VDK 3000 Laser Additive Manufacturing
Six Degrees of Freedom Robotic Motion
VDK3000 is a Flexible Robotic Environment 6 six degrees of freedom laser additive manufacturing system. The system’s main capability is to deposit various materials in order to build parts, repair existing parts or perform cladding operations.
In addition the VDK3000 laser cladding system is a fully developed laser additive manufacturing (LAM) system for production of surface modifications of prosthetic devices (on the 100 micron scale) to accelerate osteo-integration.
Laser Cladding is the bonding together of dissimilar metals. It is different from fusion welding or gluing as a method to fasten the metals together. Cladding is often achieved by extruding two metals through a die as well as pressing or rolling sheets together under high pressure.
