The Al-Rock from Alpha Laser is a mobile robot for targeted hardening of metal surfaces whether it be at a set work station or deployed on-site to a customer. With the self-driving caterpillar track, users can move the laser right to the workpiece. There is no need to remove the components to be hardened, and Alpha Laser says that the reworking cost is significantly reduced. The laser beam precisely follows the workpiece contour in free 3D movements. This enables weld edges, grain structures and localized areas to be hardened easily. Temperature-dependent control of the laser power brings the heat precisely to the desired location to achieve the exact degree of hardening needed.
