Drawing on the expertise of Techgen Media, publisher of FAB Shop Magazine Direct and Welding Productivity, and through collaborations with industry experts, Shop Floor Lasers covers the dynamic world of industrial laser processing, which includes cutting, welding, brazing, 3-D printing and more. To help our readers become more productive and, in turn, more profitable, the team at Shop Floor Lasers strives to educate and inform our readers on the various ways lasers can transform their operations.
In the new issue of Shop Floor Lasers, which is now live, we tackle some “big” topics, such as the development of new methods to laser cut super-sized tubes. We also look into large-format fiber laser processing, which includes materials so large that a 130-ft. bed has been brought in as a solution.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, we cover how micromachining technology allows for high-precision manufacturing that is crucial to the medical industry and others that require parts with no burrs or dross and a dramatically reduced heat-affected zone.
Bilsing Automation announced the implementation of EHLA, a laser cladding process using high-speed laser metal deposition (LMD) that helps protect components from corrosion and wear. As compared to hard chrome plating, thermal spraying and traditional LMD, EHLA provides an economically feasible and environmentally friendly alternative for coating surfaces in less time. Bilsing has mounted the laser beam… Continued
