For years, the market has valued basiCube scan heads as compact, economical systems with high write speeds. The favorable price/performance ratio often leads to their selection as ‘entry-level heads’ for laser marking or 3D plastics printing. With a classic XY2-100 interface, control was limited to RTC4 boards.

To extend operational flexibility, basiCube is available effective immediately as a variant with a SL2-100 interface. Thus, the RTC5 can provide its multi-million-entry list buffer to overcome the RTC4 control board’s limitation of 8,000 list entries. RTC5 boards also let the laserDESK professional laser processing software conveniently utilize these scan heads. Here, laserDESK serves both as a control center for the scan head and as a graphical user interface for easy creation, management and automated execution of complex laser processing jobs.
