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
Hot stamping dies consist of several die sections joined together. Conventional heat treating processes require complete dis-assembly of the die prior to heat treating in order to prevent O-rings and seals from heat induced damage. Laser heat treating of hot stamping dies do not require any dis-assembly due to the low heat input of laser.
Hard chrome plating has long been the preferred method for hardfacing and dimensional restoration of machine parts due to its traditionally recognized benefits.
Most typical electric motor shaft repairs require the shaft bearing location to be rebuilt. Wear on the shaft is often a result of bearing failure.
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.
Industrial Laser Solutions featured SAM in January/February 2019 edition of their magazine. SAM presented the benefits of laser heat treatment which included cost savings and quality improvements.
