Lasers for Metals

Lasers for MetalsPreco has extensive experience in laser welding ranging from high power thick section welding to micro joining of foils and small wires. We also have experience in processes such as hybrid welding, induction-assisted laser welding, and cold wire feed welding.

Laser heat treating is a surface modification process designed to change the microstructure of metals through controlled heating and cooling. Laser heat treating can target localized areas without affecting the entire work piece. Another surface modification process is laser cladding which is ideally suited for creating an entirely new surface as well as repairing damaged or worn surfaces (remanufacturing).

Preco, a leading laser integrator, specializes in systems for cutting and drilling round, tubular, flat sheet and hydro-formed parts. Laser cutting is a noncontact process that delivers highly accurate narrow kerf width cuts with a small heat-affected zone. Let our Preco engineers work with you to match the appropriate state-of-the-art laser with a system that will meet all of your needs.

Metals Systems
SL800 Laser Metal SystemSL Series
Welding, Heat Treating, Cutting, Drilling
This versatile machine offers single and multiple head sheet metal cutting operations along with laser welding, heat treating, and cladding capabilities. It features a moving XY table and worksupport areas up to 60" x 120". Common applications include the welding of formed or stamped sheet metal, machined metal components, and power generation turbines.
  ST Series Laser Metals SystemST Series
Welding, Heat Treating, Cladding,
Cutting, Drilling

The Preco ST Series Laser Workstations perform multi-axis laser welding, drilling and cutting in a class I enclosure. These time and field proven machines are designed around fixed beam laser technology and Preco XY motion and control technology.
Robotic Cell Laser Metals SystemRobotic Cell
Welding, Heat Treating, Cladding,
Cutting, Drilling

The system is built with a singular construction and includes all electrical, pneumatic, and exhaust items conveniently located in the unit. The steel welded frame and enclosure has numerous windows for viewing, large access doors on each side, many options for part load and unload, and multiple fork lift access points built in for easy shipment and in-plant moves.
  SL5505 Metals Cutting & Drilling Laser SystemSL5505
Cutting, Drilling
The Preco SL5505 system is a three axis flying optic system designed for precessing flat sheet or coil-fed product. In the flat sheet configuration the product is cut on a sliding drawer worksupport allowing for easy load and unload.
Cladding Laser SystemCladding System
Preco manufactures systems for the deposition of powder metal or wire onto a base metal (part) to metallurgical bond the dissimilar materials. We offer both Cartesian platforms or robotic based systems. Laser cladding increases the life span for components by improving corrosion and wear properties.
  MedPro Laser Micro Processing Medical SystemMedPro
Micro Processing
Medical devices are becoming smaller and more complex. Lasers are both a necessity and a valuable asset in the fabrication of medical devices. The MedPro laser system provides high speed, tight tolerance laser processing for flat sheet or rotary applications.
RT1000 Metal Tube Cutter SystemRT1000
Micro Processing
The Preco RT1000 is designed for precision laser cutting small diameter tubes for medical devices such as surgical instruments, stents and other implantable devices. The combination of a granite base, precision servo drives, rigid work holding, fiber delivered laser sources and Preco's optimized fine cutting head offers unmatched precision and productivity.
