Jenoptik with innovations at the trade fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2013 in Essen.

From September 16 to 21, 2013, the Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing and Optical Systems divisions will be presenting their innovative products in Hall 6 at stand C122 at the trade fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2013 (WELDING & CUTTING 2013).

(PresseBox) (Jena, ) With the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM, the Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing division will show a laser cutting system which allows for maximum throughput and precision in the smallest of spaces for 3D metal processing and has many advantages compared to currently used laser machines. Another presentation will feature the 1kW fiber laser JenLas® fiber cw 1000 for non-contact cutting and welding of metals of different thicknesses and geometries with high flexibility, speed and excellent quality in processing.

In the field of exhaust air purification, Jenoptik will inform about the most advanced filter technology from their house, designed for the cleaning of exhaust air streams such as those generated in laser material processing.

The Jenoptik Optical Systems division will show the F-Theta lenses Silverline for high-power laser applications, which were newly introduced in the beginning of 2013, as well as beam expanders and optical components for laser beam transmission and shaping. The division possesses outstanding expertise in the development and production of customized system solutions, optics and micro-optics for applications in laser material processing.

Product information JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM.

With JENOPTIK VOTAN® BIM (Beam in Motion), the robot based laser machine for 3D-metal cutting, Jenoptik provides a highly flexible, fast-working and cost-effective solution for material processing to industrial manufacturers.

The core piece of the laser cutting machine JENOPTIK VOTAN® BIM is a laser robot arm in which the laser beam is directly integrated. The laser coupling proceeds through the robot‘s base so that the transport fiber does not move concurrently with the arm. This minimizes the otherwise required costly maintenance and renewal and also streamlines the system to the necessary minimum. The slim laser cutting head with a weight of only five kilograms allows access to even the narrowest spaces. The high path accuracy and the high dynamics of the system required for 3D-metal processing can only be achieved by such construction design. With a repeat accuracy of ±100 µm the Jenoptik laser machine is one of the most precise in its class.

The axis movements of the Jenoptik laser arm are up to 60 percent faster than current standards and, therefore, allow for significantly shorter cycle times when compared to conventional laser robots for metal processing.

The components of JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM are mounted on a platform of about 12 sqm, which involves the robot, laser, control cabinet and a turntable that supports maneuverable processes and consistent cutting. Moreover, JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM can be easily transported by means of a fork lift and easily set up, which optimizes the installation time for the user.

The laser machine JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM is used especially in the automotive industry, to cut highly complex 3D body and construction parts as well as hydro-formed tubes, for example for exhaust systems, precisely and within seconds. Furthermore, manufacturers can hugely benefit from the machine‘s dynamic abilities which facilitate laser cutting of contours and functional holes into white goods, tanks and containers. Other possible applications are 3D-laser cutting of thin metal parts, as well as the cutting of sophisticated profiles – all at the highest level of cutting quality and process stability.

A live demonstration of the robot system, the core piece of the laser machine JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM, can be seen at the trade fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2013 in Hall 6, booth C122, at the exhibition grounds in Essen from September 16 to 21.
