Direct Metal Deposition Gets Drive Shafts up to Speed on Container Ships

Artist-Rendering-TOTE

A revolution in the production of sliding bearings: it’s only necessary to apply a layer of metal a few millimeters thick using the powder nozzle to reliably, cost-effectively, and easily protect the large shaft bearings used in ships from wear and tear. O.R. Lasertechnologie GmbH develops and builds robot-assisted laser systems for direct metal deposition (DMD) that take the production and repair of sliding bearings to an innovative new level.
