METEK – precise measurements in any weather
Laser welding of premium steel
KURIOS welds individual components together by means of laser welding methods. There is a demand for these instruments in all kinds of fields where safety has the highest priority, such as seafaring, aviation, and mining, and KURIOS makes sure that the respective data can be trusted. Let us give you an example: during take-off and landing, the pilot is in need of weather data that is exact to the second in order to make air traffic as safe as possible. When approaching the remotest airfields in the most chaotic weather situations, every pilot expects reliable information. Sudden freezing rain, blizzards, hurricanes, or torrential rain describe “normal operating conditions” and are not allowed to affect the data in any way.
As a reliable partner of the Elmshorn-based (near Hamburg) company, KURIOS welds all premium steel components for their ultrasonic anemometers. Due to experienced project management and close cooperation, we were able to develop an optimal manufacturing process. The construction of precision instruments has been made suitable for laser welding and conventional soldering and bonding methods have been replaced.
The great advantage: that solution makes it possible to weld even already wired subsystems without any functional loss. As a consequence, we were able to optimize some stages of production and enhance product requirements, particularly with regard to durability and tightness.
That way, METEK’s ultrasonic anemometers will withstand the coming Arctic winters without a doubt.
