East Granby, CT -- Joining Technologies is opening up its Joining Technologies Research Center (JTRC) to offer "Application Laboratory Days," in which engineers spend the day in the company's R&D facility to investigate how their projects could benefit from laser additive manufacturing (LAM).

During the "AppLab Day" sessions, design engineers can conduct their research on JTRC equipment and guided by the company's laser additive experts, to create and analyze samples. They will see firsthand how the laser additive process works, and how laser cladding of metal powder alloys can enhance, repair, or freeform material for a variety of components used in aerospace, power generation, valves, and OEM components -- or even create new products and processes.

"JTRC's new AppLab Day helps bridge the gap between university-level research and shop floor production laser cladding," stated Tim Biermann, director of research and development for JTRC.
