Super-efficient – High-performance laser coated hydraulic cylinder rods

A higher laser beam cladding performance benefits Bosch Rexroth at the Dutch location Boxtel. The Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik IWS Dresden mutually optimized an industrial manufacturing process with the producer of drive and control engineering. For this purpose the IWS scientists upgraded an existing plasma powder welding machine. This way, large hydraulic cylinder rods can be coated considerably faster. Prof. Dr. Eckhard Beyer, managing director of Fraunhofer IWS, and Bernd Bodenstedt, Technical Plant Manager, Bosch Rexroth Boxtel, officially inaugurated the process.
