Once seen as a machine that can do anything but nothing to completion, there are now countless applications where the versatile punch-laser combination machine easily outperforms a laser cutting machine when a second application is included.
Laser etching is a useful tool, but its limits as a light surface effect are apparent when a part number needs to be visible through paint or a powder coat. In these cases, deep etching can provide a simple solution – the trick is finding the right combination of hertz, laser wattage, focal diameter, and gas for your specific material.
How to prepare your shop for a smooth installation that gets your new machinery up and running efficiently and as quickly as possible so it can begin generating money for your company.
Quality software is the first step to precision tube component manufacturing. Knowing what to look for based on your programming needs will help determine the best solution for your shop.
This feature is important in cutting medical devices, electronics and fine mechanics components from thin materials with features that are too small to allow for piercing the drop-out scrap portion of the material.
Their new 85,000 sq ft manufacturing facility is equipped with 11 application-specific labs that support each of their product lines, processing nearly 100 samples per month.
In response to continued growth, this new 75,000 sq ft facility provides greater access for customers to explore more products, services and technologies.
This full service fabrication, machining and welding company invested in seven-figure state-of-the-art technology to become more productive and efficient.
Fiber Shield Windows from Mate Precision Tooling provide maximum protection and increase the lifetime of precision lenses in laser systems by shielding valuable optic components in laser beam delivery systems from debris, fumes and other pollutants during the laser process.
Ideal for hole-drillers and shops that micro-machine metals, ceramics and composite materials with high precision in aerospace, industrial gas turbines, defense, medical, automotive, hard material tool making and general metal micro-machining, the Synova MCS 500 5-axis water-guided laser cutting system from Single Source Technologies greatly improves production yields by cutting and drilling perfectly parallel and clean kerfs or holes with virtually no heat impact.
The built-in intelligence of next generation TruDisk disk lasers from TRUMPF collects and monitors condition data and process parameters, and boosts energy efficiency through a new pulse function that ramps the current of the pump diodes down to zero amps, even during very short laser-off times between two processing steps.
