Body-in-White

Apply fiber laser technology to "challenging" materials like welding galvanized steel, aluminum, and HSS.


  • Reduce Postprocessing Accomplish zero-gap welding of galvanized steel without spatter or weld pores.
  • Eliminate Filler Avoid "center line cracks" when welding aluminum 6000 alloys - without the use of filler wire.
  • Prevent Cracking Weld high-strength steels at rapid feed rates with no subsequent cold cracking.

Aluminum Welding

Use the ARM laser to fillet weld without filler wire, avoid center line cracks, and minimize spatter. Plus, adjust weld depth while keeping seam width constant.

Zn Coated Steel Welding

ARM lasers enable high-quality, zero-gap, overlap welding of galvanized steel without blowouts, and open up new possibilities in production.

Brazing

Laser brazed joints at doors or rooflines are seamless, high-strength, paintable, and waterproof, with no requirements for post-processing before finishing.

Success Stories

The introduction of laser technology has enabled us to definitely expand our addressable markets, since variant production from standard plastic parts and sheet metal processing would not have been possible without the laser systems.
