Laser cleaning of surfaces enables a perfect bonding of different materials by a contactless and dry process.
Typically, release agents, oils, oxides or contaminations are removed without residue and contact points are specifically prepared for further processing. By selecting suitable process parameters and tailor-made beam shaping, the surface structure remains undamaged in contrast to abrasive processes and the process is more environmentally friendly than wet chemical cleaning. Automation controls ensure a continuous level of highest quality in the cleaning result.
In tire manufacturing the perfectly clean surface allows application of value adding functions such as:
- Self sealing materials
- Noise reduction foams
- RFID transponders
Key benefits of using laser cleaning for bonding preparation include:
- Repeatable precision cleaning for safe bonds
- Dry process - without blasting media or wet chemicals
- Significantly more compact footprint than washing machines
- Environmentally friendly process
- Inline integration
