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.
