Double-Duty Lasers

As laser manufacturing systems for sheet and tube grow more sophisticated—powerful, automated and scalable—navigating the wealth of choices might feel daunting.

High-Power Fiber Laser Welding With Filler Material

Fiber laser welding continues to grow as it improves in weld quality, reliability and performance. Many fiber laser welding applications are autogenous, where the weld is formed entirely by melting parts of the base metal and no additional filler wire or powder is used

The Ins and Outs of Laser Marking

Part identification is a necessary step in any manufacturing operation. This might be as simple as a label on the shipping box, but more often shops are required to mark each component, especially those used in automotive, aerospace, or medical applications.

Laser, Fabrication and Automation Power Ahead

Laser 3D printing and marking systems are among the heavy-duty cutting and welding systems that had been scheduled for the IMTS Fabricating and Laser Pavilion—testament to the growing impact of what once might have been viewed as ancillary processes.

Kyocera Expands JCT “Jet Coolant-Through” Toolholder Series

Kyocera Precision Tools, Hendersonville, N.C., has expanded its jet coolant-through toolholder series, which provides multiple high-pressure coolant streams at precise locations providing excellent chip control and wear prevention, according to the company.

Maximizing MRR with Tools for High-Speed Milling

Advanced cutting tools can maximize metal removal rates (MRR) when machining even the most difficult-to-machine materials. Powered by the latest CAM programs, these machining strategies are known variously as high-speed, high-efficiency, optimized roughing and also by proprietary brand names like Mastercam’s Dynamic Milling.
