Fraunhofer develops EHLA ultra-high-speed laser material deposition process for coating metal parts

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) have developed a new additive manufacturing method for coating, and repairing, metal parts. Fraunhofer believes the technique, known as ultra-high-speed laser material deposition (EHLA), has potential to replace current corrosion and wear protection methods such as hard chrome plating and thermal spraying. The development, which included […]
