Laserdyne Announces Improved Process Parameters for Welding Nickel-Based Aerospace Alloys to Meet Stringent Aerospace Airframe and Aero-Engine Requirements

Champlin, Minnesota –Â- High quality butt and lap joint welds are possible and practical in a number of common nickel-based aerospace alloys, as demonstrated by Prima Power Laserdyne application engineers. These applications meet the exacting requirements of aerospace, both for airframe as well as for aero-engine applications. Examples show the desirable crown (convexity) of the weld. Each...

Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Welding Nozzle protects weld zone and laser beam delivery optics.

Enhancing laser welding abilities of 3- to 7-axis 795, 430 BD, and 430 Vera laser processing systems, SmartShield™ lens and nozzle assemblies protect against excessive oxidation in weld area. High-velocity gas barrier prevents metal sparks from weld zone contaminating protective lens cover slide, and cross-jet does not contaminate or otherwise interfere with welding shield gas. Focusing...
