Lasers for the Machine Tool Industry

Economical Production by Using Lasers

Lasers that are used as cutting and welding tools have become indispensable for general machine construction. There is hardly a sector today where lasers are not successfully proving their value, offering a variety of benefits in industrial production. Thanks to clean cut edges, reliable weld seams and flexible guidance systems, high-power lasers have conquered a considerable market share, especially in sheet metal processing.

The processing spectrum is manifold: various components are marked flexibly, durably and with changing contents, flat sheets with thicknesses of 25 mm are cut by lasers or gearwheels, injection nozzles, fire extinguisher housings and heat exchangers are welded. Furthermore, lasers are used for the production of tubes and profiles that are cut by lasers or welded thanks to intelligent system solutions.
