defining 2D and 3D processing paths in three or four axes.

Award for “100% Innovation”

This year the ORLAS SUITE was chosen to receive the “Innovation Award IT” from Germany’s “Initiative Mittelstand” in the industry software category.

The jury was lavish in its praise: “We are especially impressed by this excellent product. It ranks among the very best entries received.”
