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 were limited options available for repairing the part without compromising its integrity. Traditional welding methods generate too much heat, potentially leading to distortion of the component. Additionally, it’s crucial that the repaired layer bonds securely to the substrate, ruling out spray welding or thermal spray. In such a scenario, laser cladding is the ideal choice, and Synergy was able to perform a fast and high-quality repair for its customer.
