The FLW 3000 ENSIS is a fiber laser welder from Amada (Isehara, Japan) that uses the company’s ENSIS laser technology in welding. The FLW provides Process Range Expansion that includes the ability to bring its results to reflective materials such as brass and copper.
The product is equipped with a rotating lens; the laser beam is no longer aligned with a specific point along the target path. Instead, it circles within a small area as it is welding. This feature makes it possible to bridge large and uneven gap sizes. The heat input into the material is also optimized and results in defined weld edges with virtually no unnecessary deposits of material, according to the company.
Other features include Automatic Beam Focus, which adjusts the focus lens to an optimum setting based on the set welding conditions; Teaching Assist System, which uses a CCD camera to compensate for any deviation from the targeted welding path; and a Z-Indicator in which height position and welding points can be directed with the cross target during teaching setup.
