Every manufacturing process reaches its physical and technical limits at some point. Despite this, it is often worthwhile to think beyond these limits. This is especially true when, through the intelligent interaction of two different manufacturing processes, it becomes possible to expand the dimensions and achieve a higher degree of complexity while simultaneously using different types of steel.
Especially by combing the processes hot extrusion and laser welding, you can expand the limits by achieving:
flexible wall thickness
and generally, a multifunctional application.
Let’s assume a customer needs a special steel profile and, manufacturing the product via hot extrusion would not be possible because of dimensional restrictions, but it is possible to produce single components via hot extrusion and laser welding and to combine them with laser welding technology.
