ID Laser Cladding Optics
LCT offers a range of NUTECH GmbH laser optics for inner pipe and tube processing, known as ID optics. NUTECH is a German company with long term experience in the design and manufacturing of special laser optics. NUTECH ID optics are designed to work under rough industrial conditions in multi-shift operations. Countless running installations worldwide testify reliability.
ID optics tools can be designed and delivered for all standard laser types such as CO2, Nd: YAG, high-performance diode and fibre laser sources.
These optics can be equipped with a pyrometer, camera, adjustment devices and process heads for laser cladding and laser hardening. Nozzles for powder-based laser cladding are standard but wire cladding heads can also be designed.
Examples of use
- Hard facing and anti-corrosion coating of pipe interiors
- Interior welding of pipe bundles
- The recasting of running surfaces
- Hardening or coating of bushings
The modular system
Over the past few years, we have developed a modular system to standardise the design of these optics. This enables us to serve a wide range of different applications or customer requests at a viable cost within a short period.
