At the leading trade fair for plastics and rubber, the K in Dusseldorf, the Jenoptik lasers & material processing their competence Division shows in the fields of plastics processing and purification. Jena, October 9th, 2013 – with its extensive product range the Jenoptik lasers & material processing Division offers solutions for welding, cutting and perforating plastics. In Hall 11, stand C45 at the plastics show K presents Jenoptik visitors including the series JENOPTIK VOTAN W for laser welding, the disk laser JenLas disk IR70E, a fiber-coupled diode laser module, as well as the new system for the purification of waste in the printing industry, KATASORB PRINT. Non-contact laser welding with JENOPTIK VOTAN W thanks to state of the art laser technology provide a constantly new applications in materials processing. When cutting, welding and perforating of plastics, laser technology is a well-established and recognized procedures, among others in the automotive and supplier industry. The increasing of the vehicle interior equipment and the for security, the carmaker make demand always new challenges these can be solved VOTAN W reliably through the use of the JENOPTIK.
At the Dusseldorf fair of plastic K Jenoptik shows its latest development in the field of plastic welding: to extend the application possibilities of laser transmission welding, Jenoptik has developed welding with a laser line at a – and that can be disconnected. This new process was successfully used already several times in the industry. Essential advantages of this new technology are not only the non-contact connection technology without mechanical and thermal influence, but also high productivity and relatively low operating costs. This innovative method is applied when the laser transmission welding of large plastic components, such as the welding of shot channels on instrument panels or the welding of door panels. For the newly developed laser welding are innovative diode lasers from its own House with a width of 10 millimeters (mm) and an optical laser power up to 100 watts per sub Mount for the standard wavelengths 808, 940 and 980 nm.
