Mobile use of the mobile laser system with cladding on a bearing seat

Mobile and flexible

Mobile laser systems

The ALOflex is a flexible robot system for mobile laser hardening, laser cladding and CMT welding.

Mobile laser system for laser hardening and cladding

Highest flexibility – smallest dimensions

The ALOflex concept

With the ALOflex mobile laser system, we have deliberately decided to outsource sensitive units to the mobile media station. Dust-sensitive components such as the cooler, PC, laser and monitor are not exposed to direct laser operation and are therefore fully protected. The chassis with robot can be kept as light and compact, agile and flexible as no other mobile laser system.

The robot is connected to the media station via a 15 metre long, flexible energy chain and has a huge, mobile work area.

Another advantage of the ALOflex is that the robot can be detached from the crawler track and used directly on a component or on a linear unit as an ALOhybrid with the benefits of a stationary laser processing system.

ALOflex – simply flexible and mobile!

Technology in mobile use

Wide range of applications

ALOhard and ALOhardzoom laser hardening, ALOpowder laser powder cladding and ALOarc CMT welding in mould and tool making and mechanical engineering

Specific hardening of metallic surfaces and repair or reconditioning of highly stressed component surfaces

Suitable for processing forming tools, machine parts, cutting tools or screw conveyors, bearing seats, rollers and much more

Laser hardening

with fixed and variable laser track widths

  • For maximum hardness values on the component surface
  • Improvement of wear behavior

Arc welding

CMT welding with ALOarc

  • Specially suited for high deposition rates
  • For coating and joint welding
  • Additive manufacturing

Cladding

with powder

  • Application of wear-resistant coatings on components
  • Rapid modification of component geometries

Additional applications can be optionally employed: laser powder cladding with interior cladding optics* ALOpowderID, laser wire cladding* ALOwire, hardening with dynamic scanning optics* ALOhardscan, and a hybrid technology combining wire and powder cladding* ALOtwin.

*For these applications, modules of the mobile laser system need to be adjusted.
