Why Laser-Based Tools Are Used For Production Purposes
Many laser applications have been developed since the invention of the laser in 1958. The ability to reach extremely high powers and to be focused to very small spots make myriad special applications possible, including many in the following fields.
- Military: Fabrication of weapons and direct use as weapons
- Medical: Various surgical procedures, dental prophylaxis
- Industrial: Welding and cutting, metals, plastics, ceramics
- Commercial: Measuring, ranging, code scanners, entertainment
- Scientific: spectroscopy, interferometry, photochemistry, microscopy
Laser systems in the 50-300W range are used primarily for soldering metals and welding plastics.
Welding and cutting of thick (0.25” and up) materials may require some tens of kilowatts and are in use in a wide variety of industries.
Mundt & Associates assist the customer in selecting the optimum laser for the application, having expertise with building equipment to use the following types of lasers.
- Fiber laser
- YAG laser
- CO2 laser
- Ultra-Short Pulsed Laser
Lasers are ideal in the production environment because they are generally fast, clean, reliable, energy-efficient and require little or no maintenance.
