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:
- higher complexity
- dimension enhancement
- material mix
- flexible wall thickness
and generally, a multifunctional application.
Let’s assume a customer needs a steel profile according to the first drawing on the left (1). Manufacturing the product via hot extrusion would not be possible because of dimensional restrictions (2), but it is possible to produce single components via hot extrusion and laser welding (3) and to combine them with laser welding technology (4).
Hoesch Schwerter Extruded Profiles GmbH as part of the Business Unit Hot Extrusion cooperates with Montanstahl AG and Innostahl Engineering GmbH to provide the necessary know-how and manufacturing expertise to create high quality composite profiles at competitive prices.
