THE TruLaser Station 5004 from TRUMPF is a compact and ergonomic workstation for deposition laser welding with wire.

The Station 5004 offers a first in laser processing – an optical stereomicroscope has been replaced by an electronic stereomicroscope.

In contrast to workstations with optical stereomicroscopes the difference is that the new microscope has been separated from the laser optics. Now the operator adjusts the monocular of the microscope to his needs. It no longer has to be oriented to the size of the part.

Both cameras of the microscope offer a complete, three-dimensional exposure of the work pieces. And the work station is very comfortable too, because even the laser parameters can be displayed in the microscope.

This means the operator no longer needs to look away from the microscope to change the laser settings. Only the laser beam of the TruLaser Station 5004 moves, the work piece remains stationery.

This allows for greater precision with simultaneously longer traverse path and higher work piece weight.

At the same time, the workstation is extremely compact with a footprint requirement that is less than 1.5 square metres. Vacuum extraction and lasers (up to 150 watts) are integrated.

The opening in the protective cover requires no additional work space next to the machine. When open, a crane or forklift can be used for loading.

Because the electronic microscope sends a camera signal automatically, the welding process can also be reproduced on a monitor. An appropriately equipped PC enables individual processing images to be stored.

The control unit can guide three linear axes and one optional rotating axis simultaneously and makes different processing modes possible.

In addition to manual welding using a joystick, the new workstation also allows programming in the teach-in mode. Guided welding using any programmed contours as well as automatic NC welding without additional materials are also possible.
