Function description

The filler wire required for the seam during joining also serves as a mechanical sensor. The filler wire is continuously pressed into the joint by the swivel axis and melted in the laser focal point; it positions and guides the processing head precisely over the seam. The additional wire thus forms a wear-free, self-renewing guide tip – directly at the focus of the laser and with consistently high accuracy.

Areas of application

  • Laser soldering brazing and laser welding
  • Steel and aluminium alloys
  • Y-seam at the flare joint
  • Fillet welds at the lap joint
  • Fillet welds at T-joint

Advantages

  • Stable process control and highest seam quality through automatic compensation of component tolerances by tactile seam tracking with filler wire.
  • Industry 4.0 as the new standard for connectivity and intuitive user interfaces with recipes for operating and configuring the optics.
  • Lateral tolerance compensation in the process by motor-current controlled swivel axis based on the proven principle of the ALO1 for simple brazing and welding applications.
  • Easy handling thanks to the optional integration of external functions such as wire feeder, media control, QA systems and direct control of the laser source.
  • Shortened start-up times, faster optics changeovers and more efficient service thanks to plug & play in the hardware and interface architecture.
  • Individual device configuration thanks to the modular scacpacs® building block system and expandability over the entire product life cycle.

Supported Laser

  • Diode laser
  • Solid-state laser like rod laser, disk laser, fibre laser
