Diode lasers in the automotive industry
A central application field in car body construction is joining.
The highest requirements for the optical appeal of the seam are on the outer skin. Typical applications are the laser welding of aluminum or laser brazing of galvanized sheets in tailgates as well as the roof / sidewall connection. In these applications, Laserline is also leading in the process development, and offers tailored multi-spot modules for optimizing the respective process.
As to tailored-blanks welding, sheets with different material thicknesses are joined, and thus tailored blanks for the metal-forming pressing of car body components are created.
