  • welding metal with lasers

    Welding Metal

    One of the main advantages of laser welding metal is that lasers require less heat input compared with other welding processes. Lasers also produce only a small heat affected zone (HAZ) on the welded material and the distortion produced by the welding is low. These attributes, combined with very high speeds, make laser welding an obvious choice for many manufacturing businesses...

  • heat treating metal with lasers

    Hardening Metal

    Heat treatment, unusually, isn't something that works for all metals, just iron and steel. From ancient times people have quench tempered ferous metals. With lasers this messy inacurate practice can be clean accurate and more effective. Mobile heat treatment systems such as the AL-Rock make it even more useful e.g. automotive moulds can be re-hardened in situ saving multiple days of production down time...
