Prima Power Laserdyne announced that Fluiten Italia S.p.A. of Milan Italy has taken delivery of a LASERDYNE 430 four-axis fiber laser system. The LASERDYNE 430 will be used to precision weld high-pressure and temperature resistant components used in the manufacture of Fluiten seals.
Laserdyne 430 four-axis fiber laser system delivered recently to Fluiten Italia S.p.A. The operator is shown preparing the system for a new project. The company is using its new Laserdyne 430 system for a broad range of applications in the manufacture of seals used in nuclear reactor columns, naval vessels and petro chemical refineries.
Fluiten will be utilizing the full array of LASERDYNE hardware and software features integrated with the latest high power fiber laser. Highly efficient fiber lasers provide both operational advantages as well as key technical features associated with the small beam diameter and deep penetration welding. An area of interest for both companies is that with Fluiten’s welding applications, there is an opportunity to combine the motion and process control capability associated with LASERDYNE beam quality and control of the fiber lasers to create welding processes that meet the most demanding requirements.
The LASERDYNE 430 is a four-axis system designed for precision cutting, welding and drilling 2 and 3 dimensional components. The system operates at speeds up to 800 inch/min in the X, Y, Z axis (0-20 m/min) with bi-directional accuracy of 0.0005 inch (12.7 micrometer). This accuracy is throughout the system’s 585 x 408 x 508 mm work envelope, making it ideal for laser processing a broad range of Fluiten components manufactured to UNI EN 12756 (ex DIN 24960) standards. These include laser processing helical spring seals, bi-directional seals, and seals with integral flanged and jacketed casings at the highest rates with precision quality.
The LASERDYNE 430 system has LASERDYNE’S most powerful system controller, the S94P. The LASERDYNE 430 includes the full complement of LASERDYNE hardware / software features where required, with features such as BreakThrough® Detection (BTD) and LASERDYNE’S patented Automatic Focus Control® (AFC). These features have been employed by system users to laser process complex electronic, medical, and turbine engine components in far shorter cycle times with superior quality than other laser systems.
