After SAUER had set the benchmark for the machining of CVD and PCD tool blades with its LASERTEC 20 PrecisionTool, the product portfolio in the ULTRASONIC range has now been extended by the addition of the ULTRASONIC 20 linear. This machine is capable of machining carbide metal tool bodies economically.
“Friction welding – a process with a future” – KUKA already advertised with this slogan back in 1966 and has long since been proven right. Fast, safe and economical: characteristics that distinguish this process and have made it indispensable down to the present day. In particular, the combination of different materials is a major argument for this technology. KUKA was very quick to recognize the advantages of friction welding and has continued to develop the process over the years. Today, the Augsburg-based company can look back on a 50-year success story.
