WELDING NUCLEAR SHAFT ALL IN A DAY’S WORK
Phoenix Laser Solutions just completed a project repairing an extremely high-value nuclear motor shaft. The shaft had been damaged during manufacturing, and needed the smaller outer diameter cladded with weld. Phoenix Laser was able to weld and repair this shaft in less than a week, much faster than other processes, and with much less machining time. Laser Welding is uniquely useful for the nuclear industry, because of it’s low heat input, and material hardness matching capabilities.
