Laser-welded gear differential

Deep welding

The 3D laser machine, TruLaser Cell 3000, is well-suited for deep welding where a very high power density, of approximately 1 megawatt per square centimeter is required. Deep welding offers high efficiency and high welding speeds. The high speed means that the heat-affected zone is small and distortion is minimal. This process is used for applications requiring high welding depths or in cases where multiple material layers are to be welded at the same time. A typical example in which this process is used is the laser welding of an automotive gear differential.

Laser-welded control gear

Laser-welded control gear

If a component is worn as a result of high temperatures, pressure, abrasion, or moisture, it is not always necessary to replace the entire component. Laser metal deposition is a fast and cost-effective alternative to manufacturing a new part.

Laser-processed electromagnetic water pump coupling

Laser cutting and welding

The TruLaser Cell 3000 is used both to cut slots and to perform welding on the electromagnetic water pump coupling. The fast process adapter change means that the TruLaser Cell 3000 is extremely flexible in terms of processes.

Laser-cut stator plates

Laser-cut stator plates

Laser cutting makes almost any contour shape possible – even intricate and complex ones – without the need for tool changes. The edges are smooth and burr-free, so there is no need for post-processing. Due to the small size of the heat-affected zone, there is virtually no distortion. Laser cutting is used particularly on metals: steels, aluminum, and alloys.

Components of an operating table

Operating table

Components such as the head plate of an operating table used to be milled in a lengthy and complex process. With the aid of the TruLaser Cell 3000, the component can now be welded together from two laser-cut components, offering up cost savings in the process.

Laser-cut kitchen knives

Laser-cut kitchen knives

Kitchen knives used to be stamped. This led to high tool wear and high tool costs. In addition, whenever the contour was changed the tool had to be changed. The result of this was extensive non-productive time and downtime. Today, lasers are a universal, wear-free tool that bring significant reductions in terms of cost and time. If the contour is changed, e.g. to a different knife geometry, then all that needs to be done is to change the program. In addition, there is no tool wear.

Laser-cut heat protection sheet for exhaust gas systems

Heat protection sheet

Using the 3D laser processing of the TruLaser Cell 3000, heat protection sheets for exhaust gas systems can be laser cut, for example. As a result of the precise light from the tool, neat edges are produced and there is no heat distortion.
