Typical Laser Scan Applications in the Automotive Industry

  • Remote welding of body components and heat exchangers, for further information visit the website of our associated company Blackbird Robotersysteme GmbH.

  • 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 cleaning processes for preparation of bonding surfaces, paint removal, degreasing, creating oxide layers etc.

  • Additive manufacturing for example for customized component manufacturing
