3D scanner optics work autonomously. Welding optics control the temperature of the plastic melting process, and fixed optics monitor the state of the process. In Industry 4.0, optics have their own minds, too.
Eight ways to cut and join the lightweight materials aluminum, plastics and CFRP using lasers.
Aluminum, CFRPs and plastics are tomorrow’s most promising candidates for lightweight design. But what plans and visions do their makers have ? Read on to find out.
Plastic compounds and the laser seem to be made for one another. Marking has become standard, cutting applications are moving forward, and even welding has taken off. New beam sources are driving this development.
The co-managing directors of LaserJob tell us how the ultra-short pulsed laser matches up to the hard reality of job-shop operations.
