From September 16th to the 21st the Lasers and Material Processing Division of Jenoptik presents at the trade fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN (WELDING & CUTTING) their innovative solution for 3D-metal working: The JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM enables maximum throughput and precision in the smallest of spaces.
At the trade fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN, exhibit booth C122 in Hall 6, Jenoptik will show their robotic laser machine for 3D-metal cutting to the international community of experts and specialists attending the trade fair. The JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM provides industrial manufacturers with a highly flexible, fast-working, and cost effective laser machine solution that offers several advantages over standard laser machines.
The core element of the laser cutting machine JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM is the laser robot arm with the completely integrated laser beam. The laser coupling is located at the base of the robot so that the transport fiber does not move concurrently with the arm. This minimizes otherwise cost-intensive maintenance and replacement and also streamlines the system overall. Through the sleek, lightweight laser cutting head weighing in at only five (5) kilograms makes accessing the narrowest spaces even easier. The high levels of path accuracy and the very high dynamics of the system required for 3D-metal working can only be achieved by such construction design. With a repetitive accuracy of ±100 µm, the Jenoptik laser machine is one of the most precise machines in their class.
The movements of the axis of the laser arm of Jenoptik are between 30 to 60 percent faster than the current standards and enable significantly shorter cycle times when compared to conventional laser robots used in metal working.
The JENOPTIK-VOTAN ® BIM is leveraged mostly in the automotive industry to process complex 3D-body and construction components and three dimensionally formed tubes, i.e. for exhaust systems. Further possible applications are the 3D-laser cutting of thin metal parts, as well as sophisticated cutting of profiles – all at the highest level of cutting quality and process stability.
