Latest Trends in Laser, Plasma & Waterjet Machining - IMTMA/T004

Programme Background

Laser, Plasma & Water Jet processes are fast gaining popularity as “Net Shape” solutions. These processes can compete both technically and economically with conventional and non-conventional machining processes and can meet the challenges of achieving high quality, reliability and price. Unlike conventional gas cutting, these innovative processes in many cases do not need any finishing operation resulting in short lead times and reduced in-process inventory. Plasma, Laser & Water Jet, often have different application areas complementing each other. By adding a laser, plasma or water jet machine it may be possible to reduce cost and lead times for one-off and small production runs.

In recent years, Laser-based applications have widened their scope including Deep penetration welding, Surface modification (cladding, hardening, alloying and cleaning), Laser milling and specialized laser cutting, including thick section cutting and 3D profile cutting using multi- axis machines.
