Description: 

The laboratory has a 2 kW fibre laser, mainly for the research of additive processes, in particular aimed at the repair of high value added parts, which we consider an industrial niche that is growing in strategic sectors such as aeronautics and energy. IK4-IDEKO has established a major collaboration in this area with the manufacturer Rofin, one of the world leaders in laser technology, with whom, in addition to their becoming a collaborating partner with the centre, we have signed a collaboration agreement for the exchange of knowledge and a joint development that enables us to progress more quickly and securely towards the final objective of developing technologies with practical industrial application. The laboratory has been completed with the equipment necessary for the analysis and characterisation of manufactured parts, at a defect, material structure, composition level, etc., for both metal and polymer parts.

Equipment:

  • EQUIPMENT FOR METALLOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISATION AND HARDNESS.
  • PARALLEL KINEMATICS MACHINING CENTRE WITH LASER CLADDING HEAD.
  • LASER SOURCE ROFIN BAASEL (FIBRE LASER). TWO SPOT SIZES DEPENDING ON THE DIAMETER OF THE USED FIBRE: 150 AND 400 ΜM.
  • GAS INJECTION SYSTEM FOR STUDIES IN DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERES.
