Laser programming for special applications
SMRE is a long-standing service provider for customer-individual laser applications. We configure and program for our customers the most advanced laser technologies in accordance with precise material and production specific requirements. Process compatibility, construction site plan oriented programming, as well as routine maintenance of laser welding and laser soldering cells are a condition for a satisfying laser result. Regardless of whether the laser plant is partially or fully automated – we program plants in the field of measurement and electrical communication engineering, material labelling, laser welding, laser cutting or surface technology. Selection of the laser technology supplier is our customers responsibility.
The use of individually programmed automation techniques results in a significant productivity and efficiency increase in the automobile industry.
During the laser welding process, the laser beam moves in three dimensions in relation to the optical focussed component / work piece. Angle and movement create a precise and high quality welding seam.
An increase of capacity utilisation and process speed can be achieved by component-appropriate plant programming. Comparatively less wear and tear provides for more reliability in the production process.
Laser soldering is, in particular, suited for the joining of filigree electronic components and smallest solder joints. In contrast to other methods, processing of the material is touchless.
In laser soldering with a melting temperature (> 450 °C) and laser soft soldering (< 450 °C), the solder is heated to the point of fusion. This creates a connection.
Depending on the component material, the employed temperature can be individually adjusted. Material warpage is minimal.
Laser cutting is used to cut through deep sheets or saw kerfs. Within this process, the laser beam directed onto the component and cuts the material in a straight line.
For programming purposes, factors such as materiality, component depth or laser beam strength must be considered.
Precisely in the automobile industry, flawless quality, clean working and accurate results are expected. This procedure meets these expectations. Even cutting edges and an improvement of process speed are only some of the benefits.
