Lasers Make Cars Better

The automotive industry faces countless challenges around the world, such as: lighter, safer, smarter, environmentally friendlier. Laser processes deliver exceptional flexibility with high robustness, and meet tough safety standards.

Laser tools offer:

  • increased productivity
  • material and weight savings
  • enhanced sustainability thanks to lower fuel consumption
  • greater safety
  • more design flexibility

Typical laser scan applications in the auto industry:

  • Remote Welding
    of body components and heat exchangers

  • Welding of Plastics
    e.g. contactless welding of containers or headlights

  • Laser Drilling
    for micrometer-exact fabrication of injection nozzles etc.

  • Laser Cutting
    of installable parts, airbags and other technical textiles (e.g. CRP)

  • Laser Hardening
    of highly stress-subjected mechanisms for minimized wear and tear

  • Laser Perforation
    e.g. for defined breaking points in airbag fittings

  • Laser Structuring
    for surface treatment, minimizing friction losses, and tool mould making for interior fitting components

  • Laser Marking
    Day/night labeling of displays or controls, laser marking of nameplates, laser labeling of parts for batch tracking

  • Functionalizing via Laser Processes
    for preparation of bonding surfaces, paint removal, degreasing, creating oxide layers etc.
