GF Machining Solutions (Lincolnshire, IL) offers two high-performance laser machining solutions that provide today’s shops with a competitive advantage when machining small, intricate parts. Specifically:
- The LASER P 400 U machine includes a patented, dual laser head that incorporates both a fiber nanosecond laser and a femtosecond pulsed laser. This allows texturing, marking and engraving of a surface with a single setup, as well as extends the range of materials that can be processed. It is ideal for small components such as watches and jewelry as well as for cutting tools, small inserts and micro-machined workpieces.
- The microlution ML-5 ultrafast laser micro-machining platform is the first industrial-grade femtosecond laser platform capable of machining minute features with micron-level accuracy and repeatability in 24/7 manufacturing environments. ML-5’s ultrafast lasers machine without creating a Heat Affected Zone (HAZ), which makes them capable of achieving tolerances that would otherwise be impossible. The absence of thermal damage also eliminates post-processing in many applications to further reduce overall part cycle times.
