Title: LASER REMOTE PROCESSING SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPERATING A LASER REMOTE PROCESSING SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a laser remote processing system, in particular a laser remote welding system having a laser cell (20) surrounded by a protective housing (22), in which a working robot (A) having a remote laser tool and a first processing station (B1) in the working region of the working robot (A) are arranged. In order to improve the efficiency of the system, a second processing station (32) in the working region of the working robot (A), and at least one handling robot (H1, H2) are furthermore arranged within the protective housing (22), it being possible to reposition workpieces between the first processing station (B1) or the second processing station (32) and a buffer region (P1) with said handling robot. The buffer region (P1) is set up to receive workpieces (W) and is integrated into the protective housing (22) as an automatably actuable workpiece lock (ZP1).
