Novel laser welding techniques open up new possibilities for process control and cost reduction within a 24/7 large-scale production environment. LIMO (Dortmund, Germany) now offers a product range of industrial laser systems with integrated process control. These devices are particularly suitable for the joining of medical thermoplastic components and allow a reliable compound of plastics (acording to DVS guideline 2203 part 2-5) with any colouration.
This contactless laser welding process can be performed without any chemical additives and is particularly suitable for components with a high surface quality. The integrated process- and mode control provides a basis for a consistent process management, even concerning components with unsteady material properties or thickness as well as with tight temperature tolerances.
Interested users are invited to come to LIMO’s Applications Center to learn more about the possibilities. With LIMO’s support, users can also work on test components and small batch series or integrate customised laser systems into their production lines.Yvonne Klöpping
