Jenoptik’s Automotive division is presenting its laser machine series for 3D metal cutting JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM at EuroBLECH in Hanover, the leading trade fair for international sheet metal working technology Exhibition.
Laser cutting allows a highly efficient processing of complex metal parts. Compared to conventional machining methods, the non-contact laser process minimizes both the machining time due to lack of set-up times and the costs caused by tool wear. Due to its design and high flexibility, JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM is the ideal, virtually wear-free tool for processing of a variety of metal working parts. With repeat accuracy of up to 50 μm and also highest dynamics, this laser machine ranks among the most precise systems of its class.
In just one second, the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM cuts a circle or other standard contour. JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM cuts a circle or slot in only one second. This allows for a significantly shorter cycle time compared to other robot systems.
The system concept of the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM series is based on a beam guide inside the robot. This allows using laser sources with a power of up to 5 kW without having to use a complex external beam guide. At the same time, the equidistant beam path prevents the laser beam from pumping effects, ensuring a stable beam quality. This approach allows Jenoptik to deliver its customers a technological competitive advantage.
With its metal cutting laser machine series, Jenoptik serves the automotive industry by cutting e.g. complex car body and structural parts as well as hydroformed tubes, being used for exhaust systems or car body rail manufacturing. JENOPTIK-VOTAN® BIM is simple to integrate into production lines or combined processing units.
