Laser Deposition Technology, or LDT, is an additive process that is used to build freeform fabrications,
repair metal components typically considered non-repairable by conventional techniques, or strategically
add features to forgings or castings. All of these capabilities come directly from CAD data. No hard tooling
changes are required.
LDT deposits exhibit excellent material properties. These material properties, combined with the flexibility
of the process, significantly lower overall production costs. When used for manufacturing and the production
of prototypes, the LDT process greatly reduces product development time.
