Laser Welding

Laser welding via scan systems offers advantages such as:

  • low distortion – locally limited energy input to workpieces leads to low thermal and mechanical loads
  • contactless – comfortably long working distances (up to approx. 1 m) offer considerable flexibility even when using industrial robots
  • short process times – high weld speeds and real-time monitoring increase productivity

These characteristics, coupled with high quality and extensive workpiece-geometry design freedom, have elevated scanner laser welding to a broadly-utilized joining process in modern industrial production. And it enables welding of diverse recyclable materials (e.g. plastics, metals and glass) in various thicknesses.

Typical laser welding applications for scan systems

Quasi-simultaneous welding of plastics or glass

High weld quality, no distortion, no particles, flexible workpiece geometries

intelliSCAN III 10 / 14

Fine welding

Very fine weld seams, filigree components, high precision, narrow weld radii

intelliSCAN III 20 / 30

Remote welding for auto manufacturing

Significantly higher efficiency, higher throughput, lower costs, flexible weld geometries

Particularly suited for remote welding:

intelliWELD II FT (with F-Theta objective) – optimized for lap welding
intelliWELD  PR (with prefocus) – optimized for vision applications (e.g. fillet welding)
