Large Sizes for Large Diameters


PDM Steel offers a single system capable of combining multiple manual operations into a single cycle, dramatically reducing your wait time and cost. Additionally, this process can decrease the amount of welding by developing “smart parts” including tabs and features on the processed material for quicker assembly.

The Opportunities of Laser

Simplification: The use of open profiles and special sections simplifies assembly and reduces final construction costs. In 3D cutting mode the machining of the chamfer for weld preparations can be completed.

Accuracy: Parts with better cut quality/ Repeatability: +/- .004 cutting tolerance. High quality parts with machining accuracy and batch to batch consistency enable robotic welding.

Universal: The versatile laser cutting head has the ability to machine the widest variety of sections, materials and thicknesses including: cutting, drilling, tapping.

Efficiency: Reduced processing time for large parts.
