In 1913, Henry Ford became the first car manufacturer to use conveyor belts in the production of the Ford Model-T. Today, conveyor systems are widely used in the automotive supply chain, and they‘re not going away anytime soon. Lithium-ion batteries, for example, are the most important parts of electric vehicles and are mostly moved from one step to another using conveyors. The technology supporting conveyor systems keeps evolving. In this article, we’re focusing on how laser systems are integrated into conveyors and used for all types of operations in the automotive industry. This includes everything from laser marking (to implement traceability) to laser cleaning (to prepare surfaces for subsequent manufacturing steps).
