With 3D printing by means of laser cladding, tracks of molten metal are applied to a base plate or substrate. These metal tracks are deposited in layers by melting a powder (which can be supplied co-axially or laterally) by means of a laser. Stacking these metal tracks on top of each other enables us to create three-dimensional objects. Since we work with multi-axis laser nozzles and substrate clamps, we do not use the powder-bed principle as in Selective Laser Melting (SLM). This opens up new degrees of design flexibility.
This additive shaping technology enables specific structures and even gradient materials to be made on existing substrates.
• Design Freedom. Complex products can be produced with considerable added value. For example, cooling channels can be optimally placed and extra functionality can be integrated into the design of the product.
• Fast delivery. The transition from design to product is much faster than conventional production as no complex toolings are required.
• Applications include gears, cutting tools, punching dies, etc ..
The LCV-Form products are used in the domain of conventional 3D printing, casting, forging and machining.
