First-hand functional components - High-tech expertise for highest demands

Metal laser melting at Toolcraft offers entirely new possibilities – with outstanding efficiency

(PresseBox) ( Georgensgmünd, )
Georgensgmünd (D), 05.03.2014: The innovative vigour of Toolcraft is manifested in the continual investment in new technologies. Therefore the company expanded its product portfolio with laser-melted precision-engineered components in the year 2011. The benefits of this innovative method are evident: manufacturing of complex geometries, processing difficult-to-machine materials as well as the production of precision parts with considerable time savings and less material wastage. The resulting quality is convincing and meets even the high requirements in aerospace and motor sports.

Versatile materials - now Invar 1.3912

Metal laser melting, in combination with proven core competencies like turning and milling of difficult-to-machine materials, provides crucial benefits. For this reason Toolcraft improves the technology continuously and expands its production capacities.

When selecting the right material for metal laser melting, the company matches its material and manufacturing expertise to the requirements of its customers. Toolcraft process nickel-based alloys, such as Inconel 718 and Inconel 625, as well as high-grade and tool steels, such as 1.4404, 17-4PH and 1.2709. Since this year the company is able to process the icon-nickel alloy invar 1.3912 - a material with a very low linear thermal expansion coefficient, which is used in the semiconductors, the defence and space sector as well as the composite manufacturing.

Further investment in Machine Park

To meet the requirements of its customers even more effectively, Toolcraft extended its machine park by another M2 cusing laser melting machine from Concept Laser - in the meantime the third machine.
