We use reliable laser welding methods to produce tailored engineered blanks. As a rule, the laser beam is guided by a gantry over the abutting edges of the workpieces, which are held in position during welding by magnetic clamping systems.
The laser beam is focused at the point of welding to a diameter of just a few tenths of a millimeter. This allows the energy to be concentrated on the weld edges, which are heated so intensively that the material melts and joins together. Filler materials are no longer needed. .
Solid state lasers are used to produce non-linear engineered blanks. Due to its short wavelength, the laser beam of a solid state laser can be guided with great precision and at low cost to the welding optic and thus to the welding point.
