Joining Technologies a Groundbreaker in Laser Additive, Electron Beam and Laser Welding Applications Features at POWER-GEN International
East Granby, CT (News4us.com) December 13, 2010
Joining Technologies, an innovator in laser additive, electron beam and laser welding applications, will feature its capabilities in booth #1341 at POWER-GEN International, held December 14-16 in Orlando, Florida. The company recently opened a laser additive manufacturing facility to house its new 6 axis laser cladding work cell and other equipment related to the laser additive process.
Joining Technologies is the exclusive provider of Laser Applied Powder surface restoration technology (LAP®). The technology creates true metallurgical bonds between virtually unlimited metal types and is ideal for applications in aerospace, power-generation, valve and OEM-supplied components. Precisely focused lasers allow Joining Technologies to create extremely small heat affected and dilution zones for superior strength, hardness and performance.
Joining Technologies’ new facility, located in East Granby, CT, is dedicated to laser additive processes. With drive through and dock height access, the building has the capacity to manipulate parts up to 7.5 tons and contains automated laser cladding and direct manufacturing equipment able to process parts up to 40 feet long.
“We are very excited to showcase our expanded laser additive capabilities at this year’s POWER-GEN show,” said company president Dave Hudson. “Our laser cladding process offers unprecedented precision and reliability, allowing us to effectively enhance, repair or free-form material for a wide variety of applications.”
Joining Technologies will also showcase its laser cutting technologies at the show. The company will highlight its capability to provide 4-axis cutting with a cut width of just 0.0015” (1.5 thousandths of an inch). This very narrow cut width reduces heat input to the part, minimizing discoloration and warping.
