Hybrid repair machine for turbine blades & turbo compressors
The HSTM-LC is an offer of a fully automated machining center to manufacturers of turbine and compressor blades that features comprehensive measuring technology and a laser cladding unit to provide them with decisive technological advantages when machining components made of high-temperature nickel-based alloys or titanium.
3D laser cladding is essentially a 3D printing technique based on welding, in which metal is melted with a laser and clad onto a part. This is possible with virtually all conventional weld metals. In addition, the concentrated heat input and low material impact allow difficult-to-weld materials to be deposited.
Application in a turning/milling machine creates a new price advantage for these systems and also has the advantage that the applied metal can be surface finished by milling/polishing in a single clamping.
Advantages of buildup welding
In addition to reconditioning worn or damaged areas of a component, laser cladding can combine different materials to improve component properties. Laser cladding, for example, permits the effective combination of different materials. This allows a part made of a substrate material with good structural properties (selected for its strength, toughness and resistance) to be surface coated with a harder and more inert material to increase its wear and corrosion resistance. In this way, the composition and topology of parts can be optimized for long life under harsh or extreme operating conditions.
