Laser School: Part 8 – Implementation of an industrial laser station
In the eighth and final section of the laser school, we’ll look at how to implement a laser station in the engineering industry. We’ll go through the different implementation stages, explain the importance of calculations before asking for a quote, and look at the key things to consider when establishing a long-term, reliable, and profitable industrial laser process.
Laser School: Part 7 – Lasers – an environmentally friendly industrial processing method
There is a huge need for sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing and processing methods in the engineering industry. Lasers offer many benefits from an environmental perspective compared with other processing methods.
Laser School: Part 6 – Requirements for staff and premises in order to use lasers in the engineering industry
The sixth part of laser school looks at the knowledge and conditions required in order to use different laser methods in the engineering industry. In the article and film, we discuss the knowledge that the company’s staff need to have, where they can acquire this knowledge, and the requirements of the premises where laser processing takes place.
Laser School: Part 5 – Laser stations increase the safety of industrial laser processing
A reliable laser process requires a safe and complete laser station. No two laser stations are the same and they often differ in terms of their degree of automation in production and the laser methods used.
Laser School: Part 4 – The differences between processing using lasers and processing without lasers in the manufacturing industry
What are the differences between welding using a laser and welding using TIG or MIG/MAG? How do you know when you should use laser hardening and when to use induction hardening?
Laser School: Part 3 – The benefits of different laser methods
These include 3D printing, welding, hardening, soldering, and cutting. In all of these cases, lasers ensure a smooth and efficient process with quick and accurate results that require minimal post-processing. In this article and film, we’ll explain more about the benefits of the most common laser methods in the manufacturing industry.
Laser School: Part 2 – The differences between different laser beams
In this article and video, we’ll take a closer look at the world of laser technology by explaining the difference between different laser beams, how lasers have helped to develop things like 3D printing, and why laser welding is quicker than many other welding solutions.
Laser School: Part 1 – The most common laser types in industry
What is a laser? How does it work? The use of lasers in manufacturing has increased steadily over the last 30 years and is expected to increase further in the future. Modern lasers have become incredibly powerful, while the price per kilowatt has gone down, which paves the way for new applications.
