     “Reflection diagnosis gives us an innovative measurement tool to verify

     successful welding.” Frank Brunnecker, Vice President LaserWelding at 23.04.2014 LPKF Laser & Electronics AG. As of autumn 2010, reflection diagnosis will Characters: 470

     be available as an option on LPKF welding systems. (The company will

     present the method at the K show in Germany in Duesseldorf, October 27 to November 3, 2010 Hall 11, Booth# E04).

LPKF Laser & Electronics AG Reflection diagnosis makes use of the physical effect of light reflection at Laser Plastic Welding boundary surfaces. Before welding there are in effect two boundaries Gundstr. 15 between the components. When light also laser light impinges on D-91056 Erlangen these boundaries, a certain amount of light can be reflected. Areas which

    Kai Bentz (CFO)

     This method also allows the quality of a welded seam to be evaluated Shares: during the actual welding process. The integration of the reflection diag-Prime Standard

    ISIN 0006450000 nosis system into the laser head gives the LPKF LQ-TwinWeld3D hybrid
