K-Lab International comes to the UK

05 October, 2018 at 3:49 PM


Laser Trader Limited has recently been appointed as the Exclusive Distributor and Representative for the UK and Ireland of K-Lab International. K-Lab is the global technology leader for scan head laser welding systems. K-Lab’s innovative welding systems allow precise, highly repeatable welds for the most complex applications, at laser powers of up to 5kW. K-Lab’s unique K-Draw software allows revolutionary part repositioning functionality through an intuitive user interface, cutting set-up times from hours to minutes. By removing the need for time consuming robot teaching, consumer productivity and profitability can be dramatically increased.

The Scout system has seen great success in the emerging areas of battery welding, with both Samsung and LG in Korea strong adopters of the technology. Welding of heat exchangers, small scale electronics and automotive parts such as seat panels and recliner assemblies have seen similar success. Any part requiring a high number of highly precise welds will benefit from the K-lab Scout System.
