Formalloy's Formax Metal Deposition Head provides an exceptional combination of performance, reliability, ease-of maintenance and value for additive manufacturing, laser cladding and metallic part repair applications.
Designed for robotic systems, manufacturing production lines and retrofits, the Formax enables state-of-the-art Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) and laser cladding capabilities for a wide variety of applications.
The Formax coaxial design provides excellent powder efficiency with liquid cooling for operation at power levels up to 8 kW. Various nozzle sizes are available to provide the optimum powder spot size for the given application.
The Formax head has been rigorously designed and tested using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) models and real world testing using Formalloy’s very own LMD machines. Durable materials are used to stand up to abusive environments and crashes, enabling use in the most demanding applications.
Various options are available to customize the Formax to a given application including:
• Nozzle sizes
• Optic adaptors
• Powder feeders - Formfeed
• Gas manifolds
• Process automation
• Turn-key LMD/cladding systems
