Researchers integrate OCT system into LMD process

The technology will be used to stabilise and actively control the laser process, reducing scrap

The combination of wire and powder tested at the Fraunhofer IPT resulted in hardness increases of the material of up to 30 per cent. (Image: Fraunhofer IPT)

Flexible & cost-effective hybrid cladding process developed

The new method is significantly more cost-effective than powder processes while offering greater material flexibility than wire processes
