Laser Perforating with JENOPTIK-VOTAN® A Compact: Optimized, Compact Standard Layout for Maximum Efficiency in the Tightest Space

The patented laser perforating process from Jenoptik for airbag covers opens up completely new design possibilities in vehicle design.

JENOPTIK-VOTAN® A Compact

Laser perforating with JENOPTIK-VOTAN® A Compact you can integrate precise, predetermined breaking points into plastic components. This is currently the most efficient and reliable process on the market, and has a proven track record — particularly for safety-related components such as airbag covers.

In this patented process, a laser creates several successive rows of blind holes on the rear side of the material, creating a tear line along the contour of the airbag flap. A minimal residual wall thickness is retained in the decorative layer. The perforation line is invisible. However, if a situation arises in which the airbag has to deploy, the material tears along the weakened line.

The compact laser perforation system takes up minimal space, allowing cost-effective and simple integration at your manufacturing site. Various types of single and multi-layered plastics can be processed easily using this system. The sensor-guided cutting guide automatically compensates for any unevenness or changes in material thickness. All products in the JENOPTIK-VOTAN® A series are also completely non-contact and non-wearing. In this way, the industry-proven laser perforating process meets the highest aesthetic demands while delivering on safety and efficiency.

Benefits

  • Cost-effective: Low investment costs.
  • Space-saving: Can be installed in the smallest of spaces.
  • Economic: Process multi-layered materials in just one process step.
  • Functionally reliable: Precise residual wall thicknesses thanks to sensor-guided laser technology.
  • Flexible: Variably adjust the type and contour of the perforation holes, and the distance between them.
  • Non-contact: Materials and tools are protected during processing.




Fields of Application

  • Automotive industry: Predetermined breaking points for passenger, lateral, thorax and knee airbags in dashboards and interior trim.
