Industrial Laser Trends
What is a Hairpin Motor - Benefits & Assembly Process
The advantages brought by hairpin motors are making electric vehicles more competitive not only with previous generations of EVs, but also with combustion engines. They are more efficient, have a higher power density and thermal performance, and are simpler to manufacture.
Laser Spot Welding & Laser Seam Welding in 2023
Laser spot welding is a welding process that uses the power of a laser beam to join two metal surfaces at a single spot. Laser seam welding is when surfaces are welded over a long, continuous surface.
Wire Bonding Machines: Types, Limitations, & Laser Alternative
Wire bonding machines are widely used in the aerospace, semiconductor, solar cells, microelectronics, and EV battery industries. In this article, we’ll go over the types of wire bonders, discuss their limitations, and present how laser welding is used to overcome these challenges in the automotive industry.
Laser Structuring: Applications & Benefits for Metal Surfaces
In metal manufacturing, laser structuring is increasingly used to prepare surfaces for adhesive bonding and thermal spray coating, creating a surface texture that improves adhesion while removing contaminants that could interfere with it.
Fiber Laser Cleaners - The Machines Taking Over Metal Cleaning
Fiber laser cleaners are becoming increasingly popular to clean metal surfaces due to their many advantages over traditional cleaning methods like sandblasting and chemical cleaning.
Surface Processing: Which Process is Best for My Application?
A wide range of surface processes are used in manufacturing to improve part surfaces. They can add material layers to a surface, remove undesired materials from a surface, reshape a surface, or modify the properties of a surface. In this article, we’ll go over different types of surface processes and technologies to learn which one is good for what application.
Disadvantages of Dry Ice Blasting: Is It Worth It?
While dry ice blasting is praised for its advantages, it also comes with several disadvantages. In this article, we’ll go over the different aspects of dry ice blasting to better understand when it’s worth it, and which alternatives to consider.
How to Choose a Laser Ablation Machine
Laser ablation machines are increasingly used in the manufacturing and automotive industries. They are a popular option to meet short cycle times, automate processes, reduce operating costs, and add precision to ensure high-quality results.
High-Power Laser Systems for Industrial Applications
In the manufacturing industry, engineers are constantly developing solutions made possible by high-power lasers. They are mainly used to mark, clean, texture, weld, and cut materials faster and meet short cycle times in production lines.
