Innovative laser processing heads at German laser conference

HighYAG Lasertechnology to exhibit heads for laser cutting, welding, and brazing at Laser World of Photonics.

Stahnsdorf, Germany - One of the highlights of the HighYAG Lasertechnology exhibit at the Laser World of Photonics (Munich, May 13-16) is a laser cutting head that has the capability to adjust the focus position and focus diameter automatically by the CNC control unit. This allows the laser cutting of different sheet thicknesses without any manual intervention. In combination with the units rapid focus movement on the work piece this guarantees efficient flat sheet cutting and hence highest productivity in manufacturing.

The company, one of the world's leading suppliers in the laser material processing industry, will also present its other products for materials processing with fiber lasers in addition to innovative laser processing heads for cutting, welding, and brazing in the macro and the micro range.

An exhibit highlight will be a live welding application of the remote laser welding head RLSK. Its three-dimensional positioning of the laser focus offers the opportunity for "welding-on-the-fly" during the robot movement where the time between the welds is minimized and the capacity utilization of the welding robot can be improved. The quality control of the welding process is performed by HighYAG's partner, plasma, whose quality control system is also demonstrated in the live welding application. The company plasmo is a global high-tech provider of automated quality inspection systems for the manufacturing industry.
