Rofin has released a remote welding system, known as the RWSflex.
With a new control unit from ABB and more flexible programming, the high-speed welding system opens up new possibilities for creating laser-step-welding of any geometry.
Due to the extended operating distance, RWSflex offers a larger working area of 1,450 x 3,200 x 700mm. This is based on a focal length of 1,600mm. System dynamics have been optimised as well to further decrease unproductive welding downtime.
Further highlights of the RWSflex are its offline programming capability, which ensures more flexible work preparation, as well as the freely programmable position of the exit window of the laser beam. The cover of the traversing path protects the beam control unit against the laser beam reflections and welding spatter from the process.
RWSflex is operated with CO2 Slab lasers from Rofin's patented DC Series.
