The airbag as a safety-relevant component

Automation increases your process quality

The airbag is probably the component on the vehicle that stands for occupant safety like nothing else. It´s essential for overall safety if you think about live detonators being installed in a vehicle. When the airbag module does not function as desired, its protective effect is completely absent and it can lead to serious injuries to the occupants.

In the airbag, explosives are laser-welded in a steel casing. Irregularities in the laser welding process are clear indicators of defective welds. Safety-relevant structural components must be monitored and documented. The LWM-System is the optimal tool for this. All welding processes are monitored, evaluated, documented, and stored. Thus 100 % traceability and transparency of your laser welding processes is possible – even after many years.
