The AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS fiber laser welding cell technology stands for unique high-end welding with flexible automation capabilities. The three model variants – M2, M3 and M5 – offer individual capabilities.
Irrespective of which model variant the user chooses: All of them offer the same unique welding technology of the AMADA FLW system. “One highlight takes the form of the ENSIS variable beam control which permits the exceptionally precise adaptation of the energy penetration from the fiber laser. The laser mode and the resulting energy distribution can be optimally adapted for the material and the current job at all times,” explains Jörn Lota, Product Specialist for FLW Laser Welding at AMADA. “The innovative laser-weaving technology, for example for bridging even large gap sizes, the automatic focus adjustment that is integrated in the welding head, the camera-controlled Teach-Assist system as well as a range of nozzle types round off the AMADA FLW system. Thanks to the AMADA ENSIS technology, problems such as deformed parts, gap bridging, parts and position tolerances and the time and cost-intensive subsequent finishing processes are reduced to an absolute minimum.” And there are other benefits: Using the AMADA ENSIS technology, it is, in principle, possible to machine all weldable metals and all AMADA ENSIS fiber laser welding cells are equipped with T2 safety booths which also permit low personnel levels during production.
For all sizes
Thanks to the three model variants – the M2, M3 and M5 – the AMADA ENSIS technology can be combined to create individually automated manufacturing solutions. Thus, in addition to a stationary 6-axis robot and turning and tilting table, the M2 variant also possesses an integrated 2-station changeover table which is integrated into the wall of the booth. By offering short cycle times and rapid access, this makes the compact AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS M2 ideal for the processing of simpler and smaller parts geometries.
The M3 model variant also possesses a turning and tilting table. By contrast, the 6-axis robot travels on a 3000-mm-long linear axis. This ensures outstanding flexibility, in particular when machining more complex mid-sized and larger parts geometries. The linear axis is optionally available in the lengths 1500 and 4000 mm and the turning and tilting table can be freely positioned in the booth.
Minimized cycle time
Maximized automation is provided by the M5 model variant with its 6-axis robot mounted on a 4000-mm linear axis, as well as two turning and tilting tables which travel in accordance with the changeover table system. This guarantees minimized changeover times. The AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS M5 shows its full performance capability in the case of more complex parts geometries requiring relatively long setup times.
