Industrial Laser Trends
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.
If you are relatively new to laser technology, you are probably wondering what’s the difference between laser engraving and laser etching. And more importantly, which one is right for you?
After 2 years of development, Laserax releases the LXQ Fiber Laser Marker series that redefines how easy and accessible laser system integration can be. The laser’s features reduce integration time, cost, and facilitate collaboration between system integrators and laser experts.
To move the marking operation near the casting machine, you probably need to change or upgrade your marking system. Why is that? Most marking systems aren’t made to operate in casting plants.
After opening its office in Bremen, Germany and attending GIFA 2019, Laserax continues to show a strong presence in Germany and Eastern Europe. From January 14–16, Laserax was at EUROGUSS 2020, the biggest trade fair for the die casting industry in Europe.
Some lasers are powerful enough to damage your skin, cause serious eye injuries, and set your workplace on fire. This is why governmental and international organizations have put in place strict standards separating laser systems into safety classes according to their ability to cause hazards.
Laser engraving is a process that vaporizes materials into fumes. The laser beam acts as a chisel, incising marks by removing layers from the surface of the material. The laser must hit localized areas with massive levels of energy to generate the high heat required for vaporization. In this article, you’ll find in-depth information on how laser engraving works
