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

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

Georgensgmünd, (PresseBox) - 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.

MBFZ toolcraft GmbH

Toolcraft is partner of research and development departments in almost all industrial sectors. As an associate of engineers and designers of the semiconductors, optical industry and opto-electronics, special machinery manufacturing, motor sports and automotive, medical technology, aerospace, defence and security, toy and consumer goods industry as well as the printing industry Toolcraft manufactures precision parts, assemblies, moulds and injection moulded parts.

Thereby Toolcraft values long-term business relationships to solve even the most extraordinary tasks in the shortest possible time, to the complete satisfaction of its clients in the industrial sector and universities.

Part of the corporate philosophy is an intensive cooperation with partners, such as unicam Software GmbH, YPTI Indonesia, CONCEPT Laser GmbH, Solidpro GmbH, to offer technologically and economically convincing holistic solutions.
