What Are the Benefits of Adding IoT to Laser Cutting?

While laser cutting has many advantages, it can also be challenging to implement. High initial costs, safety concerns and the need for specialized training can stop manufacturers without the necessary funds and experience from capitalizing on its potential.

Cyan Tec and FANUC bring MTC's vision of large-scale robotic laser cutting cell to life

A suite of automation solutions from FANUC has proved integral to the delivery of an industrial-scale laser cutting cell commissioned by the UK's Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). Constructed by system integrator

Waterjet, Oxycut, Plasma or Laser, Which Cutting Technology Should I Use?

There is significant competition in the market between different cutting technologies, whether they are intended for sheet metal, tubes or profiles. There are those that use methods of mechanical cutting by abrasion and others that prefer thermal methods.

Why Laser Technology Is a Good Automation Tool for Traceability

Automating the traceability process is essential for manufacturers who want to avoid production bottlenecks, reduce production costs, and improve the marking quality to meet OEM traceability requirements.

What is Zero-Width Laser Cutting Technology?

The process splits materials at the molecular level under a non-contact process with tremendous speed resulting in no material loss, chips, lateral cracks, protrusions, hooks, and flares, or any other forms of contaminants.

All you need to know about diode lasers and laser diodes

While a laser diode generates photons (light) it create a lot of heat as well, so that heat has to be distributed and that is why there are not so many powerful laser diodes on the market.

15W Laser Engraver Review

There is a large number of different cheap laser engravers out there that are a great way to get into laser engraving on a budget.

How to convert a 3D Printer to a Laser Cutter

You can not only use your 3d printer for printing, but it is also an XYZ motion platform. By attaching a laser to the extruder, for example, you can easily convert your 3d printer to a laser engraver or even cutter.

Diode Laser on your 3D Printer, Perfect Tool for Makers?

3D printers are amazing for makers everywhere, as they enable easy, cheap, and fast progress on projects. They can't do everything though, especially if you want a different material from plastic, you're for the most part out of luck.

The Benefits of Laser Cutting to the Design for Manufacturing Process

In terms of design for manufacturing, laser-cutting technology can have a beneficial effect on any product. Cost and quality are two major influences on the marketability of any product, and laser cutting allows for high-quality components at a lower cost overall, therefore making it possible to offer a more affordable, better quality product.

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
