Optimized Powder Jet Perfects Laser Material Deposition

Press Release / 11.4.2018

At Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, an inline system for testing, qualifying and adjusting the focused powder jet of the nozzles of laser metal deposition machines has been developed. With this system, nozzles can be certified and the caustic characterized completely. The user can also visualize and monitor the process thanks to the camera module with integrated illumination.
