    Simple to automate

    In two-station operation with a rotational changer you can produce and set up at the same time. This is particularly recommended for high quantities. In addition, a single loading and unloading position facilitates component handling. On request, robots can even take care of the loading and unloading of your parts. Side accessibility to the TruLaser Cell 3000 is excellent. This also enables smooth integration of the machine in complete production lines, including linear transfer and workpiece exchange systems.

    Laser-welded differential gear

    Deep welding

    The 3D laser machine TruLaser Cell 3000 is suitable for deep welding, for which very high power density of around 1 megawatt per square centimetre is required. Deep welding offers high efficiency and high welding speeds. Thanks to the high speed, the heat-affected zone is small and any 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 differential gear.

    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. Thanks to the small size of the heat-affected zone, there is also barely any distortion. Laser cutting is used particularly on metals: steels, aluminium 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 individual 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, and whenever the contour was changed the tool needed to be changed. The result of this was extensive non-productive time and idle time. 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. Thanks to the precise light from the tool, neat edges are produced and there is no heat distortion.
