Under the motto ‘20 years of experience in laser processing’ visitors were immersed in the world of laser technology 11-12 September. The highlight of this year’s in-house fair was the first live presentation of the Watchdog analysis tool which will provide a cornerstone for improving service quality at eurolaser in future. It provides the customer with an overview of all the essential functions of the laser system at all times. Remote diagnostics means that service operations can be scheduled better and errors can be resolved more quickly. An important step to make the processes of efficient plant technology even more reliable in future.
The laser specialist presented their latest developments in the spacious demo room. The major focus was on the automation and flexibility of the laser systems. The automatic Shuttle Table system was presented which makes it possible to change tables with the push of a button. While the laser cuts the second table module is used for loading and unloading. In addition, eurolaser demonstrated the fascinating combination of parallel processing of up to three different materials on one system. The tools used were a CO2 laser, 1KW milling tool and oscillating knife. An example of this flexible processing was demonstrated using a common pattern with partners Canon, ERPA, Evonik and 3A Composites.
However, this was not the only reason why a visit to the exhibition was worthwhile as guests could also enjoy comprehensive expert knowledge. In addition to the internal laser specialists from the Application Centre in Lüneburg, numerous partner companies were also on-site. An exhibition space was created for this purpose. This made it possible to introduce upstream and downstream production stages, related applications and complementary techniques in a practical manner. The extensive offering facilitated good starting points for networking and provided visitors with specialised expertise across many industries.
In addition to the flat-bed printing system presented by Canon, visitors could gather information about robotics, filter and cooling systems, acrylic bending machines, laser marking systems, positioning technology, packaging and materials specialists from software to plastic recycling. The programme was rounded off by practice-oriented lectures by the eurolaser ACADEMY team and the partner companies, numerous live demonstrations, guided tours and an evening with live music.
“We are pleased that we were able to welcome so many visitors and partners from all over the world at our premises,” says managing director Matthias Kluczinski. “From a technical perspective we were able to offer a lot to our guests by providing them with a broad range of lectures and product presentations. The exhibition was characterised by a fantastic, cooperative atmosphere and was a great success both for our guests as well as our partners.”
