Joining Technologies opens laser additive manufacturing facility
Joining Technologies has added a new laser cladding workcell to its laser additive manufacturing division and is opening an additional production facility to house the unit, along with other equipment related to the laser additive process. The 10,000-sq.-ft., multipurpose industrial flex building is located in East Granby, Conn., less than one mile from company headquarters.
The new facility is dedicated to laser additive (laser cladding) manufacturing, a process used to help improve the mechanical and corrosion resistance properties of many types of parts. With drive-through and dock-height access, the building has the capacity to lift and manipulate parts up to 3.5 tons. It will contain laser cladding equipment capable of processing parts up to 40 ft. long.
