The differences between laser cutting and plasma cutting are important when selecting the best solution for your application. Although one approach is not necessarily superior to the other, each offers certain capabilities and benefits that make one more suitable to an application. What Is Laser Cutting? Laser cutting has long been regarded as a safe, […]
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. The demands for material testing and quality assurance in aerospace are matched by only a handful of other industries. The safety of human passengers, crew, and cargo must be of the highest […]
The aerospace industry has been using additive manufacturing (AM) for many applications. From aircraft and helicopter parts to engines and turbines, 3D technologies save time and money to create stronger, more efficient components. AM has improved part performance, reduced weight, and has helped to remove design and production constraints. Additive Manufacturing vs. Conventional Manufacturing Additive […]
With the use of carbon fiber composite materials for aircraft, space and defense applications, robotic non-destructive inspection processes allow for the inspection of structural components at faster inspection speeds, delivering higher inspection productivity.
