Revolutionary Breakthrough: Synergy Unveils Cutting-Edge Laser Hardening Technology for Trim Dies

2023-07-26T01:23:03+00:00July 26th, 2023|Heat Treat|

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 this approach had been employed for many years, it presented several challenges and limitations. One

Laser Heat Treating of Guide Ways and Machine Rails

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 benefits of laser heat treatment is its ability to provide precise and localized heating. Laser

Repairing Large Critical Components using Laser Cladding

2023-07-26T01:26:05+00:00May 8th, 2023|Laser Cladding|

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 result in a significant financial loss and cause unforeseen delays for the customer. However, there

Repair and Refurbishment of high precision shafts using Laser Cladding

2023-07-26T01:26:55+00:00March 21st, 2023|Laser Cladding|

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 a high-powered laser beam to melt and fuse a layer of metal powder onto the

Laser Heat Treating on Hem Dies: An Innovative Solution for Automotive Production

2023-03-27T02:01:36+00:00February 12th, 2023|Heat Treat|

  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 bending the edge of a sheet metal over itself, and it is performed on various

Laser Heat Treating of Trim Inserts for Automotive Dies: Improving Performance and Consistency

2023-03-27T02:00:52+00:00February 12th, 2023|Heat Treat, Services|

  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, they must be heat treated to withstand high shear and fatigue loads. Traditionally, trim inserts

Tool and Die Repair and Engineering Changes Using Laser Cladding

2023-06-27T21:08:41+00:00June 21st, 2021|Laser Cladding|

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 dies. The deposited material forms a metalogical bond with the substrate and does not chip

Laser Heat Treating of Hot Stamping Dies

2023-03-27T02:07:22+00:00June 15th, 2021|Heat Treat|

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 recut the die once it has hardened. This process can take weeks and result in
