Flexible laser solutions with FLC CutFusion
The FLC CutFusion by Weil Technology opens up new potential for 3D processing with highest precision in simultaneous laser cutting and welding in one machine. Up to three processing optics can be mounted on one joint drive axis. Each axis can be actuated separately.
Weil Technology develops machines and systems with innovative laser, clamping and automation technologies for sheet metal processing. Cut Fusion is the solution for combined laser cutting and welding in one setting for the production of tubes, profiles and 3D assemblies. In connection with modular automation solutions, all process steps take place in the same clamping. After the component has been clamped in the device, its position is known at any time during the process. This provides production security and an optimized manufacturing process.
The Flexible Laser Cell (FLC) is the structural basis for the CutFusion method. A cutting and a welding optic are both located on a joint drive axis. Each is driven by a separate linear motor. Thus the laser can produce the break-outs with the cutting optic first, then the cutting optic moves out of the working range and makes room for the welding optic, which joins the positioned components.
The FLC CutFusion impresses with flexibility due to the two station operation with cycle time-parallel un-/loading. The quick-change-system enables minimal set-up times.
