The laser metal deposition process uses focused thermal energy generated from a laser source to fuse powder metal sprayed at the focal point of the laser beam.
This laser beam melts the deposited powder to the component.
The laser is coaxial to the deposition head which moves in 3 to 5 simultaneous axes.
A rotary tilt table can also be installed in order to keep the melt pool created in a horizontal plane.

Thanks to its specifications, this process is particularly suitable for repairing or adding features to existing components, as well as for recoating applications.
Furthermore, this process fully embraces the Circular Economy concept, allowing to restore very expensive components to their original functionalities. In this way, the value of products and materials is maintained for as long as possible. Waste is minimized, and when a product reaches the end of its life, can be used again to create further value, bringing major economic benefits.
Our Laser Metal Deposition solutions can be equipped with more than one powder feeder, allowing to work with more materials simultaneously.
Thanks to the modular and adjustable design of the nozzles is possible to work with high build rates and great freedom in either fabrication or reworking.
