NAME

Laser laboratory for the analysis and development of solutions for additive manufacturing.

DESCRIPTION

The laser laboratory is an environment for research, development and industrial design of solutions for the Laser Metal Deposition process. With 2kW and 5kW sources, and different cladding heads, it can be used both for high precision applications (150mm spot) and for high productivity (up to 8kg / hour). It is prepared for a wide variety of materials (Inconel, Titanium, different compositions of steel, aluminum, etc.), and allows using gradients of composition to give the piece different mechanical properties (higher hardness, resistance to corrosion, thermal behavior...), in different areas of the piece.
It also has a closed loop control system that allows (unlike the other existing systems) to adapt the geometry of the material provided to the most appropriate size at each point, and its use for gradients of composition.
It includes the necessary equipment for the development of industrial LMD solutions, and the design of solutions for industrial implementation.
The system allows the additive manufacturing of complex geometries through its 5 axes of movement, and a work volume of 300x300x300mm3.
