Welding with the adjustable laser spinning process from our new Wobble-3+ allows you to
reduce cycle times, prevent undercut at high penetration depths as well as
achieve very good gap bridging and very low thermal distortion.
Robotic/Cobotic laser welding has emerged as a highly productive automation solution over the past few years. It offers a number of advantages over traditional welding processes and can be used in completely different types of applications.
Robotic/Cobotic laser welding delivers precise and clean welds, whereas other methods of welding are more prone to inconsistencies and may leave inaccurate welds, even when paired with robotic automation technology.
Laser welding is also more versatile, working with a wide range of metal thicknesses.
It is normally much faster than traditional welding and has a significantly smaller heat-affected zone, minimizing distortion of the parts during welding.
Robotic laser welding is used in applications that require clean and precise welding. The accuracy and low heat generation of laser welding make it ideal for welding thin or delicate materials without causing distortion or spatter. The manufacture of medical devices, for example, uses laser welding because there’s no material contact, no spatter, and a high degree of weld consistency.
Similarly, robotic laser welding is used in applications that have limited access to the part. Laser welding robots, unlike traditional welding robots, do not actually need to touch the part. Some laser welding robots can weld from over a foot away from the part. This makes accessing hard-to-reach areas much easier.
Robotic laser welding offers a number of benefits over traditional welding in certain applications, depending on the nature of the part. It’s an innovative way to weld metal materials and it’s been gaining popularity in a wide range of industries and applications.
Using laser welding on products with high production volumes, long weld seams and/or many subcomponents results in impressive savings. These savings are primarily due to the high welding speed, the short intervals between the welding and the short changeover times. Furthermore, in cosmetic welds, directly visible to the customer, often manual finishing operations which would be needed after arc welding can be discarded when using laser welding. In industries such as the furniture industry, this can result in very significant cost benefits.
The pursuit of a higher output and the use of lightweight materials, such as aluminum and high-grade steel, requires alternative joining methods. Aluminum is much lighter than steel and more affordable than fiber-reinforced plastic or magnesium. The rise in popularity of electric cars increases demand for lightweight solutions, increasing the range of the vehicle and compensating for the weight of the batteries. Laser welding has favorable properties for the joining of aluminum and high-grade steel, such as: low heat input, high welding speed and short intervals between the welding.
