WEISSER integrates two processes into a multifunctional, horizontal ARTERY machining center, which could not be more different at first glance. The rotational turning developed and patented by WEISSER and the extreme high-speed laser welding method EHLA of the Fraunhofer ILT.
One of WEISSER’s core competencies is the combination of different manufacturing processes. The combination of rotation turning and the Extreme High Speed Laser Cladding EHLA from the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen results in a hybrid machine that performs turning and milling operations as well as additive welding in a single clamping. The resulting new form of complete machining thus eliminates the need for the individual steps of grinding, hard chrome plating and hard turning. Both processes are superior to others in terms of speed and quality. The resource-saving as well as fast and high-quality machining results have already been proven in series production with both processes.
