The laser metal deposition process is extremely easy thanks to TRUMPF DepositionLine: You use the laser to create a weld pool on the prepared surface. Powdered material is guided through the nozzle, step by step. As soon as the new material has cooled down, you weld the next layer or start with post-processing.
Powder deposition welding with DepositionLine
Laser metal deposition is the answer to wear or the need for modifications. With TRUMPF DepositionLine, you can add metallic material depositions on existing components as though it were cast. And this is possible without any loss of quality, well-sealed, and free of pores and cracks.
TRUMPF DepositionLine consists of three essential functional units: the powder feeder, the powder feeder line and the processing optics with the process nozzle.
As a movable unit, the powder feeder is positioned directly next to the laser processing machine. The powder/gas mixture from the individual containers is merged to form a single powder mass stream in the powder feeder and then fed to the process nozzle in a precisely regulated stream. Integrated sensor systems ensure the high quality of the material deposition at all times.
