Laser Capabilities

4 high-powered laser systems are available for diverse welding and cladding applications: a 6-axis CO2 laser gantry robot, a 7-axis fiber laser system, a 10-axis MetcoClad system and a portable Nd:YAG laser. Typical uses include repairing turbine blades and applying wear-resistant coatings.

CO2 laser system

The CO2 laser operates with gas as the active laser medium, and it is still most frequently used in industrial applications. Due to its excellent beam quality, it is well suited for keyhole welding as well as laser cladding applications. 

Technical data

  • CO2 laser with 200 W­–2.2 kW power output
  • 10600 nm (infrared) wavelength
  • Gantry robot with 6 CNC axes:
    • 3 axes are translative X–Y–Z: 2.7 x 1.8 x 0.9 m
    • 3 axes are rotatory A–B–C: 360°, ±90°, 360°
    • A-axis is stepless and tiltable by 90° between horizontal and vertical operation
  • Diameter for part’s turntable can be up to 1.8 m
  • 5-axis simultaneous welding
  • Offline programming capability
  • Integrated contour recognition system

Fiber laser system

Flexibility is the main advantage of our fiber laser. The adjustable power output from 50 W to 1.5 kW makes it a perfect tool for laser cladding of iron-, nickel-, and cobalt-based materials as well as aluminum- and titanium-alloys.

The associated handling system was designed by us to ensure maximum flexibility for part geometry and part size. 

Technical data

  • Ytterbium fiber laser
  • Fiber laser with 50 W–1.7 kW power output
  • 1070 nm (near infrared) wavelength
  • 5 CNC axes:
    • 3 axes are translative X–Y–Z: 0.7 x 0.7 x 0.5 m
    • 2 axes are rotary B–C: ±180°, 360° in the turntable
    • 2 rotary axes are manually adjustable D–E: 360°, ±90° in the processing head
  • 5-axis simultaneous welding 
  • Offline programming capability

Oerlikon MetcoClad System

The MetcoClad System increases our existing capacities in Laser Cladding services. With its 6 kW diode laser and its well-integrated robot handling system it represents the actual state-of-the-art in Laser Cladding. Even large work pieces can be processed CNC-controlled.

Technical data

  • Diode laser with 60 W – 6.0 kW power output
  • 900-1070 nm (near infrared) wavelength 
  • Robot system with 10 Axes
    • Track-mounted robot (7 axes)
    • Tilting-turntable for part weigh up to 500 kg ( 2 axes)
    • Lathe for parts up to 4 m length and 3 tons weight (1 axis)
  • Offline programming capability

Nd:YAG laser system

Our small, hand-operated Nd:YAG laser is best suited for welding small sheet metal structures and pipe joints, and for applications requiring on-site operation. 

Technical data

  • Pulsed Nd:YAG laser with 150 W average power output
  • 10 kW maximum pulse power, 20 Hz maximum pulse frequency
  • 1064 nm (near infrared) wavelength
  • Three axes X–Y–Z with programmable feed rate
  • 1200 mm reach of laser arm
  • Freely turnable and tiltable processing head
