Efficient laser activated bonding
The laser bonding technique, which is based on a laser-activated adhesive, is very quick to apply in manufacturing and provides a strong, waterproof bond between materials.
The adhesive tape is activated immediately during assembly by being irradiated with a laser beam. No curing time is required, making the process quick and efficient.
A major advantage of the new technique is that, while it provides a strong bond, it’s easy to rework the materials if an error occurs in manufacturing.
The material can be deactivated through re-exposure to a laser beam, allowing easy reassembly or replacement of a component. This eliminates time-consuming and labour-intensive removal of residual adhesive when a product needs to be reworked.
Nolato has developed a complete system for the new bonding technique, including laser equipment, adhesive and technical solutions.
