Oct. 14, 2017 – Amada Miyachi America has updated the LMWS pulsed fiber laser welding system, describing it as a highly configurable unit for lean manufacturing.
The system boasts a high-speed laser, available in 20-70 W powers for welding metals and plastics. The LMWS is suitable for welding dissimilar metals, including copper to aluminum, aluminum to stainless and steel, and copper to stainless steel. By changing the settings, users can also use the laser to mark welded parts. When paired with the LMF20-SM pulsed fiber laser welder, the system offers a 20 W precision welding system for the smallest feature size, says the company, adding that when paired with the LMF70-HP 70W pulsed fiber laser, the LMWS boasts an advanced processing system for welding thin metals up to 0.010 inches. Weld types include single point object arrays, basic shapes (rectangle, circle, and spiral), wobble function and vector graphics, including CAD, line-drawings, and logos.
