BMW X6: Photon laser-soldering experts help make rear-end a head-turner
13. August 2018
Form and function are perfect combined in the BMW X6. That’s why the Italian supplier CO.ST.AT. wanted to leave nothing to chance in the production of the trunk lid and turned to Photon. The task: joining two deep-drawn components made of electrolytically galvanized sheet steel by means of laser-beam soldering.
Worldwide, Photon has the longest experience in designing and implementing laser-beam soldering processes on trunk lids (since 1996) and is therefore the obvious choice for carrying out highly complex projects in this area in the shortest possible time.
In addition to high-quality implementation, planning is crucial. It is important to strike a perfect balance between the implementation of the component design and the requirements and limitations of the production process.
During the planning stage for the trunk lid of the BMW X6, Photon worked together with the customer and the end customer using 3D CAD data. Based on the resulting designs, Photon constructed a tensioning device for the laser-soldering process. Furthermore, as a partner of the deep-drawing tool manufacturer, Photon set up the supply chain for the pre-production series before it was handed over to the end customer BMW.
Thanks to Photon’s extensive experience, the process was completed in a very short space of time – with fewer unused components than originally estimated. The quality of the assemblies immediately convinced both CO.ST.AT. and BMW.
