Laser cladding, laser welding as well as laser hardening are becomming possible on a MILLTURN of WFL. The advantage is the automatic change of the laser head including laser cladding optic, that can be directly mounted on the turning-boring-milling unit via the prismatic interface.
During laser cladding high build-up rates can be achieved not only for linear paths (e.g. laser cladding of injection screw, build-up rate: 2940 g/h) , but through the use of the many NC axes of the MILLTURN almost any geometric form is possible.
Complex cooling channels or bented connection flange can be manufactured efficiently.
