TURNTABLE (“POTTER’S WHEEL”)
ARGUMENTS IN FAVOR OF OUR TURNTABLES:
- Works like a potter’s wheel
- Very slow, precise rotation
- Fast processing of very large components possible
- No hand-controlled movement needed
- Uniform weld seam with fewer weld starts
- Very light construction
- Broad range of applications
VDM 330 PLANAR TURNTABLE
Planar turntable for laser welding large components.
When laser welding large components, the operator has the challenge of moving the laser head uniformly along the component. This can quickly lead to imprecise positioning. With our VDM 330 planar turntable, you can work comfortably even on these components. At a slow rotation speed, the component’s movement ensures more precise positioning.
The VDM 330 planar turntable has been specially developed for large components with a rotationally symmetrical course of the laser welding contour, which is usually too large for “normal” rotary axes. Even if the component fits into a “normal” rotary axis, this rotary axis often turns too fast to achieve adequate working speed for large component diameters.
Thanks to its very large gear conversion, the VDM 330 turntable allows comparatively slow rotation speed for more precise positioning of the laser welding wire.
Another advantage: Our welding positioner is compact and doesn’t take up much room during laser welding.
The VDM 330 turntable can connect to ALPHA LASER devices ALW, ALT, ALFlak and ALFlakMax with an R-A power control unit present.
