Custom Fraunhofer ILT Nozzles from JTRC

Product Announcement from Joining Technologies, Inc.

Custom Fraunhofer ILT Nozzles from JTRC-Image

Our custom nozzles combined with affordable lasers and integration services now bring advanced laser technologies within reach of automotive, agricultural, tool and die and other industries. And for a fraction of both the cost and lead time of replacing parts, JTRC can also repair worn, damaged or even mis-machined components.

Engineered in Germany by Fraunhofer ILT.

JTRC features three custom nozzles to offer laser additive solutions for any application or alloy.

  • Continuous coaxial nozzle : Can be used omni-directional and with a tilting angle up to 20 degrees. Its hollow powder cone creates a smooth feeding gas flow and maintains an oxygen content of less than 20 ppm - perfectly suited for alloys which are susceptible for oxidation. This low oxygen value eliminates the need for a shielding gas chamber and opens the door to cladding or additive manufacturing even for titanium alloys.
  • 3-beam nozzle : An omni-directional nozzle with three single powder feeds capable of cladding in almost any orientation. Its rugged design is especially suitable for use with higher laser powers (up to 3 kW CW with CO2 and up to 5 kW CW with other lasers) in combination with aluminum, iron, cobalt or nickel-based alloys.
