Industrial Laser Trends
If you’ve ever stripped the phosphate coating off a part, or managed a phosphate conversion coating process, chances are you’ve seen your fair share of chemicals. If you want to get rid of chemicals during phosphate coating removal, laser cleaning may be the solution you’re looking for.
Fiber lasers are everywhere in the modern world. Due to the different wavelengths they can generate, they are widely used in industrial environments to perform cutting, marking, welding, cleaning, texturing, drilling and a lot more.
To make sure laser technology is perfectly safe in manufacturing environments, it must be implemented properly to prevent health risks. One of the important laser safety considerations is the extraction and the filtration of fumes.
Cleaning up aluminum before welding is essential to make sure that the end product is structurally strong. If you’ve done your research on how to best do it, you probably found the same information everywhere.
Laser ablation occurs when a laser beam removes material from a localized area. Used in various industrial applications, this process can create permanent marks (laser marking), remove contaminants and coatings from surfaces (laser cleaning), modify a part’s roughness (laser texturing), cut through a surface (laser cutting) and much more.
Indian manufacturers now have a privileged access to industrial laser marking, laser cleaning and laser texturing to treat surfaces and implement industrial traceability. Laserax and Blue Star have indeed partnered up in August 2020 to offer the best service possible to the Indian industrial market.
Laser cleaning uses a physical reaction called laser ablation to clean metal surfaces. It can remove contaminants, impurities, coatings and debris (e.g., rust, paint, oxide, dust). Because it is efficient and eco-friendly, it is used in an increasing number of applications.
Removing oxide from aluminum usually comes as a necessary evil to ensure that high-quality parts are manufactured. If you’ve manually cleaned oxides before, you’ve probably spent a lot on manual labor and had a hard time ensuring consistent results.
