Welding opens new possibilities to utilize 3D-printing in industrial applications
The research done in FIMECC MANU program revealed that 3D-printed metal objects can be welded with good quality. The result ensures the fully utilisation of 3D-printing technology in production offering totally new opportunities and significant savings.
Enhanced manufacturing characteristics and tailored service properties through laser hybrid welding
Laser-arc hybrid welding can be simply described as a fusion-welding process where both a laser beam and welding arc are focused simultaneously in the same weld pool. This hybrid technology has a number of advantages, but in this context the most important is the use of external filler material to modify the metallurgical composition of the resulting weld. The objectives of...
