Ebtech Industries has increased its welding capacity by installing a GSI JK450HP Nd:YAG Pulsed Laser System supplied by Raymax Lasers. The system was purchased to fill a requirement for a hi-tech welding process that fits between the current electron beam welding process and general welding processes such as TIG and MIG. Based on the applications and targeted markets, the GSI JK450HP – a 450W Average Power Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser System was selected as the preferred system. Raymax Lasers provided the laser system including installation, commissioning and training while Robotic Automation provided the integration for the robot, robotic control systems and work cell enclosure. The laser system is capable of welding and cutting various materials including carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminium, titanium and many other metals. The reach of the robot allows components that can fit into a cubic metre to be cut or welded. In addition, a rotary chuck is included allowing circumferential welding and cutting of round jobs.
