Application example – Laser hardening

LASCON controls high power laser processes in job shops and industrial manufacturing around the world

Integration of LASCON into high-power robotic laser tools

Customer problem and requirements

Laser hardening and cladding are high-power laser processes for large steel parts, such as big tooth wheels or drill heads in the oil industry.

Precise temperature control is needed to achieve maximum hardness. Accuracy of the hardening process is especially important as processed parts are very expensive and cannot be easily replaced or repaired in case they fail.

Solution by Mergenthaler

  • We are the market leader in industrial temperature control for these high power laser processes
  • Special two-color pyrometers together with the unique LASCON controller enable optimal laser material processing

Status quo

  • Global base of installations in production plants and scientific
    centers for almost 20 years
