With the CoaxPrinter, Precitec brings a solution for laser cladding to market, which permits a multidirectional processing of the additive material wire for the first time
The potential benefits of using optical coherence tomography in remote laser welding for automotive construction are being explored by a consortium of academic and industrial entities

Richard Petersen has taken over as manager of Precitec's Sales and the Marketing Department
Precitec has introduced its newest groundbreaking technology packages, EdgeTec and PierceTec. These packages contain much more than simply hardware and a focus on high-quality laser cutting processes
With the new 'All-In-Light' package, Precitec offers a solution for the complete optical chain – from the laser and the laser light fibre to the cutting head
At the Lasys show, Precitec presented the YW52 welding head with controlled weld position and weld seam width.
The integrated ScanTracker uses the welding optics to coaxially measure the joint in lateral and axial direction only a few millimetres in front of the TCP. The position acquired is immediately transferred to the controllable deflection mirror and a preselected scan amplitude and frequency is then overlaid.
Matthew Dale explores some of the latest technology for manipulating and measuring the beam, including a multi-spot optical module for laser brazing and a contactless beam analysis device
Moving to very high power lasers for welding metals, like aluminium in car production, has some big benefits, as Greg Blackman finds out
