Coherent ExactWeld 230 turnkey solution Click image to enlarge

Coherent Inc. has released the Coherent ExactWeld 230 turnkey solution for automated precision laser welding of metal parts.

The ExactWeld 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 enhance weld quality and increase production yields, process consistency and operator productivity, Coherent says. ExactWeld 230 is optimal 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 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.

Specific solutions may include an integrated vision system for either operator or automated part monitoring, a pneumatically actuated precision fixturing (including sensors), and/or a rotary table for part loading/unloading., Coherent also offers process development support to aid in the production of task-specific process recipes, and operator training.
