The remote laser welding process is based on a 3-D scanner optic developed by Trumpf Laser GmbH. This makes it possible to create complex three-dimensional seams even on large structures. The process is therefore ideal for building vehicle bodies and can replace complicated robot movements. The weld joints have a shear tensile strength of around 67 % of the aluminum alloy. When three weld seams are arranged in parallel, this figure increases to 95 %. ...
