Coherent launches turnkey solution for precision metal parts welding

Share this on social media:

The new Coherent ExactWeld 230 is a turnkey solution for automated, precision laser welding of metal parts. It includes a 200W (400W optional) fiber laser, part clamping,  up to four-axis (x, y, z, c), user friendly software, an optional vision system, and factory automation capabilities (Industry 4.0/IIoT ready). These features combine to maximize weld quality, and increase production yields, process consistency and operator productivity. ExactWeld 230 is an attractive choice for medical manufacturing such as endoscope production, as well as the fabrication of precision sensors, jewelry, timepieces and automotive electronics. 

ExactWeld 230 also incorporates Coherent’s innovative SmartWeld™ technology for producing complex “beam wobble” patterns, including circular and zigzag paths. SmartWeld™ enables bridging of larger gaps, which relaxes tolerances, increases process flexibility, and delivers welds with higher quality and reproducibility.

Unlike many competitive products, which address only part of the entire welding process (e.g. just a laser, part handling robotics or process monitoring equipment), Coherent ExactWeld delivers a complete, end-to-end solution. For example, a specific solution may include an integrated vision system for either operator or automated part monitoring, a pneumatically actuated precision fixturing (including sensors), and/or a rotary table for part loading/unloading. Plus, Coherent backs up ExactWeld with complete process development support to aid in the production of task-specific process recipes, and operator training to ensure operator proficiency. Furthermore, Coherent’s global network of offices and service facilities provides ongoing local support for existing processes and continued process development.
