ADDere’s laser hybrid wire welding system achieves single-pass welding for thick plate fabrication – on material up to 25 mm. But speed is far from compromised at 60 inches per minute.
The HighLight FL4000CSM-ARM fiber laser from Coherent achieves advanced, more stable welding results with high thermal conductivity metals. Its dual beam output creates high laser intensity, so material doesn’t heat up.
A new machine size in powder nozzle technology, DMG MORI’s Lasertec 3D hybrid is designed for the additive manufacture of complex prototypes and small series parts as well as component repair and coating. It enables additive manufacturing and CNC milling on one machine – for 3D components in finished part quality.
Amada Miyachi America’s compact MM-410A supports process development and production applications for resistance welding technologies including AC, DC inverter, AC inverter, transistor, and capacitive discharge. Data storage is available using an onboard flash drive.
Ideal for high-volume automotive welding, the high-power HighLight FL-ARM dual fiber output laser can sequentially power two separate workstations or processes.
G.H. Tool invested in an AL500 mobile laser welding system from Alpha Laser for making die repairs and engineering changes to mold cavity surfaces, as well as refurbishment of critical wear surfaces.
Complete Machining Services uses a LaserStar 8700-3 Series Universal Jig Welding Workstation to meet demands for plastic injection mold repair services.
The compact, lightweight MM-L300A Laser Weld Monitor from Amada Miyachi detects gaps between parts, missing parts, over-penetration, incorrect focus and cover gas absence, providing operators feedback on laser weld quality.
Moved into place beside pressing tools, large molds or machine components that must be welded, the ALFlak Max Laser Welding System from Alpha Laser uses a 9 ft long laser arm for significantly large movement radius and added flexibility.
For quick welding times and minimal heat input, a FANUC robot welds parts using a robot-mounted, high-speed Compact Remote Welding head controlled by a two-axis servo motor that manipulates the fine-focused beam into a weave shape pattern tailored to the joint and material.
Superior Joining Technologies uses an LDT welding system to create complex geometries that were once difficult to produce for aerospace and other critical applications.
They expand and upgrade their laser marking, laser micromachining and sub-system operations in Gilching, Germany.
Amid Challenges, Majority of Metalformers Predict Little Change in Economic Activity
U.S and Canadian incoming orders expected to remain steady, according to the latest barometer reading from the Precision Metalforming Association.
U.S. Manufacturing Grows in September –– PMI Dips 0.6% to 55.4
The Institute for Supply Management reports that among the six biggest industries, food, beverage & tobacco remains the best-performing sector, with fabricated metal and chemical products growing strongly.
