Industrial applications for lasers
Over the years, Permanova Lasersystem AB has accumulated a wealth of experience in which solutions offer the greatest benefit to our customers. We know that car manufacturers that use production lines have certain requirements when it comes to their manufacturing equipment. Meanwhile, companies that produce sheet metal or welded products have some different requirements in respect of their equipment. Yet all of them have one thing in common – they need flexible and reliable equipment that performs the manufacturing step in the best possible way.
If you’re a line builder working with the manufacture of complete production line systems, or an automation company that requires subcontracted process tools or entire subsystems, then you may appreciate Permanova’s agility when it comes to customer adaptation and project management, in addition to the outstanding technical performance of our products.
In order to increase your company’s competitiveness, not least as a subcontractor, we strongly believe in our short-lead-time production concept. The ability to make the most of capital-intensive laser equipment is also well worth exploring. If you work with larger volumes, we also have solutions for fully automated production.
Every industry can benefit from the advantages of lasers, including the automotive industry, aerospace industry, and general industry.
Benefits of laser technology compared to traditional methods
No design limitations, no post-processing requirements, a high level of accuracy, easy to automate, and environmentally friendly.
Heating the various metal parts and the additive using a laser beam is a quick method of soldering compared with other soldering methods. Laser soldering results in a high-quality joint that can be painted directly without any additional work required.
Additive manufacturing (AM)
Surfacing, often also called additive manufacturing, makes it possible to quickly and cost-effectively produce components whose properties (dimensions, geometry, weight, etc.) make them difficult or sometimes impossible to manufacture using other methods.
In laser cutting, the laser beam heats up the material to its evaporation point. The beam penetrates the material and creates a cut.
Lasers are an excellent source of heat for hardening various materials, and they have many advantages over other hardening methods. One of the major advantages of using lasers for hardening is the high level of precision that makes it possible to harden specific areas.
Laser welding poses minimal risk in terms of deformation, it is quick, and it allows for single-sided access to the weld joint.
