JK604D for automotive and aerospace industrial applications

The peak power specification of the JK604D at 16kW provides sufficient energy to percussion drill a wide range of automotive and aerospace components.  The JK604D can be used for:

  • Fast trepanning of 0.3 – 0.8mm holes in less than one sec
  • Deep drilling using long depth of focus
  • Shaped hole drilling
  • On-the-fly drilling

Typical applications include drilling of film cooling holes (effusion) holes in jet engine and gas turbine components such as nozzle guide vanes, blade and combustor liners. The JK604D also includes pulse shaping capability, which can be used to improve hole geometrical quality. The JK604D maintains the unique JK features via LaserView™ complete cycle programming triggered by a single command, increased process benefits from pulse shaping capability for tighter process control and a faster shutter interface for quicker response in parameter changes

  • Class-leading beam quality results in high-quality hole profiles
  • High-intensity laser spot provides faster removal rates
  • Faster control interfaces and complete cycle programming triggered by a single command available through our unique LaserView™ control technology
  • Separate laser head for closer integration to work area and more flexible arrangements
  • High speed, high-performance drilling to meet demanding and unusual application needs
  • Tighter process control via our patented switch-mode power supply with the pulse shaping feature yields lesser costs
