Laser welding is used in many different industries, typically for the precision it affords. Few industries require the precision of the aerospace industry, for example. Virtually no tolerance variation is acceptable. Cracks, distortions, and material damage can quickly result in aircraft failure. The high-strength, lightweight alloys used today make welding difficult. Laser welding offers solutions […]
Aerospace manufacturers use laser ablation to remove layers from solid metals and certain compounds to make those materials more suitable for industrial processes. Laser ablation offers absolute precision to carry out this task. How Laser Ablation Works A laser beam is focused on the metal’s surface. This breaks off existing chemical bonds that bind the […]
Ultrasonic, robotic non-destructive inspection has proved to be an effective way for the aerospace industry to ensure that large aircraft parts are safe.
