Ebtec Corp. adds three fiber laser systems
Ebtec Corp., a division
of Edac Technologies
LLC, has acquired three
LASERDYNE® fiber laser machining systems
for installation at its newly expanded 83,500-sq.-;. facility in
East Windsor, Conn. The machines will join the company’s
four existing fiber laser systems to provide complex and high-precision laser drilling, laser cutting, and laser welding in fabricated and machined metallic components and assemblies.
One of the new machines, a LASERDYNE 795XL BeamDirec-tor with dual rotary tables and 6-axis processing capability,
is outfitted with a 20-k W QCW fiber laser. It adds large part
capacity for complex laser hole drilling at angles as shallow
as 10 degrees to the surface in uncoated and thermal barrier-coated, heat-resistant materials.
The other two new machines are LASERDYNE 430 Beam-Director systems. The smaller-footprint systems can drill
cylindrical and shaped holes and perform bevel cutting and
welding on a variety of materials, including high-temperature
nickel alloys, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and titanium.
