Connecting gearwheel and synchro body using laser welding is the basis for more compact and powerful manual transmissions. Modern laser beam sources combined with optimized clamping technology enable low-warpage welding and as such are a requirement for quiet and easy-to-shift transmissions.
The EMAG LaserCell laser welding machine press-fits the synchro body onto the gearwheel and welds the two components together by means of a laser beam. The EMAG LaserCell is supplemented with expansion stages that allow it to be adapted to your specific tasks.
Laser Welding Machine for High-Output Production
The ELC 160 is a modular laser welding machine that can be configured for the most diverse tasks.
The centerpiece of the ELC 160 laser welding machine is a three-axis NC machining module. Stationary process modules are mounted onto the base frame. The individual parts (e.g. gear wheel and synchronous gear) are loaded into the spindle and then transported from station to station.
The mounted process modules are stationary and handle the machining of the component. Depending on the required output, the ELC 160 laser welding machine is also available in DUO and TRIO versions. The stations can be operated independently of each another, i.e. different parts can be produced simultaneously.
The ELC 160 laser welding machine can be equipped with all types of laser technologies such as CO2 laser or fiber-guided systems (fibers, discs).
