3D scan of components before laser cladding
The components are first detected by a scanCONTROL laser scanner. If required by the component geometry, this is done from several directions. Regardless of the reflection properties of the material, the sensor constantly provides reliable measurement values. The raw data can be transferred directly to the customer’s software, combined with a 3D model and used to calculate and plan an optimal path planning. In addition, the nozzle can be placed at the correct distance from the surface and then guided along the calculated path. The result is a new, even and full surface. Different sensors can be used depending on the intended use such as repair, 3D printing, joining or coating.
