A new welding head – remoweld®FLEX – for high frequency laser material processing of difficult to weld materials

Press release (Nr. XIII) - Fraunhofer IWS / 21.6.2017

Due to digitalized product development and cross-linked manufacturing cycles development periods have been radically shortened. Rapid product change requires from manufacturers and suppliers a high rate of flexibility, so that customized and cost-optimized solutions can be offered. For the development of new laser welding technologies individualized processes tailored for specific materials and products need to be combined with innovative hardware concepts. For the welding of difficult to weld materials a new high frequency beam oscillation welding head with integrated process monitoring – the remoweld®FLEX – has been developed, which is going to be presented at the industrial trade fair LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich.
