The new Coherent ExactWeld 230 is a turnkey solution for automated, precision laser welding of metal parts. It includes a 200 W (400 W 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.
