The Profile Welding System (PWS) from Rofin is a turnkey laser welding system for high-speed tube and roll form applications. With its modular design, it can be integrated into lines performing continuous, high-speed seam welding.
The system includes a process sensor, precision linear actuators, and camera vision for automatic positioning of the laser beam and maintenance of consistent material fusion at welding speeds up to 196.85 FPM.
System parameters such as laser power, workpiece gap monitoring, and standoff are controlled and adjusted on-the-fly. Both 10-micron, diffusion-cooled slab CO2 lasers and 1-micron fiber resonators are available.
