Amada Miyachi America Inc., a manufacturer of resistance-welding, laser-welding, marking, cutting, and micro-machining equipment and systems, has updated its LMWS pulsed fiber laser-welding system, a configurable, compact unit designed for lean manufacturing. The system features a versatile high-power, high-speed laser, available in 20 to 70-W models, for welding of metals and plastics. The LMWS also proves ideal for welding dissimilar metals, including copper to aluminum, aluminum to mild or stainless steels, and copper to stainless steel. By simply changing the settings, the laser also can mark welded parts.

LMWS systems are available with a variety of integration options to match process needs. The unit comes standard with an X-Y galvanometric scanner; X-Y-Z and rotary stages or through-the-lens and off-axis camera options also are available. Standard equipment includes integrated stage controllers for as many as four axes of motion, for use in such applications as step-and-repeat welding, focal-plane height adjust and rotary welding.
