With the increasingly challenging requirements in the production of stamped-bent parts and assemblies, the use of laser welding in mass production is becoming more and more important. EBERLE is already using this joining technology in the manufacture of a wide variety of stamped-bent products.
With our expertise, we can integrate the laser welding processes directly into the stamping and bending process, guaranteeing the highest performance of production machines and extremely cost-effective production. Special requirements can be met using the special-purpose machines we have developed in-house. For the production of small batches and for the construction of prototypes, we use our specially developed laser welding cell, with which we can validate our subsequent high-volume production of stamped-bent parts. The characteristics achieved for the welds are evaluated directly in the laboratory and come close to meeting the conditions required for subsequent high-volume production.
The current development of standards, and the requirements of the automotive industry in particular, often require the complete and unambiguous traceability of parts – a requirement we have no trouble meeting!
With data matrix codes (DMC), for example, marking lasers can be used to integrate an almost unlimited amount of data. Laser markings can also easily withstand difficult conditions, so that the chemical and thermal stresses that frequently occur over the service life of a product have no adverse effect on the label.
