Industrial Laser Trends
The most common methods for e-coating removal include burn-off ovens, sandblasting, and chemical stripping. A more modern technology is laser cleaning. It is adopted by manufacturers who need speed and precision, as well as those who want to get rid of consumables.
Laser dust removal is the process of removing dust from a surface using laser ablation. Any types of dusts produced in work environments can be removed, such as metallic, plastic and organic dust. As the laser beam irradiates the surface, burnt off dust is vaporized and extracted using a dust extraction nozzle
Deep laser engraving is a process that uses a highly focused beam of light to engrave 3D forms into metals. Pulsed fiber lasers are the best tools for deep engraving because they reach the high peak power needed to carve metal surfaces.
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.
