Titanova offers the benefits of both hot and cold wire feed laser welding

Titanova in its continuing effort to develop new laser process technologies for the benefit of the industry is offering both hot and cold wire enhanced laser welding.

This unique laser process application offers improve weld root reinforcement over laser autogenous welding.

The wire feed laser welding process is a very clean spatter free process that is similar to TIG welding but at a much faster weld speeds.   This leads to a much lower cost at a cheaper price for our customers.  So in addition to the low heat input leading to lower weld distortions one can get an excellent and almost perfect fillet weld using laser wire feed welding.

Opening up new opportunities

Since the laser is such a controllable heat source the wire feed laser welding technique allow for much smaller wire diameters and therefore much thinner gauges as compared to traditional MIG or TIG welding.

Laser Hard Facing of Aluminum

Laser Hard Facing of Aluminum

Titanova along with our material partner is introducing laser hard facing process for aluminum.

This is a unique aluminum based hard facing material that can produce hardness of > 2000 Vickers.  This is approximately the hardness of tungsten carbide.  This is orders of magnitude harder than the aluminum base.   Unlike tungsten carbide metal ceramic coatings this new hard facing material has a continuous hard matrix making it an excellent substitute for hard anodization coatings.   Our laser hard facing process allows one to apply thickness of 0.010 -0.025” thick, which is typically 5X- 10X thicker than a hard anodize coating.  This in combination with the super high hardness makes this an excellent choice for the most demanding wear environments.
