In these times where, for many, the natural attitude is to stop, Prima Power Laserdyne announces the relocation and expansion of its manufacturing and operations Facility, moving from the present location in Champlin, Minnesota, to a new facility in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, a milestone achieved thanks to the generative force of a great group which focuses on helping their customers overcome laser processing challenges and enabling their customers to be more successful.
The innovative facility includes all manufacturing, research, office, customer demonstration, service, and user training space. The new facility is being converted to the specialized production requirements of the Prima Power Laserdyne systems. The LASERDYNE® and Prima Additive DED additive manufacturing machines are built and tested in the new facility.
Giovanni Zunino, President of Prima Power Laserdyne, stated, “Prima Power Laserdyne continues to bring new technology into the global Aerospace and the precision laser processing markets. With the continued growth of 3D laser processing, Prima Industrie, our parent company, is investing in Prima Power Laserdyne and the North American operations. We must maintain our worldwide market leadership in these sectors. A critical component is having a facility customized to fully support the domestic and international needs for 3D laser processing and DED additive technology.”
Dr. Aaron Montello, Operations Senior Manager, is quoted as saying, “The enlarged manufacturing space will provide the operations team with the capacity needed to meet increasing demand while also improving operational efficiency. Prima Power Laserdyne is a technology leader and key supplier in the precision 3D laser processing market. Now, including the addition of DED additive manufacturing machine production, we have the space required to support our customers with an even wider range of laser processing solutions.”
The new facility will have dedicated customer service, machine demonstration, and training areas. Mark Barry, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented, “Whether the process requires welding, drilling, cutting, or DED additive manufacturing, companies worldwide have depended on our expertise and advanced material knowledge to develop and put into practice a laser solution that helps them be more successful in their business. As Prima Power Laserdyne continues to develop new equipment and laser solutions, we must have sufficient space to demonstrate and train our customers on the best laser processing techniques and solutions for their processes.”
Mr. Barry added, “Prima Power Laserdyne’s 40+ years of material and laser expertise is directly applicable to additive manufacturing. No other company offers a complete range of expertise, knowledge, 3D laser process systems, experience, and capability.” The facility has been open for customers since March 1, 2020, at the new address: 7105 Northland Terrace North, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota 55428, USA.
Prima Power Laserdyne has developed proven laser processes for a wide range of materials: nickel-based alloys (e.g., Hastelloys®, Inconels®, Waspaloys®, Haynes®, wrought, cast and single-crystal alloys), titanium alloys, stainless steels, high carbon steels, cast iron, hot-stamped steel, aluminum alloys, copper alloys, and other specialty materials.
