Press Release Summary:
Available in sizes from 0.180 x 0.080 to 0.250 x 0.500 in., with thicknesses from 0.030–0.1 in., Casting Braze Plugs are precision cut from same material as cast part to fill holes left behind, which allows access to ID where additional machining was required. Units are laser cut to customer specifications using nitrogen to prevent recast layer. For cooling, plugs feature precise laser-drilled holes as small as 0.010 in. dia with Â±0.0005 in. tolerances.
Original Press Release:
Casting Braze Plugs Laser Cut Including Precise Holes
Custom braze filler plugs that can be laser cut from the host cast material in precise sizes and include precision laser drilled holes for cooling are being introduced by Advanced Laser Technologies of Stoneham, Massachusetts.
Advanced Laser Technologies’ Casting Braze Plugs are precision cut from the same material as the cast part to fill holes left behind which allow access to the I.D. where additional machining was required. Laser cut to customer specifications using nitrogen to prevent a recast (oxide) layer, they can be produced in a wide range of sizes and include precise holes for cooling.
Featuring precise laser drilled holes as small as 0.010” dia. with ±0.0005” tolerances and exact repeatability, depending upon the material, thickness and configuration, Advanced Laser Technologies’ Casting Braze Plugs can range from 0.180”L x 0.080”W to 0.250”L x 0.500”W, with thicknesses from 0.030” to 0.1”, and tolerances to ±0.005”, depending upon configuration.
Advanced Laser Technologies’ Casting Braze Plugs are priced according to configuration and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request. The firm is General Electric approved for laser cutting/drilling & airflow.
