Soupact

Designed for manual operation, but upgradeable to fully automated linear laser welding seams

The Soupact system is the right solution with respect to small investment costs with reduced outputs.

Soupact laser welding system for blanks

The entire machine can be packed in a 40’ container for shipping. Thus, the shipping cost is reduced significantly.

In addition, the Soupact system can be dismantled easily and brought to another location in a 40’ container. It is the ideal machine for back-up and production flexibility.

The continuous measurement seam tracking and quality control system guarantees a stable welding process, meeting the highest quality requirements. Gaps of <0.3 mm between the sheet metal are closed with Soufil wire. With the aid of our continuous gap closing and vision system, we are able to regulate the wire speed to ensure that sufficient material is always present in the melting pool.
