Partenaire Precitec

Cailabs, a pioneer in laser beam shaping, and Precitec, a leading provider of 3D metrology and laser technology solutions, are pleased to underline their partnership by offering tailored solutions for the e-mobility market.

The partnership between the two companies has been a center of innovation and excellence since its inception in 2018 as part of the Horizon 2020 project CUSTODIAN. They have seamlessly combined their expertise and pushed the boundaries of industrial laser processes.

The cornerstone of this collaboration is the integration of Cailabs’ advanced beam shaping modules into Precitec’s state-of-the-art laser beam welding heads. This integration is specifically designed to meet the growing demands of the e-mobility market, offering unparalleled precision and efficiency in laser welding.

The challenges of laser welding in e-mobility, particularly with reflective and thermally conductive materials such as copper and aluminum, have been specifically addressed in recent months by Cailabs’ beam shaping technology. This improves the interaction of the laser with these materials, ensures optimum energy absorption and improved welding quality. Integration with Precitec’s advanced laser welding heads not only overcomes traditional welding limitations, but also opens up new possibilities for advanced manufacturing techniques in the growing e-mobility sector.

This partnership is poised to make a significant impact on the e-mobility market. “The collaboration between Cailabs and Precitec is a testament to our commitment to driving innovation in laser technology,” says Jean-François Morizur, CEO of Cailabs, “and this new product is just the beginning.” Klaus Löffler, Managing Director of Precitec adds, “The integration of Cailabs’ beam shaping expertise into our welding systems opens up new possibilities for e-mobility manufacturers worldwide in terms of precision and efficiency in laser welding.
