One of ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s specialties is laser-cutting pillar cov-
erings for motor vehicles. These components, made with back
injection molded materials, must be cut very cleanly and precisely
after the injection molding process. They require a high level of
path accuracy and a clean, smooth cut – features that are guaran-
teed by our laser robot. ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s complete system
solutions ensure a high level of process security and fast applications.
The back injection molding process for film components is gaining
popularity in the automotive industry. Before the injection process,
the film is cut using laser systems from ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY.
It is important for this process to be clean and extremely precise.
ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s scanner technology, combined with the
laser robot or the FLACS.SCAN, guarantees these characteristics.
In addition, we have built up a wealth of expertise in the area of
fixture building, which is combined with vacuum technology to form
the basis for this process.
In general, rear window shelves with fabric decorations
cannot be processed using stamping equipment.
Stamping equipment is not flexible enough, and it does
not make clean cuts. Laser systems allow these
components to be manufactured with a high level of
precision and without filament formation.
In processing automotive bumpers, ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY offers systems
for removing the bumper from the injection molding machine as well as
laser systems for cutting the different variants. Shelf-type robots are often
used for removing parts from the injection molding machine; they also
perform follow-up tasks, such as sprue cutting, flaming, creating variants,
etc. The laser-cutting systems produce various chrome liner versions,
license-plate designs, cutouts for exhaust-gas cleaning systems and hitch
fittings. The advantage is that the different variants can be realized in a
highly precise way after painting, and without post-processing.
In processing door modules, ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY offers systems
for a wide variety of components. For instance, we can perforate
windowsills in order to allow later vacuum sealing, cut door inserts
for later welding, and process back injection molded arm rests
with precise edges. For these components, a clean, smooth cut is
essential for later high-quality use.
In a subsequent process, door modules are covered by a film. This requires
vacuum holes to be made. The vacuum holes are created very quickly and
precisely using our FLACS.SCAN laser-cutting system. The holes have a very
small diameter and are no longer visible after they are covered. The laser
process also makes it possible to avoid burr formation.
Cylinder head gaskets manufactured with a metal-rubber compo-
site usually need to be cut after the injection process.
ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s FLACS.SCAN laser-cutting system is used
here to guarantee fast, highly precise cutting. A simple repro-
gramming process allows a wide variety of variants to be cut in a
very short amount of time.
