Laser Welded Mold

Laser Welded Mold

Process Description:

The repaired area is filled in several passes until the desired height is achieved. Patented wires with different compositions are used with hardness levels from 20-55 HRC. The transfer of heat outside the welding point is eliminated by extremely short pulse duration (9-10 seconds). The temperature of the part when it is 1/18'' from the weld is not more than 90°F while complete fusion occurs between the repaired part and the welding wire. The accuracy of the weld may be controlled within 0.002''.

Advantages:

  • Ability to repair molds with high precision and retention of metallurgical properties of the base metal
  • No size limitations
