Laser Welding System
Leister Technologies AG, a worldwide leader in plastic welding and hot-air equipment, showcased its NOVOLAS workstation laser welding system (WS-AT) to the global battery supply chain audience in September.

The WS-AT laser welding system is an all-inclusive, ready-to-use, class 1 solution. This complete, turn-key system can be customized for many component-assembly applications. With additional integrated safety features and interlocks, not available with basic laser systems, the WS-AT is suitable for three-shift operation, prototyping, as well as in research and development (R&D) lab environments. “The WS-AT includes a user-friendly HMI interface with online process control,” explains Fernando Santillana, project manager, with Leister Technologies, “once implemented, the system runs autonomously.”

The WS-AT laser demo featured the welding of production- ready battery modules provided by Covestro AG. The two-piece components are produced using flame retardant, Bayblend® FR3010 PC+ABS, a line of amorphous, thermoplastic polymer blends based on polycarbonate (PC). Bayblend is a material that withstands high strains and temperatures and is uniquely-suited to the manufacturing of safe and economical battery housings. According to Terry Davis, principal engineer, of Covestro LLC, “With this material, battery manufacturers can create reliable and leak-free battery enclosures.”

Leister Technologies AG has been a worldwide leader in plastic welding and hot-air equipment for more than 65 years. The Swiss manufacturer’s plastic-welding products are used in roof sealing systems, floor coverings, plastic sheeting, earthworks, hydraulic and tunnel engineering, process equipment manufacturing and for vehicle repair; its process heat products are used for activating, heating, curing, melting, shrinking, welding, sterilizing, drying and warming.
