In our Centre d’Innovation, we carry our feasibility studies on laser welding our products on order from our customers. Laser welding is an innovative joining procedure for plastics and offers advantages that currently cannot be achieved with any other procedure. A very clean weld seam is created in laser welding, leaving behind no residues or loose particles of any kind around the seam. This fact makes the procedure especially interesting for the manufacture of medical devices, where the highest demands are placed on material and function. In contrast to ultrasonic welding, laser welding also permits joining components with electronic parts without compromising their properties or destroying them.
Laser marking is a method for engraving, removing, roughing, discolouring or foaming plastics. This allows plastic parts to be quickly and precisely labelled.
In our Innovation Centre there are 6 different laser sources available for test procedures on plastics.
