Orwin International Integrates Laser with Twin Station Laser Welding System

Orwin International, an industrial automation machine builder, has combined a laser from JK Lasers into a twin station laser welding system. This laser welding system welds elements in a multi-cell battery.

Orwin designed two welding stations, after conducting trails at the applications laboratories of JK Lasers in Rugby. The welding stations use the time share feature of the laser. The time share functionality minimizes costs and accelerates production processes, by allowing two welding processes to be performed on two individual cells from one laser source.

The first welding station has automated the laser welding process of inter-cell connectors that are manually loaded, and thereby joining the positive and negative poles of nearby cells. Another station has automated the laser welding process of individual cells’ lids, when in a vacuum. JK Lasers and Orwin overcame the difficulties of constructing the laser project, to provide a laser welding system that surpassed the expectations of the customers.
