Many challenges, one solution
Are you as a sheet metal processor struggling with the lack of skilled welders and increasing pressure concerning quality? You are not alone in this. The demand for simple automation for time-intensive welding is enormous. This is why we have developed a system that even laser novices can operate immediately. A system that enables you to weld more quickly, save on post-processing and still grow the company despite a lack of skilled professionals.
Get the first class quality, productivity and design freedom of lasers for your company.
Your team will operate and program the welding cell after just one e-learning session. Clever operating units and visual support ensure this.
Depending on demand, you can weld one large component or smaller ones in serial operation working parallel to production.
Set the machine up at its location and start operation independently within just a few hours
Quick and reliable
You can create slim high-strength seams quickly with the deep welding process.
The counter segment made of stainless steel shines with particularly attractive visible seams thanks to heat conduction welding.
For all common materials
The lower terminal box is made of mild steel, the middle one is made of stainless steel and the upper one is made of aluminium. You can weld all materials flexibly with the laser.
Hardly any reworking required
Catering containers made of stainless steel can be produced with laser welding with hardly any post-processing required.

Thanks to the ingeniously simple programming concept, users can program the industrial robot without any knowledge of the robot code. The robot is moved with a special operating unit directly on the optics. The weld seam's waypoints as well as start and end points are set using the quick programming button. The program is created automatically.
On the welding optics, you switch between heat conduction and deep penetration welding. A pilot and line laser makes it easier to set the intermediate layer. The optics' height is set correctly for laser welding if the red dot of the pilot laser is on the red line of the line laser.
The coaxial shielding gas nozzle with integrated crossjet protects the melt in every direction from oxygen input and the processing optics from welding steam and spatter. A linear attachment provides optimum protection of the weld seam from oxidation.
You will receive an extensive collection of predefined welding parameters with the machine. This makes programming even faster. You simply select the suitable data record for your welding path, depending on sheet thickness, procedure and material.
The KUKA robot KR 10 with its six axes moves with agility and extreme precision.
During two-station operation, the robot shuttles along the linear axis between the right- and left-hand stations. During one-station operation, it utilises the movement space for improved positioning of the welding optics.
The monitored safety cabin with integrated suction system, laser protection and lighting ensures safety. The extendible partition wall divides the work area for two-station operation if required. There is optimum access to the system thanks to sliding doors on the left and right as well as two hinged doors at the back.
You can fix the components on the work table with positioning accuracy. Standardised clamping systems or fixtures are suitable for positioning the components. The table plate is fitted diagonally with system holes D16 in a grid of 50 x 50 mm. The table's dimensions are 2000 x 1000 x 100 mm.
An additional axis for rotating components extends the positioning options. The two pneumatic rotary axes allow for synchronised positioning of components or fixtures, improving accessibility and productivity.
