Carrs have gone to the next stage of their capital spend on the latest TRUMPF 6 kW disk laser. The laser provides important backup for the 4 kW disk already installed at Carrs and, being situated in different factories, allows Carrs to have crucial production cover for all their product lines.
The YAG laser will weld 6 mm (and more depending on the joint) of steel and aluminium. Titanium can be welded up to 5 mm.
With a wavelength of 1030 nm and beam quality of 8 mm mrad, this machine is now the best Carrs has in the building; it has a good working envelope and still welds well with varying joint focus and fit up. Gear welding with the improved beam quality means beautiful neat deep welds are possible every time.
