Laser Cladding Services add new heat treating process

LaserHeat Pinpoint Treating is a high-powered laser pin-point heat treating process that extends the lifecycle of critical parts.

LaserHeat enhances the metallurgical properties of a part within a specific critical wear area by providing surface hardening to a localized area without altering the chemistry of the entire part. The process offers many advantages over typical flame and induction hardening methods that require the entire part to be heated, such as low thermal input, minimal distortion, higher part processing speeds, and accurate case depths.

The Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT; East Hartford, CT) and the National Center for Aerospace Leadership (NCAL) announces that the 4th Symposium for Aerospace Laser Applications (SALA) will take place at Rentschler Field, East Hartford, CT on April 1-2, 2009. This conference, which originally focused on laser drilling for aerospace applications, now examines a wider range of laser processes being used by manufacturers for aerospace applications.
