Do you know any cutting tool that can cut through almost any material? WE GOT IT!

Laser Cutting

Trimming of highly deformable cloth, cutting of rigid metal sheets, or even processing of organic material is all possible with one and the same tool. Laser-based cutting system are all-pervasive and are applied in industries, such as textile, automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding but also in the medical area.

Laser Cutting is a thermal laser-based cutting process usually used for two- dimensional pieces e.g. metal sheets, wood panels, organic materials and three-dimensional bodies, such as tubes. The process of laser cutting utilizes optics of a high-capacity laser source pointed at a workpiece, which then melts, burns, vaporizes, or blows away with a jet of gas creating a cut kerf on the job. In contrast to conventional cutting methods laser cutting offers several advantages such as a fastcutting speed, a non-contact cutting process and the absence of additional tool wear, which results in reduced operation time, high accuracy and an increase in productivity.

Especially in the manufacturing of highly deformable materials like fabrics,  submillimeter accuracy in the localization of matching points, adapting the trajectory to smooth deformations, detecting abrupt wrinkles that would produce defective cuts are highly essential. Concerning the handling of the machinery, the system should be operable in a self-explanatory and intuitive manner, and without any sophisticated staff training on system programming or operation. Examples of challenging cutting tasks can be found in the following Laser-based Equipment Assessments (LEA):

CUDE - Direct diode laser system for cutting of mild and stainless steel

MOBILLAS - Mobile laser system for on site material processing

TWOMICRO - Two micron laser source for light weight materials and medical sector

ALPS - Vision based laser cutting of patterned fabrics

How can we prepare for an ever faster changing world? Our High-Speed Laser Technology can keep up the pace!

Laser Welding

Have you heard of Chang'an, GAC or Xindayang? Probably not, but that should change soon. These Chinese car manufacturers are about to enter the European car market offering sophisticated diverse models at very competitive prices. Not just the automotive industry but the global business landscape as a whole is changing fast. Since Asian competitors are able to offer ever more technologically advanced competitive products, productivity and flexibility are becoming key competitive factors. The laser-based welding technology developed by LASHARE gives manufacturers a tool at hand to keep up the pace in the struggle strive for market shares.

Laser welding is the process of using the energy of a laser source to join or bond two substrates. Extremely high welding speed, low thermal distortion, and narrow weld shapes are the main benefits of our laser-based welding technology. Being applicable in a wide range of areas, e.g. manufacturing of jewelry or dental products, and joining of pipes in construction, Laser Welding is especially pervasive in the automotive industry. The production of a single car requires up to 5000 welds, of which 20% are already executed by lasers.
Despite progress to date, challenges remain in further increasing the welding depth in heavy industry and the processing speed and precision overall since the competition never stands still. These challenges are currently tackled in these assessments:

LASPRO  - High speed infrared laser welding monitor and control

MOBILLAS - Mobile laser system for on site material processing

TWOMICRO - Two micron laser source for light weight materials and medical sector
