08 September 2021 ProCareLight widens its business scope

LASERKUBIK- a new laser enclosure for an innovative laser cleaning system ProCareLight, a company specialized in laser safety that spun-out of ICFO in 2013, is widely known in the research and industrial environments as the most experienced consultancy advisor in the field. Recently it has widened its business scope by supplying laser protection products and developing its LASERKUBIK customized enclosures for industrial manufacturing laser cells.

In collaboration with the leading automated welding company Serra Soldadura, Procarelight has designed, built and installed a LASERKUBIK enclosure for an innovative laser cleaning system in an automotive factory in Hungary.

This innovative laser cleaning technology is being introduced into factories and assembly lines, especially into the automotive sector and in this case in Hungary for the cleaning of the Front Subframes of the Volkswagen MEB41.

The laser manufacturer TRUMPF has designed new systems that can deliver up to 2 KW of infrared pulsed radiation, capable of removing residues from previous welding operations and thus preparing the manufactured part for the finishing stages.

The LASERKUBIK for this project has length-width dimensions of 4.5 x 2.75m, a total height of 4m, and provides the necessary protection for the operation of the new TRUMPF Tru-Micro laser and the protection of the rest of the machinery and workers.

’It is essential to prevent direct or diffuse optical radiation produced in laser manufacturing processes from reaching people where it can cause permanent injuries, especially to the eyesight.’ JM Silvestre, ProCareLight CEO

It should be remembered that European Union legislation obliges companies to take measures to avoid exposing workers to artificial optical radiation, through Directive 2006/25/EC, which has been transposed into the legislation of all member states.

ProCareLight offers its LASERKUBIK enclosures for production cells, facilitating the use of laser technology with total safety and helping its customers to comply with the obligations for the health of their workers, in terms of protection against radiation from laser systems.
