With the ENSIS beam technology, the laser beam weaving function and the function of the cold wire feeder, the AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS fiber laser welding cell produces high-quality, reliable results even when welding large gap sizes. The M2, M3 and M5 model variants cover all parts geometries.

Seit ihrer Einführung erfreuen sich die AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS-­Faserlaserschweißzellen steigender Beliebtheit. Das liegt insbesondere an den vielen Fertigungsmöglichkeiten, die die High-End-Schweißzellen in den drei Modellvarianten M2, M3 und M5 bieten. Wenn es beispielsweise darum geht, Aluminium mit einem koEver since they were introduced, the AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS fiber laser welding cells have been growing in popularity. This is due, in particular, to the many production capabilities made available by the M2, M3 and M5 model variants of the high-end welding cells. For example, when required to weld aluminum with a design-imposed gap size of 1.5 mm, solid-state lasers generally come up against their limits. By contrast, the AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS rises to this challenge with ease because it can include, exclude or modify as many as three parameters during the welding process. These include the weaving function with the side-to-side movement of the laser beam, the ENSIS variable beam control which modulates the beam properties and, last but not least, the option of using the cold wire function in the process. “Every user is easily able to weld a 1.5 mm wide gap in an aluminum sheet absolutely reliably and extremely quickly,” explains Axel Willuhn, Product Manager for Punching and Laser Technology at AMADA GmbH. “This functionality is unique to the AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS fiber laser welding cell.”

Reducing personnel costs

DWhat is more, the AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS fiber laser achieves weld penetration depths that would not be expected of a 3 kW unit. This is complemented by an exceptionally high welding process quality which reduces cost-intensive reworking to an absolute minimum. This prevention of personnel costs testifies to the welding cell’s high payback potential. Another advantage: The AMADA fiber laser has been designed to machine all commonly used materials and thanks to this versatile all-in-one concept, there is no need to change the beam source used in the system.

Variable extension levels

The outstanding welding quality, welding speed and productivity of the AMADA FLW-3000ENSIS fiber laser welding cell are ensured by all three model variants: the M2, M3 and M5. The basic equipment present in each welding cell includes AMADA’s proprietary fiber laser, a six-axis robot, a rotary tilting table system and a safety booth with tested class T2 passive laser protection system. The three model variants are characterized by different extension levels. The M2 variant with stationary robot is ideal for machining smaller parts geometries. The M3 model, in which the robot travels along a modular linear axis, is perfect for mid-sized to large parts and more complex geometries. Finally, the M5 version with linear axis and two rotary tilting tables acting as a changeover table system represents the solution for exacting demands in terms of cycle times and complexity.
