Trumpf has announced that over the next two years, PSA Peugeot Citroën will be equipping its production sites with additional, next-generation TruDisk disk lasers, according to a recent agreement between the two companies. The French auto maker has asked Trumpf to supply the company with disk lasers in a range of output levels and beam qualities from its TruDisk series. PSA will now have a quantity of TruDisk lasers that number in the double digits for welding and soldering body components on its various models of cars.
PSA has used disk lasers for many years for the welding and soldering involved in auto body construction. The company awarded the order based on TruDisk's low operating and investment costs and its high degree of availability in production.
