Mold Maintenance, Repair & Surface Treatment 116 MoldMaking Technology —— JULY 2018 Pulsed Fiber Laser Welding System The LMF70-HP from Amada Miyachi America, Inc. is the newest addition to its LMF Series of lasers. The 70-watt LMF70-HP is designed to be ideal for weld- ing small components and thin metals up to 0.01-inch (0.25 mm) thick. Amada Miyachi says it is particularly well suited for welding battery tabs to cans (two thin sheets of metal), but can also weld thin wires (thermocouples, guidewires, etc.). In addition to welding, the unit is capable of engraving, deep engraving and cutting of metal, plastic welding and general purpose, high speed marking. The laser is offered as an original equipment manufacturer product with galvo scanning beam delivery and controller or integrated into the LMWS platform, a CDRH Class 1 laser workstation. The system is designed with multiple integration options to suit stand- alone operation, full production automation, as well as low volume prototype development. The air-cooled, sealed industrial package has been designed for operation in harsh environments and comes with powerful control software. The unit complies with IEC13849-1 category 3 Performance Level d (PL d) safety circuitry with proper integration. Amada Miyachi America Inc. / 626-303-5676 / Spray Washer Suitable for Large Molds Ransohoff, a division of Cleaning Technologies Group LLC, has introduced its Mega Jet Pressure Blast, an economical, manual, high-pressure spray washer for very large, heavy parts where floor space comes at a premium. The Mega Jet Pressure Blast is one of the products in the Ransohoff LeanJet line of cabinet parts washers. The parts can be loaded with an overhead hoist crane onto a rotating table. Cleaning Technologies Group LLC says that the delivery system is an innovative solution that has proven to be ideal for intricate details on machined parts. The Mega Jet Pressure Blast is contained in stainless-steel housing. Its cleaning process provides high pressure spray that is manipulated by hand to the various geometries of the parts. The washer runs 3–4 cycles per hour. The washer comes with compressed air jets for drying, along with a programmable controller and an HMI screen. Some typical applications for this machine include large gears, large aviation components, large molds and large dunnage parts. Cleaning Technologies Group Ransohoff / 877-933-8278 / Cleaner Combines Dry Ice Pellet Production and Dry Ice Blasting Cold Jet, LLC offers the Combi 120H, an automated system that combines dry ice pellet production with dry ice blasting. The system integrates seamlessly into existing production lines for surface preparation of parts prior to painting or bonding or for automated deflashing and deburring solutions. The system connects into existing plant-monitoring systems and can be monitored remotely for any field service requirements. Cold Jet says that the Combi 120H eliminates the need for cleaning parts with aqueous meth- ods that require part drying and water treatment or containment systems. The system runs using a collaborative Universal Robotics Model 10 robot. This automated solution makes it possible for dry ice blasting equipment to be integrated within a production line via a robotic system. The automated system is equipped with a pelletizer unit that guarantees continuous cleaning with freshly made dry ice. The system is placed in a sound-reduction chamber that controls the noise and provides for the extraction and filtering of air. Cold Jet LLC / 513-831-3211 / Mold Care Products Have No Chlorinated Solvents Slide Products says that it has eliminated all chlorinated solvents from its line of mold care and processing products, which come in a variety of formu- lations, including NSF, food-approved, paintable, non-paintable and medical. Slide also purged compounds for resins and processing applications. The company's NSF products include mold releases, mold cleaners, rust preven- tives and lubricants. Product titles are EconoMist, a light-duty mold release; IPA Isopropyl Alcohol cleaner, a kosher-approved solvent; Mold Cleaner Plus Degreaser, which removes build-up on mold surfaces; On/Cycle mold cleaner, a multi-purpose equipment cleaner; NEXGEN, a biodegradeable cleaner; White Rhino rust preventive, a fingerprint acid neutralizer; Super Grease aerosol, a dielectric lubricant; and its counterpart, Super Grease non-aerosol.
