March 6, 2012
Champlin, Minnesota: Prima Power Laserdyne, the world leader in precision multi-axis laser machining systems,
announced that Jean Gallay SA, Geneva, Switzerland, has ordered a LASERDYNE 795XL BeamDirector® system equipped with a fiber laser.
"By choosing the LASERDYNE 795XL system with the fiber laser, Jean Gallay is making a breakthrough in laser processing," reported
Madam Laurence de la Serna, CEO. "The investment was the most important capital investment in 2011 for Jean Gallay. It demonstrates
the will of our company to grow, especially in the aerospace market, which is forecasted to have strong growth in Europe for several
years, despite the recent downturn in commerce in the European Countries."
Widely known throughout Europe for its precision work in the aerospace and power generation industries, Jean Gallay products are used
in industrial gas turbines, aircraft engines, helicopter turbines, and nuclear reactors. The company will use the LASERDYNE 795XL
equipped with a 2kW fiber laser for 2D and 3D processing of heat resistant alloys (nickel and cobalt), stainless steel alloys,
titanium and titanium alloys. Typical parts include challenging designs of combustion chambers, diffusers, burners for gas turbines
and many others.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide this system to Jean Gallay,” stated Terry L. VanderWert, president of Prima Power
Laserdyne. “The LASERDYNE fiber laser system represents an example of the most advanced technology available and enhances Jean Gallay's
existing production capability in terms of quality, efficiency and competitiveness in the marketplace. The combination of our
proprietary software, laser process specific sensors, and precision machine tool design ensures the laser system is capable of
maintaining and exceeding the tight tolerance requirements for the production of turbine engine components."
A LASERDYNE 795XL system is capable of controlling seven axes of motion with a 2m x 1m x 1m (80 inch x 40 inch x 40 inch) work
envelope that can include two high accuracy rotary tables and LASERDYNE’s latest controller, the S94P. The S94P control,
a CNC control designed exclusively for precision multi-axis laser processing systems, is the basis for numerous unique hardware and
software features that lead to improved productivity, process control, and higher quality laser-processed parts.
The LASERDYNE 795XL system also features the third generation BeamDirector, now referred to as the BeamDirector 3. Its design is
based on 30 years experience in producing high accuracy moving beam multi-axis laser systems. By virtue of its compact and robust design,
the system provides unmatched access to parts for cutting (3D and 2D), drilling, and welding.
Jean Gallay SA is a NADCAP accredited, ISO 9001 and EN/AN 9100 certified company. With over 220 highly trained employees,
the company specializes in the forming, welding, plasma-coating and heat treatment of super-alloy components for use in extreme
LASERDYNE systems have become the brand of choice by critical tolerance component manufacturers and suppliers.
In April 2012 they have installed over 650 total systems, 499 multi-axis systems, and 309 systems dedicated to aerospace / defense
manufacturing worldwide. In addition, systems are used for laser processing automotive, electronics, power, fine mechanics and medical
devices. LASERDYNE SYSTEMS provides a variety of multi-axis laser machining systems designed for the most demanding drilling, cutting
and welding applications. Products include 2D and 3D motion systems with a range of options for the specific application and production
Lasers incorporated include CO2, pulsed Nd:YAG and fiber lasers.
