Solid-State Versus Gas Lasers – Modern Laser Production Technology for Powertrain Components
Even a few years back major manufacturers utilized standard CO2 lasers in factories for welding applications. Massive systems installed in separate rooms away from the actual production process supplied the energy for what, at the time, was relatively new laser welding technology. Developments since then have continued and modern systems increasingly use solid-state lasers, which deliver a range of major benefits.

Aviation team at EMAG ECM develops customized Aero solutions
The key components for aircraft turbines are made of high-tensile, heat-resistant materials. For example, the blade integrated discs – high-pressure compressors inside the turbine – are made of nickel-based alloys that put a lot of strain on milling tools. The components aren’t the only thing feeling the heat, the competitive pressure the aircraft manufacturers are under is rising, with their production planners forced to cut the throughput times for these components even more.

The all-rounder for highly flexible shaft machining
The “FAST 2025” study by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) describes a trend towards suppliers within the automotive value-added chain. At the same time, shorter product cycles and an increasing range of models will change the car market, according to the authors. But what these changes mean for the production processes of suppliers and subcontractors can be seen through the example of shaft machining.

Impressive Technology from EMAG: Precise Electro-Chemical Machining (PECM) Replaces Engraving and Eroding
The packaging industry is a key example of the prevalent use of embossing and stamping dies. However, creating such embossing tools, with their delicate structure, to be durable against wearing during production is complex. It is easy to see how the traditional processes for manufacturing such dies can be costly. EMAG ECM offers a viable alternative, in the form of PECM, for the packaging and other industries using such dies.

Modular manufacturing systems for the production of gears
Gear cutting requirements, for example in the manufacture of powertrain components, continue their trend of becoming increasingly stringent. Complex gearbox configurations pose enormous challenges when it comes to the quality of their components, which are also produced in ever larger quantities. With the new VLC series of modular machines, including the VLC 200 H vertical gear hobbing machine and the VLC 100 C vertical chamfering machine, EMAG offers the ideal solution needed to meet these production challenges.

A Boost for Crankshaft Manufacturing
Grinding a crankshaft is an art in itself, as the demands made on this essential component found in every engine are huge: ever longer runtimes demand the highest precision in their manufacture. The radii not only have to be perfectly round, but the bearing surfaces have to be of perfect quality, too. In short: every surface of this pivotal engine component allows for only the tightest tolerances, otherwise there is no guarantee that the engine will run smoothly.
