ProFocus

3D generating or additive manufacturing has the potential to revolutionise present design guidelines and manufacturing processes. The research company OSCAR PLT GmbH makes an important contribution to this change with its new development of the coaxial direct diode laser ProFocus. With a laser power of 1kW and six single laser beams which are arranged coaxially around the material feed, the ProFocus can be used flexibly for deposition welding with powder or wire. The beam generation and the optics of the direct diode laser are positioned in a processing head. Due to the coaxial structure, a processing completely independent of direction is guaranteed. Ultra-HDR cameras ensure a reliable process monitoring. Unlike powder bed-based generative technologies, this system makes it possible to further process any existing semi-finished product and to add geometry elements of any size.
