Global Laser Tek draws small wire for mold repair

Global Laser Tek, a division of the Malhotra Group, is offering extremely small-diameter wire for micro-mold repair using laser, micro MIG or micro TIG. Dan Polto, operations manager for Global Laser Tek, told PlasticsToday that the company specializes specifically in small diameter wire (up to .030") and just completed drawing .005" wire.

The company will sell the wire in small quantities to serve shops that need less material. "We created a niche for these different alloys including nickel and cobalt-based products, inconel and many more, and package them in smaller lots for use in mold repair," Polto said.
