The Advantages Of Fiber Laser Cutting Services

Posted by , on Jul, 2019

There are several different technologies and options when it comes to precision cutting metal and polymers. One of the most effective options is the choice of fiber laser cutting services that utilize the latest in this precision cutting technology. How it Works All fiber laser cutting services use an optical fiber that has been treated with a variety of different rare elements. The most commonly used elements, including erbium, thulium, neodymium, and several others. The choice of the different rare elements provides various cutting benefits based on the particular workpiece composition. The rare elements have the capacity to boost the energy levels of the laser and provide the energy needed for maximum cutting ability. The Benefits The use of a fiber rather than a crystal or gas as in other types of laser cutting has several specific benefits. A significant consideration is the stability of the fiber laser cutting system, which means that it can be moved or bumped without knocking the optics out of alignment and requiring a reconfiguration before further cutting can be completed. With the use of fiber laser cutting services, the beam is inside the fiber, so it is resistant to shock and movement. Additionally, there is no need for the same types of optic configuration, so this makes the equipment easier to set up and use on an ongoing basis. When the cutting beam of the laser is contained within the fiber, it is very controlled and high quality. The beam can also be maintained in a very compact and tight focus, which provides higher levels of precision cutting to even the most exacting tolerances. Finally, the choice of the fiber laser also means that very high power of laser systems can be used. Even a very small system is able to cut through an inch or more of steel at maximum speed and capacity, speeding up production without any sacrifice of precision cutting and quality.

The Advantages Of Robotic Welding Metal Fabrication...

Posted by , on Nov, 2018

One of the benefits of choosing to outsource metal fabrication for any OEM is the ability to know the price per unit delivered. The OEM knows when selecting the company for welding metal fabrication exactly what they will pay. There is no reason to worry about having to replace equipment, having to hire welders or even having to add more shifts to keep production on schedule. Lowers Cost and Boost Production Specialized companies offering welding metal fabrication also look for ways to decrease the cost of their services to remain highly competitive in the market. One way that several of the top welding fabricators are achieving this goal is to move into the use of robotics. The increased technology, precision and “lights out” performance and production makes robotic welding a very cost-effective decision. The welding fabricator can capitalize on defect-free delivery, rapid completion of large volume or ongoing orders as well as short turnaround time, all that are benefits to the OEM as well. Benefits to Consider In addition, there are several other ways that the addition of robotics to welding services is a benefit for the OEM. These include:  * Complexity of parts – the more complex the part, the greater the risk of human error or slight variations in parts during the welding process. By using robotics, which are computer controlled, these minor variations and human mistakes are eliminated from the fabrication process.  * Faster welding – robotic arms work on a continual basis. They do not get fatigued, need breaks or have downtime during shift changes. Saving even a few seconds per weld on a part can add up to significantly faster production, which only increases with larger volume orders.  * Quality control – every welder has a different level of proficiency and a greater focus on quality. With the use of robotic welding metal fabrication, there is no deviation or differences, leading to more precision welds and better overall quality parts. 3 people like this post. Like...
