Using both laser and electron beam technologies in a single facility can streamline the fusing of complex geometries that are required on parts such as sensors, medical devices, and products that require a sealed vacuum within the finished part.

Laser Welding Puts Automotive Industry “On A Diet”

The level of innovation behind weight-reduction efforts is exemplified in passenger car transmissions that are manufactured by the millions in volume and, as such, require optimized designs that provide an economic advantage to the manufacturer. With an already great design, is it possible to make them even lighter? This automated system from EMAG shows how.

Powerful Lasers are Ideal for Plastic or Thin Gauge Metal Welding

The TruDiode 301 supplies 300 watts of laser power to the work piece. Wavelength range is between 920 Nm to 970 Nm with CW or modulated CW up to 3kHz.
TruDiode 151 and TruDiode 301 lasers from TRUMPF are more powerful and efficient, yet smaller than previous TruDiode lasers, producing wavelengths that range between 920 Nm to 970 Nm.
