Conventional heat treating process for trim dies involved leaving an extra stock of material on the die, which was then subjected to induction or flame heat treating. After heat treatment, the dies were machined back to the required tolerances. While
Laser heat treatment is indeed a viable alternative for improving the efficiency, safety, and precision of guide rail manufacturing processes. Laser heat treatment offers several advantages over conventional methods such as flame or induction heat treatment. One of the key
Were you aware that Synergy has the ability to repair large components? Recently, a flywheel with a diameter of over 1 meter was ground too much (0.015"/0.4mm) during prefinal operation, which was only discovered after nitriding. Scrapping the part would
Shaft laser cladding is a highly effective process for the repair and refurbishment of industrial machinery components such as precision tools, motor shafts, centrifuge components etc. especially those that have suffered from wear and tear or corrosion. This process uses
The automotive industry is constantly seeking new and improved methods for producing high-quality vehicles. Hemming is a critical operation in the production process and has a significant impact on the overall quality and performance of a vehicle. Hemming involves
In the automotive industry, trim inserts play a crucial role in the production of sheet metal stampings. Trim steels are used to trim the metal sheets after forming operation. To ensure that the trim inserts are strong and durable,
Join us January 24-25 at the Metal Stamping Technology Conference in Nashville. Synergy Additive Manufacturing LLC's CTO and Co-Founder, Aravind Jonnalagadda will cover case studies on how manufacturers can reduce overall costs, and time to market while significantly improving quality. Register

Synergy Additive Manufacturing LLC's Co-Founder and CTO Aravind Jonnalagadda meets with the Design and Software International (DSI) team to discuss the future of heat treating with robots and lasers. Take a closer look at how we use Autodesk Powermill and
We are excited to announce that Synergy Additive Manufacturing LLC has received a grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Industry 4.0 Technology Implementation Grant program! The funding is part of the MEDC program to ensure that 50% of local
Synergy Additive Manufacturing Co-Founder and CTO Aravind Jonnalagadda and Nitin Kumar are presenting with other industry experts at GDIS 2022. Join us Wednesday, May 18 to learn more about Laser Heat Treating on Form, Trim, & Hot Stamping Dies.
Laser cladding improves the tool life. Laser cladding is an effective tool for the repair and engineering changes on tooling and dies. Compared to conventional welding techniques, laser cladding inputs minimal heat resulting in minimal to no distortion on the
Hot stamping dies are typically hardened throughout, which can create issues during the assembly and testing phase. In order to address any distortions, die makers have traditionally needed to disassemble the entire die, send it for heat treatment, and then
In the case of automotive dies, the cost savings that result from switching from conventional heat treating processes to laser heat treating are due to the elimination of the hard milling operations that are typically required following the use of those conventional processes.
