LPKF Laser & Electronics introduces the LQ-Smart, a compact laser plastic welding system first presented as a prototype during the June 2012 LASYS trade fair in Germany. Derived from the LPKF LQ-Integration, the LQ-Smart offers the same dependable welding performance at a smaller size.
With a combined laser and clamping unit measuring 13 x 24 x 15 inches and a uniquely small cabinet size of 12 x 21 x 16 inches, the LQ-Smart is ideal for production environments with limited space and can be used as a standalone system or integrated into an automated production line. The system is easy to use, includes a drawer for welding-parts as well as a quick-change upper clamping tool, and ensures a laser safety class one rating.
The LQ-Smart utilizes transmission laser welding which creates a flawless, reliable connection by removing mechanical motion and minimizing thermal reaction. It is ideal for a wide range of applications in industries such as automotive, medical, consumer electronics, and the food industry.
