Brazilian laser institute orders $1.78m hybrid laser cell

Laser system manufacturer Preco has received a $1.78 million order for a high powered, multi-laser development and manufacturing cell from the Brazilian Senai Institute of Laser Innovation, Joinville-SC-Brazil. 

Preco will be providing Senai with a flexible, SL-8600 hybrid laser/MIG system, based on Cartesian machine tool motion configured for industrial, laser based, production or development. David Plourde, EVP of Preco said that the system is being built in Somerset, Wisconsin and includes two high powered lasers, one 10kW disk laser and one 6kW diode laser. The system will be capable of hybrid laser welding, additive manufacturing, surface and heat treatment and other high powered laser processing development. 

Preco is a laser system manufacturer offering a wide range of Cartesian, XY and Z rotary stations, remote single or multiple galvo laser material processing machine tools with robotic or roll fed automation.

Senai is a private non-profit technical training organisation.  It is chartered to raise industrial competitiveness by promoting innovation and offering technological solutions for the development of products and processes, specifically working with laser welding, additive manufacturing and surface hardening technology.
