News › JENOPTIK • State-of-the-art laser sys­tems for auto­mo­tive sup­plier Xin­quan in China

A Chi­nese auto­mo­tive sup­plier has orde­red an addi­tio­nal laser-sco­ring machine for pre­cision air­bag per­fo­ra­tion, inves­ting in indus­try lea­ding tech­no­logy for pro­ces­sing auto­mo­tive interiors.

Long-term cus­to­mer Jiangsu Xin­quan Auto­mo­tive Trim Co Ltd, loca­ted near Shang­hai, has orde­red an addi­tio­nal air­bag laser per­fo­ra­tion sys­tem from Jen­op­tik, after a recent deli­very of an iden­ti­cal sys­tem to the same cus­to­mer just a few weeks ear­lier. The new JENOPTIK-VOTAN A Scan sys­tem is cur­r­ently being set up and com­mis­sio­ned in Jena, Ger­many. Deli­very will take place shortly before summer.

Jen­op­tik Pre­si­dent & CEO Ste­fan Tra­e­ger: »We are par­ti­cu­larly plea­sed that Xin­quan pla­ced the order only a few days after res­uming their daily busi­ness after a multi-week shut­down. As manu­fac­tu­ring acti­vity in China actively incre­a­ses, Chi­nese car models will con­ti­nue to be equip­ped with lase­red air­bag solu­ti­ons from Jen­op­tik in the future.«

JENOPTIK-VOTAN A Scan is the latest mem­ber of the pro­duct family that enab­les more effi­ci­ent pro­ces­sing of safety sys­tem rela­ted mate­ri­als in the auto­mo­tive mar­ket. Using a fast-moving laser beam on a sta­tio­nary com­po­nent, the VOTAN A fires sen­sor-con­trol­led light pul­ses too pre­cisely cut pre­de­ter­mi­ned brea­king points in air­bag covers. This results in sim­pli­fied instru­ment panel air bag inte­gra­tion, impro­ved esthe­tics and incre­a­sed safety. Addi­tio­nally, the tech­no­logy can be adap­ted for pro­ces­sing sen­si­tive mate­ri­als such as lea­ther, foam foils, as well as sin­gle- and multi-layer mate­ri­als com­monly used for vehi­cle interiors.

About Jen­op­tik

Jen­op­tik is a glo­bally ope­ra­ting tech­no­logy group, which is active in the three pho­to­nics-based divi­si­ons Light & Optics, Light & Pro­duc­tion and Light & Safety. Opti­cal tech­no­lo­gies are the very basis of our busi­ness with the majo­rity of our pro­ducts and ser­vices being pro­vi­ded to the pho­to­nics mar­ket. Our key tar­get mar­kets pri­ma­rily include the semi­con­duc­tor equip­ment indus­try, the medi­cal tech­no­logy, auto­mo­tive and mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, traf­fic, avia­tion as well as the secu­rity and defense tech­no­logy indus­tries. Jen­op­tik is lis­ted on the Frank­furt Stock Exchange, has more than 4,100 employees and gene­ra­ted reve­nue of approx. 855 mil­lion euros in 2019.

The Light & Pro­duc­tion Divi­sion of Jen­op­tik is a glo­bal spe­cia­list in the opti­miz­a­tion of manu­fac­tu­ring pro­ces­ses. Our many years of expe­ri­ence and know-how in the field of indus­trial mea­su­re­ment tech­no­logy and opti­cal inspec­tion, modern laser-based mate­rial pro­ces­sing and highly fle­xi­ble robot-based auto­ma­tion enable us to deve­lop tailor-made manu­fac­tu­ring solu­ti­ons for our cus­to­mers in auto­mo­tive, aero­space, health­care and other manu­fac­tu­ring indus­tries. We are an estab­lis­hed key sup­plier in the glo­bal auto­mo­tive mar­ket. Every day we face the modern chal­len­ges regar­ding fle­xi­bi­lity, pro­duc­ti­vity and incre­a­sing variety and thus cover the gro­wing demand for com­plex indus­trial solu­ti­ons with a focus on machine inte­gra­tion and pro­cess auto­ma­tion. As a deve­lo­p­ment and opti­miz­a­tion part­ner, we sup­port our cus­to­mers in their stra­te­gic chal­len­ges by com­bi­ning our key tech­no­lo­gies, thus taking mar­ket- and cus­to­mer-spe­ci­fic sys­tems to a new level.
