II-VI launches laser heads for welds

II‐VI Inc. introduced RLSK remote laser processing heads that enable precision welds critical in next-generation automotive manufacturing. The heads feature a new vision system with high-precision seam tracking capabilities that enable fillet welds. Fillet welds improve the mechanical fit and smooth action of closures such as doors, hoods and trunk lids. It is capable of positioning the laser beam over its entire 3-D working range in milliseconds with pinpoint positioning accuracy based on automated referencing to almost any workpiece physical feature.
