Fast and Precise 3-D Laser Metalcutting Machine

Jenoptik offers the JENOPTIK-VOTAN BIM laser robot system for 3-D metal cutting of chassis components for the automotive industry, as well as a variety of other metalworking applications. The non-contact laser process is designed to minimize machining times by eliminating set-up time and reducing costs associated with tool wear.

"With a repeat accuracy of up to 50 µm in optimal conditions, this laser machine is precise and is comparable to conventional Cartesian systems," said a company spokesperson. "It cuts a circle or other standard contour in just one second, meaning its cycle time is significantly shorter than other robot systems."

The concept behind the JENOPTIK-VOTAN BIM series is based on a beam guide inside the robot. This means that laser sources with a power of up to 4 kW can be used without the need for a complex external beam guide. The equidistant internal beam path provides a stable beam quality. Several laser robots cutting in parallel can also be integrated into a single machine in order to achieve a higher output within reduced floor space.

The robot-based machines enable complete line integration of the laser cutting process and can be easily integrated into production lines or combined processing units.

The JENOPTIK-VOTAN BIM is used in the automotive industry for cutting complex car body components made of materials such as hot-formed and ultra-high strength steels as well as cast aluminum. Hydroformed tubes can also be trimmed for use in battery or electric motor carrier units for electric cars.
