LWT - Lindoe Welding Technology
Optimise or grow your business using high quality laser welding with high repeatability and low heat input or repair existing damaged or worn out high value steel components.
Lindoe Welding Technology (LWT) is a state-of-the-art laser welding facility for testing and developing new production methods.
The combination of modern high-power laser equipment and a skilled, experienced staff within process and material science helps your company optimise the production.
Services at Lindoe Welding Technology
At LWT, we offer a wide range of services within high power laser technology to help you grow your business:
- Product and process development
- Manufacturing of full-scale prototypes
- Repair and re-manufacturing
- Large scale 3D Printing
- 0-series production
- Knowledge transfer
- Batch production
- Unrivalled infrastructure for testing.
The flexibility key is two 16kW Disc-lasers with the option of coupling these into one fibre delivering up to 32 kW laser power. The lasers can operate individually but depending of the specific application the process can be extended to a hybrid process allowing both wire and powder material feed.
This is one of the most versatile and powerful laser systems available for commercial use in the world, giving you a unique opportu¬nity to test and develop new production methods.
Laser welding and laser hybrid welding
Laser welding and laser hybrid welding are high quality welding methods. The main characteristic is repeatability and a low heat input compared to conventional welding methods.
The low heat input results in minimum deformation of the final product.
The high laser power available on LWT will secure a large welding depth thereby possibility to weld thick section material with a minimum of weld passes securing high productivity.
Given the advantages laser technology excels as a superior method for surface repair and optimisation of new or existing damaged or worn out components. The technology also permits 3D Printing/additive manufacturing which can lead to significantly lowered total cost when comparing to conventional production methods.
A competent partner
LWT is operated by FORCE Technology which have a strategic partnership with Lindø Offshore Renewables Center. Both partners being extremely competent in their fields of knowledge.
FORCE Technology has an extensive knowledge in laser welding processes, add to this a specialised and experienced staff and you are guaranteed a qualified partner.
