Laser processing of single batch tubes - 3D laser cutting of metals How does it work?
The e-mobility megatrend requires new solutions for production of car body parts. Bent and hydro formed tubes and tube frames are becoming crucial elements in e-car design, but processing these parts presents particular challenges to suppliers of manufacturing equipment.
Due to safety tracking requirements, single frame production is one of those challenges. Single frame production means that all frame tubes are processed in a single batch (or lot size one) and then joined to one frame. The sheer number of different tubes to be cut would require a huge amount of fixtures using traditional laser cutting systems. Highly flexible laser machining solutions for processing tubes, which differ in size, shape and cutting task, are necessary.
