Winbro Launches High Speed 5-Axis Laser Welding System

25 November, 2021

Winbro has launched the latest addition to the acclaimed HS300 range of system solutions, the HSW300. The HSW300 machine is a dedicated 5-axis Fiber Laser Welding system offering a compact solution for high-integrity applications.

Fiber laser welding offers the highest-strength autogenous welds in metal alloys. The optical beam delivery is customised to the application, with the option of a 2- or 3-axis scanner. Beam wobbling may be used, allowing the process parameters to be optimised for joining the broadest range of metals.

The HSW300 has a remarkably small footprint (Just over 1m wide), and uses Winbro’s proprietary ACNC64 software which operates on a Windows 10-based operating system in conjunction with Winbro's TCPro/TCPost processing software. The system can be supplied with a variety of laser sources up to 2kW, has a patented part probing system and offers an integral vision system for local feature position correction and alignment.

It is ideal as a replacement for legacy welders using arc, electron beam or solid-state lasers, and also for emerging sectors such as electric vehicles where there is a requirement for welding of dissimilar metals.

Winbro’s Chief Commercial Office Andy Lawson said “Winbro has long been known for the advanced laser welding capability of some of our larger laser machines. Recognising the growth in demand for Micro laser welding, we have developed a dedicated compact laser welding system based on our HS300 platform which is already demonstrating class-leading productivity in its laser ablation, laser drilling and high-speed EDM drilling variants. We believe this will enable us to compete in fast-evolving sectors including electric vehicles, fuel cells and Hydrogen.”
