High-end technologies for the reliable production of precision tools

The productivity of machine tools and the demand for the accuracy of manufactured parts has significantly increased in past years. Manufacturers must increasingly machine materials with extremely hard cutting materials, with ever higher machining speeds and quality requirements.

Additive Manufacturing with Powder Cladding

Selective laser melting (SLM), an additive manufacturing process that uses a high-power laser beam to fuse fine metal powders, is the modern solution for repairing and/or optimizing workpieces of all kinds—but especially for building up and progressively shaping large, multilayer surfaces to create three-dimensional components.
