Fully automated, autonomous production center for laser poles
Soupole is the first fully automated production system for laser-welded lighting poles. Coiled, rolled steel sheets of different thicknesses and surface types are easily transformed into conical shapes. These conical shapes allow forming of the pole in a laser welding process, which offers many advantages compared to other commonly used production processes.
The Soupole system is the best solution for mass production of conical hollow sections/profiles for the automotive and construction industries.
Benefits at a glance:
- High weld speed
- Superb weld seam quality with 100% penetration assured
- No post-weld seam treatment required (beginning and end of weld seam, leveling)
- New possibilities regarding material type and coatings
- First step towards engineered poles
