Entrepreneur Matthijs Houwing MSc. started his involvement with laser cladding during his studies in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Twente in the late nineties. During this time laser cladding was primarily applied at laboratories. At the laboratory of Applied Laser Technology (University of Twente) he contributed to the development of laser cladding processes and –equipment. After finishing his master’s degree he continued to pioneer with laser cladding at small and medium-sized enterprises and a multinational in the Netherlands and Germany.
Thus far his career involved development of laser cladding processes and their application to enhance (local) surface properties of industrial components. Furthermore, with his missionary work he contributed to raise awareness on laser cladding in specialized markets like the gas & oil – and petrochemical industry.
