Abstract
A number of upcoming industrial applications prove that the laser offers great possibilities for parts cleaning and surface pretreatment. Thereby laser technology enables solutions to reduce production costs and to increase productivity and quality in the manufacturing process. Examples are the removal of oil, grease, phosphate layers or corrosion with the laser. This paper will focus on parts cleaning and surface pretreatment applications within the automotive industry. For a range of examples it will be shown that the laser not only offers advantages to carry out the described production step (such as cleaning or the creation of functional textures) but also offers great advantages for a following production step within the chain, such as a welding or gluing process. It will be demonstrated that several ns and ps laser sources and systems can be selected, depending on the application.
