Champlin, Minnesota: Prima Power Laserdyne, a world leader in designing and manufacturing precision multi-axis laser machining systems, announced that it is expanding its North American business by hiring personnel for 20 newly created job positions and the introduction of products into new and existing markets.

Long a major supplier of multi-axis laser systems to the global aerospace industry, the company expanded its position in industries requiring laser cuttingand welding of fine mechanical and medical components and assemblies. One of its major new products, the Model 430, is designed for automated precision laser welding of fine mechanical and medical devices. This system brings new levels of accuracy, high productivity and quality demanded more than ever in today’s manufacturing. New hires will support this medical industry expansion.

The manufacturing challenges of new lightweight automobiles, more efficient jet aircraft engines, and other fine mechanical products such as couplings and sensors have also increased demand for other Laserdyne products, many of which have been developed specifically for these market applications. They are used increasingly for 2D and 3D laser cutting, drilling and welding because of their speed and accuracy. All of these products incorporate proprietary electronics, computer numerical controls and laser sources designed and manufactured either by Prima Power Laserdyne or within Prima Group companies.

During the past year, Prima Power Laserdyne has become the North American center for assembly, sales, installation, service and applications training for the PRIMA Rapido and Optimo 3D laser systems for North America. These large work envelope, automated laser systems are used to cut and weld automotive components and assemblies.

"All of these growth areas require more skilled personnel," reports company president Terry VanderWert. "The innovative and hard-working nature of today's American workers are making Laserdyne's success possible and with it rapid new job growth within our company. The skill level required for these positions is an indication of the technical nature of our business and the sophistication of our products.
