  5. 5. TechnologiesWaterjet ProcessingLAI has more than 50 waterjetmachining centers that provideadvanced cutting and drillingprocesses designed for cost-effectivesolutions. Our technology offers asurface free of re-cast layers andgenerates precision features in high-strength alloys for your applications.Laser ProcessingOur lasers offer you the latest inthree-dimensional machiningtechnology. We offer advancedmaterial processing for a variety ofhigh-temperature alloys. Our laserprocesses include clean cutting,welding, profile machining, holedrilling and heat-treating.High-Speed MachiningHigh-speed machining removesmaterial two to three times faster thanconventional machining. High-speedmachining technology combined withUnigraphics post processing ensuresthe best surface finish available foryour processing needs.High-Speed EDMElectronic Discharge Machiningcombines an electronic power supplywith high-pressure water to produce asuperior metal removal process.Processing speed, accuracy and lowre-cast provide a new solution forholes and creation of features. LAI International | 5
  6. 6. Technologies Waterjet Drilling LAI has developed a new technology called Drill-to-Flow™, which precisely drills holes with complex geometries in coated and uncoated jet engine, power system and airframe components. CNC EDM Our EDM machines offer the same dimensional tolerances available from conventional machining without the material stress and heavy holding fixtures. Using graphite dressers, we can produce three-dimensional geometry that conventional machines cannot generate. Automated Verification Our automated Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMM) combined with Unigraphics and Valisys software enable us to inspect three- dimensional parts and surfaces using only electronic data. This new technology allows us to map, process and inspect hardware for a cost- effective solution. Engineering and New Product Introduction We have an engineering staff trained in the application of Unigraphics CAD, Valisys Inspection and Vericut CAM software. Our talented group of engineers and process technicians can create models and dimensional prints of your products.6 LAI International |
