          • Invisible and functionally reliable predetermined breaking points thanks to precise laser perforation

          • The patented laser perforation process from Jenoptik enables you to integrate precise, functionally reliable and invisible predetermined breaking points in plastic components in just one process step.

            The sensor-based Jenoptik laser perforation process meets the highest demands in terms of safety and aesthetics, allowing you to process plastic components in a fast and controlled manner. In just one step, for example, you can create predetermined breaking points in vehicle airbag covers that are invisible to passengers. The specially developed sensor technology from Jenoptik is so precise that you can precisely retain predetermined residual wall thicknesses. At the same time, the process ensures that the highest safety standards are met. Each individual processing point is monitored during the laser perforation process and compared against the corresponding parameter values. All data can be reliably archived in a traceability system.

            Unlike mechanical processes, laser perforation is completely non-contact. The non-wearing laser beam tool does not induce any mechanical stresses on the material. The process is also particularly clean and does not require any subsequent reworking because any dust generated is immediately extracted and cleaned. You can set the type, distances and contour of the holes according to your requirements — specific to the material you are currently processing. The process is therefore perfectly suited to the perforation of predetermined breaking points in plastics, textiles or leather.

            • Flexible: Exact and invisible predetermined breaking points in a wide range of materials thanks to precise sensor technology.
            • Economic: Process multi-layered materials in just one process step.

            • The patented laser scoring process from Jenoptik for airbag covers opens up completely new design possibilities in vehicle design. Use the series of JENOPTIK-VOTAN® A to perforate automotive parts in a precise way without damaging the material.

              Laser Perforation Machine for functionally reliable predetermined breaking points in airbag covers
              The procedure developed by Jenoptik for the laser scoring of airbag covers opens up completely new options for vehicle design. All products in the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® A series also work in a completely non-contact and wear-free manner. The leading procedure for laser scoring therefore combines the highest aesthetic demands with safety and efficiency.

              In the patented procedure for laser scoring, a laser creates a series of blind holes on the reverse of the material. This means that a weakening line is created along the contour of the airbag flap. Vehicle passengers will not notice the integrated breaking point. However, if a situation arises when the airbag needs to trigger, then the material rips open at the weakened point.

              • Unique: No other principle controls the process quality directly in the part.
              • Economical: Handle multi-layered materials in just one process step.
              • Fail-safe: Exact remaining wall thicknesses thanks to sensor-controlled laser technology.
              • Flexible: Variably adjust contour and tensile strength of the breaking point.
              • Non-contact: The processing is wear-free and preserves material.

              Fields of Application
              • Automotive industry: Laser scoring of breaking points for passenger, side, thorax, and knee airbags in dashboards and interior trim panels.

            • JENOPTIK-VOTAN® W Laser Welding System for Efficient Plastic Welding

            • Using energy-efficient diode technology, the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® W laser welding system is fast and reliable, and can join plastics without damaging the material or leaving a visible mark.

              The JENOPTIK-VOTAN® W is a powerful laser welding system that joins plastics efficiently, quickly and reliably using free-radiating diode technology. The process joins components with minimal thermal or mechanical load and without leaving any marks on the components. The weld seams are very strong and reproducible.

              At the heart of every JENOPTIK-VOTAN® W laser welding system is the free-radiating diode technology. Jenoptik has developed the diode laser line that can be switched on and off section by section specifically for large components. It consists of eight diode laser submounts in a compact housing, and creates a consistent line with a total length of around 100 mm. Each of these submounts can be switched on or off individually depending on the contour you want to weld.

              If several diode laser lines are arranged as an overall line (diode nest), components of almost all sizes can be joined very productively in just one run. The laser welding process is therefore extremely productive and saves operating costs. The laser welding system is already used successfully in industry.
