TWI’s UK-leading laser cladding research and development facility utilises a unique the Trumpf 7040 LMD system.
The specially-commissioned laser metal deposition (LMD) machine is very unique as it is the only one of its kind in the world. The machine uses a 50 micron nozzle positioning accuracy across its entire 4m x 2m x1.5m work envelope.
It's also equipped with 7 axis, a Renishaw touch probe, a dual core LLK and disc laser giving automatic spot size adjustment from 0.7 to 7mm, and offering unparalleled nozzle precision and accuracy and part referencing / scanning.
The system assists with TWI’s ability for large-scale repair and additive manufacture / 3D printing of parts for industry, including within the aerospace sector.
