The LPKF PowerWeld3D 8000 is a high-performance welding system for the series production of large 3D components up to 1000 mm x 750 mm. Especially remarkable is the flexibility in the Z direction: This welding system can handle height differences of up to 400 mm, as well as controlling the welding process with an integrated melt travel monitoring system.
Laser plastic welding with variable weld seam widths
A unique feature of this system is the wobble welding: In this quasi-simultaneous method, additional amplitudes are superimposed onto the laser beam orthogonal to the feed direction. This allows easy adjustment of the width of the weld seam between 1 mm and 5 mm - which have a particularly homogeneous temperature distribution. This leads to a very short cycle time, and a robust process.
The LPKF PowerWeld3D 8000 is controlled by a Soft PLC. This enhances flexibility and simplifies system connection to the client’s own MES. The PowerWeld3D 8000 is supplied with the intuitively operated WeldPro system software, and LPKF ProSeT 3D for fast project set up. Both programs automatically control the wobble function, and determine uniform energy inputs, even when the height of the weld parts changes.
