MATERIAL PROCESSING MACHINING SOLUTIONS
CUSTOMISED LASER SYSTEMS FOR HIGHEST DEMANDS
Each of the ILS laser systems is adapted to the individual needs of our customers taking into consideration some essential criteria such as ergonomy, stability, efficiency, precision, cycle time, etc. The machines can be equipped with all sorts of linear and rotary axis, vision systems, turntables, robots, multiple laser sources for different tasks, etc. The systems are designed, assembled, and tested at the ILS premises.
Abrasion-resistant marking, fine surface engraving, deep engraving on different metals, steel, stainless steel, aluminium, plastics, ceramics, glass, lacquer, gold, silver, bronze, titanium, carbide, brass, wood, leather, organic materials, etc.
Perfectly suitable for procedures such as numbering of parts (serial numbers), QR codes, data matrix codes, bar codes, texts, logos, graphics, product identification, day and night design, surface structuring, etc.
Ideal for many kinds of industries like automotive, aerospace, electronics, consumer goods, medical, nautic, cosmetics, etc.
Laser cutting can be performed by means of continuous or pulsed laser radiation. Almost every kind of material such as metals, acrylics, plastics, paper, and organic materials can be processed.
Laser cutting is used where complex outlines (two- or three-dimensional) as well as precise and fast processing is required.
Typical cutting laser sources are CO2, Nd:YAG, and fiber lasers.
Compared to alternative methods, such as punching, laser cutting can be used economically even at very low batch sizes.
Laser beam welding is used in manufacturing processes where two or more parts / material pieces need to be joined together with high welding speed, high levels of stability, and very low thermal distortion. Excellent beam welding surfaces can be obtained.
Welding lasers are suitable for a wide range of sheet metal welding applications in industrial high-volume manufacturing, from heat conduction welding in the consumer goods industry to longitudinal seam welding of tubes.
Due to its short wavelength close to the aluminum absorption peak, the automotive industry selects high brightness diode lasers as the tool of choice for aluminum welding in body-in-white (BIW) applications.
Lasers and mainly laser diodes are the “tool of choice” for plastic welding (polymer).
Depending on the required application fiber lasers of up to 4 kW and laser diodes up to 40 kW are used for welding processes.
Laser drilling is one of the few techniques for producing high-aspect-ratio holes. The laser drilling process allows a great repeatability and a high rate of work.
Laser drilling is mainly used in the medical field as well as in the automotive and aeronautic industry. Corresponding applications include among others aerospace turbine-engine cooling holes, laser fusion components, and printed circuit board micro-vias (PCB).
Laser Brazing is a joining process that needs the addition of an external material. It can be wire, powder or fine joining sheet. Materials to join are in general different; eg : steel with aluminum . Industrial Laser Systems supplies complete solutions with real time temperature control of the process. Perfectly suitable for applications in the automotive, aviation/aerospace, electronics, medical as well as many other industries.
Ultra short pulse lasers (pico second laser/ nano second laser / femto second laser) are used in precision and micromachining. Due to the extremely short laser pulses, material removal takes place almost without heat. As a result, the smallest and filigree parts can be produced burr-free and without heat distortion.
Numerous applications can be found in medical technology, precision mechanics, automotive industry, optics and electronics industry, environmental and measuring technology, jewelery and design industry, etc.
APPLICATION, ENGINEERING, AND DESIGN
Our application and engineering department analyses carefully our customers demands. First of all trials will be performed allowing the qualification of the laser settings for a given process. This is an important step and enables us to validate the type of source, its power measurements and its ability to fulfill our customers process requirements. Although the machines are made on demand, ILS always integrate standard elements in the systems. This allows us to maintain the continuous existence of your working tool and to optimize maintenance across the years.
In some of the machines two kinds of laser sources can be integrated. ILS were the first who have developed such a concept on their laser machining solutions.This allows the optimization of each laser source, while still working on the same machine. Thus you’ll win more room and you will save money.
The laser technology is a fast evolving sector and we must integrate the most effective, sturdy and adapted sources to the need of our customers fitting perfectly in an ecological and sustainable development logic. Thus our welding or cutting systems are built with sources having energetic yield above 30%.
