Warrington-based specialist manufacturer, Croft Filters, has invested in a new Nd:YAG laser welding machine to increase production line efficiency and further its customer offering.
The machine, which is capable of both spot and seam functions, designed with the precision of the micro-welding industry in mind, will provide Croft with a previously unattainable level of accuracy and consistency when welding.
Croft will utilise the laser beam welding technology to join filter components that have smaller seams or low thermal distortion, and therefore require a higher welding speed and precise control during the process.
In addition, the machine will enable Croft Filters to focus on the product aesthetics and durability, providing long-term benefits for Croft’s customers, such as increased maintenance cycles.
Neil Burns, director at Croft Filters, commented: “It is important that we are consistently updating our services in line with customer needs and demands.
“Introducing the new Nd:YAG Laser machine to our production line will not only benefit our customers in terms of providing more intricate products, but also gives Croft the technology it needs to maintain a high quality and future proofed service.”
