Solid-State Versus Gas Lasers – Modern Laser Production Technology for Powertrain Components

Even a few years back major manufacturers utilized standard CO2 lasers in factories for welding applications. Massive systems installed in separate rooms away from the actual production process supplied the energy for what, at the time, was relatively new laser welding technology. Developments since then have continued and modern systems increasingly use solid-state lasers, which deliver a range...

Aviation team at EMAG ECM develops customized Aero solutions

The key components for aircraft turbines are made of high-tensile, heat-resistant materials. For example, the blade integrated discs – high-pressure compressors inside the turbine – are made of nickel-based alloys that put a lot of strain on milling tools. The components aren’t the only thing feeling the heat, the competitive pressure the aircraft manufacturers are under is rising, with their...
