Multi-axis laser cell Cyan TecTo address the needs of the automotive industry system builder Cyan Tec says it has developed a standard multi-axis robotic laser welding cell incorporating a 6-axis robot combined with a 2-axis tilt-and-turn manipulator to offer high levels of flexibility with eight programmable axes. The company claims this system can work on large components or assemblies and present them in such a way to reduce the complexity of the robot moves and compress the overall cycle time.

The Hyperion MAR30WF is a standard system using a 6-axis robot carrying a compact laser welding head from a multi-kW fibre laser source. The tilt and turn manipulator has an integral indexing system, which the company says allows parts to be safely unloaded and re-loaded during the welding cycle by an operator outside the Class 1 safety enclosure.
