Emerson has launched a new laser welder platform that provides high mix and batch manufacturers of plastic components with greater production capability without compromising product quality or performance.
The BransonTM GL-300 is a highly flexible quasi-simultaneous plastic joining solution, designed to deliver efficient high-quality welds in a wide range of applications and help manufacturers to increase production efficiency.
Manufacturers increasingly need machines and processes that can be quickly and cost-effectively adapted to changing production demands and specifications. For low volume, high mix manufacturers especially, flexible welding solutions that allow faster production start-up, provide a critical advantage. The Branson GL platform meets this need by combining highly efficient and accurate welds with cost-effective and easy-to-change tooling that enables faster set-up and adjustment for changing product specifications.
Manufacturing capability is further enhanced by a range of unique features, including:
- High-quality scanning system
- Easy-to-use HMI
- Large (300mm x 300mm) weld area
- Multiple weld modes
- Variable spot size as low as 0.5 mm
- Adjustable laser power source height
