The "Modula" machine components provide all necessary modules for a welding process. They can be integrated into a specific special machine for plastic welding with laser by the internal machine building group or an external machine manufacturer. The modules are optimally matched to each other and the parts to be welded, so that only the part feed and the machine safety have to be ensured.
The possible Modula components for an integration are
Laser unit with different powers
The laser unit also includes the control unit and a touch screen with user interface to set up the process.
Connections for customer interface, safety interlock, and emergency stop allow easy integration into a complete system. In addition, as with the Turnkey S, additional keyboard, mouse and monitor can be connected via USB and HDMI. A network connection can be established via an Ethernet connector, for example for data exchange or remote maintenance via the internet.
Optics with different beam shapes
The optics are also modular, so that different process types are possible. From a simple spot optic for contour process to scanner for quasi-simultaneous welding and special optics such as ring optics for simultaneous welding, radial optics for circumferential welding, ball optics for contour process without clamping unit, or line optics for mask welding are possible.
The clamping unit presses the plastic components to be welded together during the welding process. This clamping can be performed pneumatically or electrically and monitored by additional sensors.
Linear axes in x-, y- or z-direction can be used as motion system or a scanner, which moves the laser beam at very high speed in a welding plane for quasi-simultaneous welding process. The contour is controlled directly in the laser unit and requires no additional control unit.
