Remanufacturing is not just about salvaging worn-out components but also unlocking their true potential. Instead of discarding parts that still hold significant value, remanufacturing breathes new life into them, reducing waste and minimizing environmental impact.
With the advent of Titanova’s laser cladding technology, remanufacturing has witnessed significant advancements that surpass traditional repair methods. Integrating laser technology offered a unique solution to address the critical national need to restore worn surfaces of metal parts more efficiently and accurately. Laser additive remanufacturing provides enhanced precision, control, and efficiency, making it a game-changer in the industry. The process minimizes heat and dilution, resulting in superior outcomes with minimal distortion.
Advantages of Laser Welded Clads
Laser welded clads, produced through laser additive remanufacturing, offer several advantages over traditional repair methods. Here are some of its benefits:
Unlike traditional repair methods that involve excessive heat and dilution, laser cladding provides precise and controlled heat application. This innovation minimizes distortion of the repaired part, ensuring that critical dimensions and tolerances are maintained.
Enhanced Precision and Accuracy
The focused heat application allows for targeted melting and bonding of the clad material, creating a strong and alloy bond with the base metal. This precision ensures the repaired part meets the required specifications and performs optimally.
Superior Resistance to Shear Stresses
Unlike thermal spray or cold spray technologies, laser welded clads exhibit exceptional resistance to shear stresses, making them suitable for applications that involve high mechanical loads and extreme operating conditions. Fusing a thin metal layer through laser welding creates a robust bond that can withstand the shear forces encountered in various industries.
Utilization of Exotic Materials
With laser additive remanufacturing, it is possible to use a wide range of materials for the clad layer. This includes exotic materials such as Inconels alloys and Stellites™. By incorporating these materials, laser welded clads can offer improved properties and performance compared to the original part, resulting in a better-than-new outcome.
Versatile Repair Solutions
Whether cast iron, laser cladding technology can effectively repair and restore various metal parts. This versatility makes it a valuable asset for industries that remanufacture worn components.
Cost Savings and Resource Efficiency
The efficient repair process reduces the need for costly and time-consuming traditional machining and fabrication methods. Additionally, recouping a high percentage of energy and materials in rebuilt components enhances resource efficiency and promotes a sustainable approach to manufacturing.
Commercial Applications of Laser Additive Remanufacturing
The potential commercial applications of laser additive remanufacturing span across various industries. Here are some key sectors that benefit from this technology:
Laser additive remanufacturing revolutionizes the energy recovery sector by restoring critical surfaces of components used in power generation. By repairing turbines, pumps, and valves, this technology improves the efficiency and reliability of energy recovery systems. Thus, the result is enhanced operational continuity.
Construction and Mining
Laser additive remanufacturing improves equipment performance and durability by repairing wearing components found in excavators, loaders, and bulldozers. This reduces downtime and increases productivity, enabling an expanded replacement part supply chain.
Marine applications — including shipbuilding, offshore platforms, and port machinery — rely on components that withstand harsh environments and constant exposure to corrosive elements. Laser additive remanufacturing provides an effective method for repairing and restoring critical surfaces of marine components, such as shafts, bearing journals, and seal surfaces.
Over time, components in power generation systems can experience erosion, corrosion, or other forms of wear, leading to reduced efficiency and performance. However, by leveraging the precision and versatility of laser cladding, the technology brings these components back to life.
This technology enhances performance, safety, and reliability by restoring certain engine components, gears, bearing journals, and many cast iron components. It helps reduce maintenance costs, extends the lifespan of transportation systems.
