Advanced Laser Technologies Casting Braze Plugs Include Precise Holes for Cooling

STONEHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) - Advanced Laser Technologies has introduced custom braze filler plugs that can be laser cut from the host cast material in precise sizes and include precision laser drilled holes for cooling.

Advanced Laser Technologies' Casting Braze Plugs are precision cut from the same material as the cast part to fill holes left behind which allow access to the I.D. where additional machining was required. Laser cut to customer specifications using nitrogen to prevent a recast (oxide) layer, they can be produced in a wide range of sizes and include precise holes for cooling.

Featuring precise laser drilled holes as small as 0.010" dia. with ±0.0005" tolerances and exact repeatability, depending upon the material, thickness and configuration, Advanced Laser Technologies' Casting Braze Plugs can range from 0.180"L x 0.080"W to 0.250"L x 0.500"W, with thicknesses from 0.030" to 0.1", and tolerances to ±0.005", depending upon configuration.

Advanced Laser Technologies' Casting Braze Plugs are priced according to configuration and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request. The firm is General Electric approved for laser cutting/drilling & airflow.
