SUPPORTS WIDE RANGE OF WELDING, MARKING, DRILLING & CUTTING NEEDS IN A FLEXIBLE AUTOMATION PLATFORM
WILMINGTON, Mass-- Automation Engineering Incorporated (AEi), a global supplier of high precision automation systems, launches VGLase®. AEi's VGLase micro-laser welding station is a flexible automation platform that performs a variety of vision-guided laser welding, marking, cutting and drilling functions without the need for traditional programming. Applications that benefit from VGLase's level of precision and re-configurability are a diverse range of products that span geometries and material combinations.
According to AEi Chief Technology Officer Andre By, "The VGLase laser processing automation systems build on our experience with earlier vision guided laser systems and continue to demonstrate our support for R&D and product process development on the same flexible automation equipment deployed for production. This provides our customers with the ability to develop and validate new laser processes at the R&D and product design stages and then rapidly implement the same processes for new products and packaging production ramp-up - whether the production equipment is across a plant or across the world. The result is a significant reduction in time-to-market costs for product introduction and production ramp up, giving our customers an advantage over their competition especially in emerging and expanding technology markets," concluded By.
