YC and YW
Whether you need a simple or very complex welding optics design – we adapt to your machine design and your requirements. The modular system allows flexible configuration options and easy integration. Our processing optics YW30/YW52 can be adapted to all common laser sources.
From “low-power” to “high-power” laser applications, you will always achieve a high degree of economic efficiency with our welding optics. Low power losses with all laser types and the status monitoring of the welding optics are “state-of-the-art”. Even under difficult conditions your system works with a high degree of reliability – even in demanding processes such as hybrid or continuous laser welding, for example in tube welding. The long service life of the protective glasses ensures low maintenance requirements.
All YW30/YW52 laser welding optics can be combined with a variety of process monitoring systems, thus enabling a high degree of automation of the laser welding process. This allows you to identify and document a wealth of information relevant to quality and productivity in series production.
The CoaxPrinter offers you a wide range of applications in additive manufacturing – from filigree structures to complex large-volume 3D shapes. It is used for 3D printing, prototype construction and wear protection. Non-porous layers can be applied in any direction.
The start-up of the CoaxPrinter is possible on any type of laser in a short time. The optics and the associated process offer a large process window and thus allow tolerance with regard to fluctuations in parameters such as working distance, wire feed, and laser power. The processing of many different wire materials, including cored wires, offers a high degree of flexibility in the application. Process monitoring documents the quality of the applied layers.
The coaxial wire feed allows 100 % material utilization. In addition, the wire material is more cost efficient to purchase than powder. High process speeds of up to 5 m/min also allow high application rates.
The targeted heat input is significantly lower compared to conventional welding and reduces component distortion to a minimum.
SCAN WELDER (Wobble Head)
With a 1D scanning movement of the laser beam, the seam is specifically influenced. During welding of a fillet seam, for example, the laser power in the upper sheet can be significantly higher and the laser power can be adjusted by the ScanWelder. It is also possible with Scan Welding to reduce the power at the reversal points of the 1D scanning movement in order to obtain optimized seams for the welding process.
Compared to tactile welding, the ScanWelder allows for higher welding speed, lower investment, significantly lower operating costs, and flexible processes. A high distance to the welding process means also safety and stability. With the ScanWelder, all the advantages of remote welding and “welding-on-the-fly” are at your disposal – cost-effectiveness and time saving.
When aluminium is used for car doors, battery boxes, or underride protection, high-strength alloys of the 5xxx/6xxx series are state of the art today. The low crack and low porosity welding of these materials requires intelligent and automated welding systems. This is where the ScanWelder convinces by specifically reducing the heat input and thus optimally shaping your weld seam.
