The potential of new aluminum alloys for lightweight automotive design is great. However, nowadays 6000 series aluminum alloys can only be welded at high effort without filler material. Learn from our experts how to push today's process boundaries and weld your components
The number of current-carrying components and thus the number of copper components and copper joints is increasing not only, but especially, due to the increasing electrification. Welding these components cleanly without spatter and smoke is one of the great challenges. Discuss with our application experts how to avoid spatter during welding and make your components cleaner.
Whether a hybrid, fuel cell or battery electric vehicle - all of them require an electric motor for the drive. The challenges lie in implementing high power within the smallest possible space and achieving high productivity and quality in production. With its sensor system and the process control options, the laser technology offers new approaches for the production of drives. Our experts are available to answer your questions on the production of the drive of the future.
In addition to the electric drive, the battery is, from the cell to the pack, one of the core components of an electrified vehicle - from the power of the vehicle up to its range. The production technology is also of great significance here with regard to the quality and costs of the components. Ask our experts about new technologies and solutions for the production of the battery.
Conventional powertrain components are still required, even if the vehicle is electrified. Not to mention the millions of vehicles with combustion engines. Laser technology enables new materials to be welded in this field in order to achieve higher torques in the powertrain or reduce the weight. Discuss these new options in the entire powertrain together with our experts.
Many applications require the cleaning and/or structuring of components - whether for the enlargement of the surface or cleaning tasks. In these cases the laser is an economical and ecological alternative to mechanical and chemical processes in order to process surfaces selectively and quickly. Discuss with our experts the manifold options of laser technology.
From the functional layer to structures, from NVH to the load-compliant optimization of components: powder deposition welding offers a wealth of new technological solutions. Discuss with our experts the new approaches and options of powder deposition welding.
3D printing is on everyone's lips. And the bionic design of components and functional integration are current buzzwords. But often the corresponding industrial maturity and productivity do not yet exist. Discuss with our experts how new machine generations can shift today's application limits and enable new designs.
The BrightLine Weld technology has recently often proven its ability to increase welding speeds and/or reduce spatter in the field of welding. However, the field of penetration welding has remained undeveloped to this day. Find out from our experts which potential can be tapped and which new areas of application can be opened up due to penetration welding.
