As another sign that the application of laser processing in the global turbine engine manufacturing business is expanding, Prima North America's Laserdyne Systems (Champlin, MN) announced the receipt of two orders, that exceed $2 million, for Laserdyne 795 multi-axis laser systems.
"The first order is from a Russian turbine engine manufacturer new to laser processing, and the second is from an American aerospace engine manufacturer who is adding to their existing Laserdyne equipment," reports Terry VanderWert, president of Prima North America. "Combined with several similar orders announced earlier in 2009, we have confidence supported by customer orders that the worldwide turbine engine business is not only alive and well but also growing.
The orders are for Laserdyne 795 systems equipped with BeamDirector and CL50k lasers to be used for a variety of laser drilling applications.
VanderWert says that component and OEM manufacturers are responding to the need for the latest multi-axis laser technology. Older technology used in earlier generations of Laserdyne Systems equipment no longer fulfills the demanding production and quality requirements of the newest engine designs and for refurbishing existing engines. He cites this as evidence that new and existing customers are recognizing the benefits of the company's long list of developments and have come to view the features of their systems as the standard for the industry.
Laserdyne Systems (www.prima-na.com) is the leading provider of multi-axis laser systems for aerospace manufacturing with more than 300 installations for aerospace manufacturing in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.
