JENvelt™ vision-enhanced laser tool

Ready-to-install optics module for accelerated process development and commissioning in laser material processing

The JENveltTM system combines a 2D Galvo Scanner, F-Theta lens and camera with integrated image processing and is rounded off with intelligent software. You will benefit from quicker development times and a smart software solution that guarantees optimitzed time-to-market. As a compact plug & play system, it can be easily integrated into existing systems and takes into account the processing requirements of laser production.

The core of the system is the all-in-one software, which combines scanner and laser control as well as image recognition. It maps production projects, monitors the ongoing process and evaluates and gives feedback to the data collected in the control system. Customers particularly appreciate the following advantages:

  • Acceleration of process development the through machine-capable “smart black box” concept

  • Integration of image processing opens up new possibilities for setting up and optimizing laser processes
  • Optical know-how for selecting the optimal components and software algorithms is key. Laser machine manufacturers require ready-to-install solutions from optics specialists such as Jenoptik
  • Image processing-based evaluation of the process enables in-process quality control

JENvelt™ stands for integration and optical know-how

With the ready-to-install optical subsystem, we provide the answers to the new challenges in the production or laser industry.

Flexibility with the JENveltTM, no matter the laser application or task

The JENveltTM subsystem is perfect for a wide range of applications in laser material processing. Different laser applications can be carried out with the same optical system in many industries, such as plastics, medical, electronics or automotive. The system components are selected to cover a very wide range of performance parameters. Instead of having to request, procure and commission an individual system configuration for each new application, the parameters can be easily converted to the new system configuration with the JENveltTM optics module once installed.

Typical tasks for which the JENveltTM is particularly suitable due to its accuracy and flexibility are:

  • Laser welding of metal and plastic
  • Laser cutting
  • Laser marking
  • Selective laser soldering
  • Laser engraving
  • Laser cleaning

JENvelt™ system software

The heart of the JENveltTM is its comprehensive software. It is very intuitive to use and user-friendly, which eliminates the need for extensive training of operating personnel after commissioning.

The software package offers a real-time and focused display that allows for easy reading of process-relevant data. In addition, very large amounts of data can be generated. Additonally, the software offers significant advantages in the following areas:

Compensation of tolerances and smart workpiece positioning

The laser path is precisely matched to the position of the workpiece. The JENveltTM repositions the laser spot during running processes if necessary.

Generation of a high-resolution image via stitching

The inline camera takes single shots, which are combined to create a high-resolution overall view of the workpiece. This is the basis for the alignment and orientation of the laser path.

Correction of the laser path using fiducial markers

The software determines the position of the path to be lasered based on reference points and corrects them as necessary. The software detects the reference points on the workpiece regardless of the position and alignment of the component. The software corrects the path to be lasered relative to the detected reference points. Corrections (shape matching) can also be made using the software.

Re-use of defective parts

Take a glimpse into how the optical plug & play system JENveltTM helps to realize resource-saving production in the context of the automotive industry. The challenge in this video was to repair a complex component instead of disposing of it. In cooperation with the Berger process factory, a laser drilling process was developed that creates holes for later disassembly of an assembly using lasers.

JENveltTM not only provides reliable control and positioning of the laser for the drilling process through intelligent software, but it also allows for reliable quality control of results. This is all possible with just one ready-to-install system that can be integrated into laser machines.
