Prima Power Laserdyne has introduced SmartTechniques technology for laser welding. This new technology increases the productivity, quality and capability in laser welding as well as in laser cutting and drilling. Both the CW (continuous wave) and QCW (quasi-continuous wave) sources provide a combination of wavelength, beam quality, and power to make existing processes better and/or faster. Another feature of these solid-state laser sources is the speed and precision with which laser parameters can be controlled. To capitalise on these developments, Prima Power Laserdyne has applied its applications and design engineering resources to develop new capability for controlling the fiber laser welding process and for increasing the quality of laser welds.
