Applications

Application of laser cladding in the equipment life cycle

 

  • Applications equipment life cycle

  • 1. Design & development phase

    Issue:
    Technical and/or financial requirements impose selection of part base metal without optimal surface properties.

    Offered solution:
    Enhancement of surface properties of new parts to extend service life.

    2. Manufacturing phase: part fabrication & system assembly

    Issue:
    Delay in manufacturing process due to part fabrication – or system assembly defects.

    Offered solution:
    Repair of parts to minimize delay.

    3. Operation phase: use, maintenance & repair

    Issues:

    • Loss of efficiency and/or increased risk on system breakdown due to deterioration of parts;
    • Downtime due to system breakdown.

    Offered solution:

    • Repair of deteriorated parts supporting regular maintenance;
    • Repair of damaged parts after system breakdown.
