Prima Power Laserdyne is expanding its North American business. Based in Champlin, MN, the planned expansion includes hiring personnel for 20 newly created job positions and the introduction of products into new and existing markets.
"We are experiencing rapid growth because of demand for our leading edge laser systems, which are used globally in the manufacture of aircraft, power generation equipment, automobiles, electronics, fine mechanical components and medical devices," said Terry L. VanderWert, President of Prima Power Laserdyne. "Designs of components based on the latest capability of laser processing and changes in manufacturing strategy are creating opportunities for our proprietary technology."
A supplier of multi-axis laser systems to the global aerospace industry, Prima Power Laserdyne has recently expanded its position in industries requiring laser cutting and welding of fine mechanical and medical components and assemblies. One of its major new products, the Model 430, is designed for automated precision laser welding of fine mechanical and medical devices. It is a high-speed system capable of welding 800 inches with bidirectional accuracy of 0.0005 inch (12.7 micrometer). "This system is designed to bring new levels of accuracy, high productivity and quality demanded more than ever in today's manufacturing," said a company spokesperson. New hires will support this medical industry expansion, which is being directed by Allan Callander, Market Sales Manager who recently joined Prima Power Laserdyne.
"The manufacturing challenges of new lightweight automobiles, more efficient jet aircraft engines and other fine mechanical products such as couplings and sensors have also increased demand for other Laserdyne products, many of which have been developed specifically for these market applications," said the spokesperson. "They are used increasingly for 2D and 3D laser cutting, drilling and welding because of their speed and accuracy. All of these products incorporate proprietary electronics, computer numerical controls and laser sources designed and manufactured either by Prima Power Laserdyne or within Prima Group companies."
"All of these growth areas require more skilled personnel," said VanderWert. "The innovative and hard-working nature of today's American workers are making Laserdyne's success possible and with it rapid new job growth within our company. The skill level required for these positions is an indication of the technical nature of our business and the sophistication of our products. The new positions include assembly technicians, installation and service technicians, applications engineers, design engineers, customer service representatives and other skilled positions."
