MRC500 laser robotic cell
The laser MRC500 is the larger robotic cell that supports point to point laser soldering from above. The standardized platform is based on a flexible and modular concept that can be adapted to a range of processes from fully-automated in-line to stand-alone semi-automated processes.
The frame of the laser MRC500 is designed to ensure the safety of the operator during the laser soldering process. Furthermore, it also provides maximum accessibility to the working area. The laser robotic cell is only equipped with mta MLH45 laser head.
The main features of our laser MRC500 include:
- Welded frame construction
- 3-axis Cartesian robot
- 500x500mm working area
- Industrial PC controller with Embedded Windows® operating system
- Intuitive menu-driven mta MotionEditor software
4 reasons to choose the mta MRC500 laser soldering cell
- The laser MRC500 is both purposes-built and standardized. The advantage of being purpose-built is that there was no need to compromise functionality around pre-defined limitations. The advantage of standardizing the design is that it does not come with the heavy cost associated with one-off custom machines.
- The X, Y, and Z axis use ball-screw actuators for precise actuation with a repeatability of 20 microns to assure the process is accurate and delivers consistent quality.
- Properly designed heads are fairly heavy, so large DC stepper motors are used that provide the strength needed to actuate the head quickly.
- The laser MRC500 can be combined with a solder paste jet dispenser.

MLH45 laser head
mta primarily uses the MLH45 laser head for soldering robots on joints that are too small for the iron – smaller than 1mm. For the smallest applications, we combine the laser heat source with optical realignment and solder paste jet dispenser.
Solder paste dispensing heads
The soldering market is heading towards smaller and smaller applications. Therefore, the size of the solder wire and the influence of its contact with the components become a limit for the achievable process accuracy.
Solder wire feeder
The location of the mta wire feeder is unique. Placing it directly on the solder head improves accuracy, reliability, and overall performance. We are distinctive in this regard because our purpose-built robot is able to support the additional weight at the end of the robot.
TR300 soldering table-top robot
The TR300 is mta’s table-top soldering robot platform. This robot is purpose-built and standardized for semi-automated applications that require point-to-point soldering.
