PRIMA North America recently announced receipt of six LASERDYNE SYSTEM orders from a collection of customers worldwide. These orders, for the company’s latest multi-axis laser system technology, are from U.S. based customers with international operations and from an Asian customer involved in production of parts for new aircraft engines and in repair of turbine engine components.
The current LASERDYNE order mix for six systems includes: an East Coast engine manufacturer, a present customer, who ordered two LASERDYNE SYSTEM 450’s equipped with CL50k lasers; a West Coast-based tier one supplier who ordered one LASERDYNE SYSTEM 795 equipped with CL50k laser and an additional LASERDYNE SYSTEM 795 equipped with a fiber laser; a China-based aerospace industry customer who ordered one LASERDYNE SYSTEM 795 also equipped with the CL50k laser. All of these systems will be used for new engine component manufacturing.
The sixth order is from a turbine engine component refurbishing operation that provides engine maintenance support to many of the leading land based turbine users worldwide. Turbine engines require ongoing maintenance that includes refurbishing the thousands of cooling holes designed into every engine. The fastest, most cost-effective method for refurbishing these holes is with LASERDYNE’s proprietary, high-speed laser drilling laser systems.
LASERDYNE’s CL50k laser also allows for high speed hole drilling on the fly, which complements the many exclusive LASERDYNE system features including the patented Optical Focus Control (OFC), Breakthrough Detection (BTD), and CylPerf programming at normal, minor, shallow and compound angles. Putting this combination of software and hardware to use has helped major turbine engine manufacturers maintain ± 2% airflow on new generation of components where ± 10% had been the norm.
