Generative laser wire cladding

The manufacturing of stamping tools contains currently complex and environmentally harmful etching processes.

The removed volume predominates over the remaining structure.

Laser wire cladding with fine wire is a alternative manufacturing process for the buildup of precise embossed structure on tools.

This procedure offers technical, economic and ecologic enhancements compared to the previous procedure.

User benefits results in an effective utilization of the material (100%), high productivity and clean process condition.
