Miyachi Unitek, a manufacturer of welding equipment and laser processing systems, announced product innovations for the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West exposition and conference, Feb.12-14, 2013. On display will be the new LF Series Fiber Laser, Mu Desktop Galvo Fiber Laser Welding System, and Sigma Laser tube cutting system.
The new LF series fiber lasers are for micro spot and seam welding applications as well as fine cutting, with power levels from 100-500W, and a selection of beam qualities to suit each application need. A high-definition large-screen pendant enables quick and easy programming.
The Mu Desktop Galvo Fiber Laser Welding System (shown) on display is the company’s newest welding system, and features the motion capabilities of a stage-based system in a highly compact footprint. Fiber and Nd:YAG-compatible, the new system has an average power of up to 500W, and high speed galvo motion. The Class 1 mini workstation is available in number of configurations, one with a vertical door that provides quick access for loading and unloading. Options include through-the-lens vision, extraction, and custom tooling. The Mu is also available as a Class 4 system, and may also be configured as a welding sub-system for machine integration.
The Sigma Laser tube cutting system on display offers high speed and high precision cutting of stainless and Nitinol materials. A new tooling innovation enables high quality, high yield cutting of tubing down to 0.01-in. diameter.
