High-strength welds with EMAG laser welding technology
For example, for some time now the screw-type connection between differential housing and crown gear used by the German automotive industry has been replaced with a welded connection.
This reduces the material volume – an important cost factor, considering the enormous numbers of these components produced. At the same time, the weight of the differential housing has been reduced by approximately 1.2 kg. Looking at the progressive concentration on lightweight constructions in the automotive sector, this represents an enormous saving. Manufacture of the differential housing is a typical and an ideal example.
EMAG laser welding technology generates high-tensile welded joints that can replace the classical connections in many areas of application and thus reduce the cost of materials
- Less weight
- Lower costs
- Improved component quality
