EBTEC Corporation Acquires Three LASERDYNE Laser Machining Systems

Three LASERDYNE Laser Machining Systems acquired by EBTEC Corporation - a 795XL (left) and two 430 BeamDirector (right) systems.

EBTEC Corporation, a division of EDAC Technologies LLC, has acquired three LASERDYNE Fiber Laser Machining Systems. Once installed at EBTEC's new expanded 83,500 sq. ft. facility in East Windsor, CT, this new laser technology expands the company's four existing fiber laser system output to meet the growing needs of its aerospace and commercial customers who require complex and high-precision laser drilling, laser cutting and laser welding in fabricated and machined metallic components and assemblies.

"To meet these challenges, there are a number of unique capabilities within the three fiber laser systems that EBTEC has acquired," reported Mark Barry, Vice President of Sales for LASERDYNE. "For example, the LASERDYNE 795XL BeamDirector system with dual rotary tables and 6-axis processing capability is outfitted with a 20 kW QCW fiber laser. It adds large part capacity for complex laser hole drilling at angles as shallow as 10° to the surface in uncoated and thermal barrier coated heat resistant materials. This system is also a versatile cutter and welder that fits into the diverse portfolio of parts that EBTEC is asked to produce or provide service on, with very short notice and lead-time."

In addition, EBTEC has acquired two LASERDYNE 430 BeamDirector systems. These are smaller footprint systems capable of drilling cylindrical and shaped holes, bevel cutting and welding a wide range of materials similar to the LASERDYNE 795XL system including high temperature nickel alloys, aluminum, copper, stainless steel and titanium. All three systems operate at speeds up to 800 IPM in the X-, Y- and Z-axes (0-20 m/min) with bi-directional accuracy of 0.0005" (12.7 µm) and are capable of processing both thick and thin materials.

Speaking for EBTEC, Mark C. Hauser, General Manager, stated, "The addition of these machines allows us to align with and enhance many of our customer's technologies. We are positioning ourselves for growth by recognizing and creating solutions to our customer's needs. The new systems are faster and more dynamic than our legacy technology, giving us the ability to quickly add new and very precise part features to fabricated products."

Hauser also stated that these new systems would augment EBTEC's existing fiber laser processing capabilities with higher-speed, high-precision laser drilling, laser cutting and laser welding. "These acquisitions along with the expanded facility are a result of EDAC's never ending effort to procure the best manufacturing solutions for our customers. LASERDYNE systems are a fantastic addition to our existing 5-axis laser technology giving us a competitive advantage across a variety of different products. We look forward to introducing this new capability to our current and future customers," added Hauser.
