ALUMINUM BRONZE

Titanova – Laser cladding Aluminum Bronze

Titanova has the capability to laser clad Aluminum Bronze onto Ferrous based substrates.  The application is for pressed-in bushing replacement and thus part count reduction.

Titanova – Laser Clad Samples with Aluminum Bronze

Aluminum bronzes are used in applications where their resistance to corrosion makes them preferable to other materials. These applications include plain bearings and landing gear components on aircraft, engine components (especially for seagoing ships), underwater fastenings in naval architecture, and ship propellers.  Aluminum bronze are also used in explosive atmospheric applications.

Aluminum bronzes are in the highest demand from the following industries and areas:

  • General sea water-related service
  • Water supply applications
  • Oil and petrochemical industries (i.e. tools for use in non-sparking environments
  • Specialized anti-corrosive applications

Titanova – ID Cladding down to 4 inches

Titanova Inc demonstrating its continuing innovation in the area of laser cladding is now offering ID laser cladding.  We currently have the capability down to ID diameters of 4” [100 mm] at a depth of 24” [610mm], deeper for larger ID diameters.

Patent Pending PUDDLE FORMING AND SHAPING WITH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY LASERS

Titanova is pleased to announce a new and patentable technology specifically for aiding the laser cladding industry. Titanova has developed, demonstrated, and patented a process method for forming and shaping the laser clad puddle.

This patent intends to solve or improve upon the following:

  • Desposition rate

  • In situ defect mitigation (fixing blow holes)

  • Edge definition

  • Edge definition around holes

  • Inside fillet definition

  • Lowering dilution

  • Thinner clads

  • Improved morphology (flatter, thinnner clads)

  • Control of solidification cracking issues

  • Improving wire feed laser cladding

Titanova is interested in licensing this technology.
