Fiber Laser Welding Machine Uses Diode Pumps for More Power

IMTS 2018: ID1 fiber laser welding system from Alliance Laser Sales has more pure power per application driven by the diodes (and not dependent on any crystal or mirror life as with YAG lasers) and requires almost no maintenance.

The ID1 fiber laser welding system from Alliance Laser Sales uses Fiber Solid State (FSS) laser technology, which generates laser power through a series of diode pumps instead of crystals and mirrors. This removes many of the intricate parts found in typical YAG lasers and results in virtually zero maintenance for the user, according to the company. The machine’s design also offers high beam quality, air cooling for high ambient air temperatures, low power consumption, long diode life (ranging to 100,000 hours), fewer necessary optics, and easy integration and service. 

The swivel design provides unlimited head position configurations for greater job flexibility, 4.5-ft. travel and full 360-degree rotation. Alliance says that every part of this system is easily adjustable, giving the operator versatility and flexibility to meet most laser repair demands. It is designed to be manually adjusted, which eliminates the possibility for mechanical failure and offers the ability to focus on specific areas, ultimately reducing wear. Material applications include most tool steels, such as tool steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, titanium, aluminum, nickel, copper and beryllium.

Cutting Tools Resist Heat, Hold Size

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Crystallume had its Demon line of cutting tools, which is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials.
