ENHANCING PERFORMANCE AND
EXTENDING LIFE OF METAL PARTS
• Has a high resistance against fatigue cracking, preventing critical components from costly failures
• Provides >80% reduction in usage of advanced alloys due to the lack of intermixing and dilution
• Savings in part manufacturing of >30% on post-deposition heat-treatment and machining operations
• Allows for metal coatings of extremely dissimilar materials, un-weldable with conventional laser, EB and arc- welding metal coating processes
Laser-based Materials Enhancement & Joining of Metal Parts
H&R Technology Inc. (HRT) is the developer, owner & service provider for materials enhancement of metal components utilizing its patented Energy Beam Assisted flat-wire (ribbon) deposition process known as LaserForge™ (formerly called PMD™).
LaserForge™ is a new capability for a solid-state welding, joining and coating of highly dissimilar metals. This revolutionary laser-based materials enhancement and joining technology allows for extremely strong-bond cladding with advanced metals and without melting the substrate (solid-state welding).
In many component joining applications, LaserForge™ melt-free metallurgical-bond joining provides superior fatigue resistance and service life. In coating/cladding applications, LaserForge™ prevents costly failures of critical metal parts subjected to high loads and harsh environmental conditions.
