The laser system manufacturer TRUMPF is putting the new EHLA method into series production (in German, EHLA stands for extreme high-speed laser deposition welding). EHLA is significantly faster than conventional laser deposition welding.
The unique technology combination of laser deposition welding by means of powder nozzle and milling on the LASERTEC 65 3D is an innovative, generative manufacturing process which enables complex geometries and individualised components to be produced faster. In particular, large components up to 500 mm diameter can be manufactured quickly and efficiently with this hybrid solution. Flexible switching between laser machining and milling also enables component segments which are no longer accessible on the finished part to be machined directly.
