Laser Hardening

Laser Layer Surface Hardening with Motoman GP Series Robots

Laser hardening is a method aimed at improving component wear behaviour.

During laser hardening, the energy from the laser beam is applied directly to the component surface. The surface layer is heated up to the hardening temperature (>1000°C) in a reduced area within a very short period of time. When laser hardening, the laser beam and its adjustable focal spot are guided by a robot over the surfaces to be hardened.

For this process, you will need the high precision robotic control over TCP Path and speed which distinguishes Motoman robots from other brands.
