Preco offers laser systems that utilize the latest advances in laser manufacturing technology enabling customers to maximize their productivity and profitability.
Together, We Can Make a World of Difference
We offer our customers innovative, high-quality laser systems as well as processing solutions for welding, cutting, heat treating, cladding, and ablation. Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff prides itself at being on the cutting edge of the laser technology. We will recommend the best suited laser technology, the most economical material handling and time saving process for your application. All packaged in one of the most reliable and precise laser systems on the market.
Outsourcing of laser processing is an option for many of Preco’s customers. Our contract manufacturing services (CMS) provides you with consistent, cost effective welding, heat treating, cladding, ablation and specialty cutting, to make you competitive in your manufacturing processes.
With experience in hybrid welding, induction-assisted welding and cold wire feed welding, as well as knowledge of both destructive and non-destructive techniques, Preco engineers will work with you to provide a machine or process that will meet all of your needs.
Laser Heat Treating
Laser heat treating is a surface modification process designed to change the microstructure of metals through controlled heating. The advantage of utilizing a laser for this process is the ability to heat treat localized areas without affecting the entire work piece.
Combining Preco’s laser technical knowledge with a deposit layer of substrate (powder or wire), will dramatically increase the life of your component’s wear surface. This laser cladding process is ideally suited for creating an entirely new surface, as well as repairing damaged or worn surfaces (remanufacturing).
Laser cutting increases accuracy, creates narrow kerf widths and small heat-affected zones, while reducing time and labor costs by consolidating and simplifying fabrication. Preco also specializes in multi-axis systems and services for laser cutting of tubular and hydro-formed parts.
More Than Just Laser Processing
We offer exceptional metallurgical and mechanical testing capabilities to our customers. Preco’s metal evaluation services are staffed by highly experienced personnel and state-of-the-art equipment. Our team is not only familiar with the characteristics of a wide variety of metals and alloys, but also with laser welding, heat treating, cladding, ablation and cutting processes.
We are dedicated to providing the best support in the industry, and are recognized across the globe as having the most experienced, knowledgeable laser service and support teams.
