Benefits of laser cladding

  • Benefits of laser cladding

    The main advantage of laser cladding is the low heat input into the substrate. Compared to conventional welding this results in:

    • Minimal distortion of the substrate;
    • Small heat-affected zone;
    • Minimal dilution of the coating by the substrate;

    Laser cladding is an automated process:

    • Thermal input accurately controlled;
    • Excellent process stability and reproducibility.

    Result is a coating with:

    • Fine, homogeneous microstructure;
    • Metallurgical bond to the substrate;
    • 100% Density.
  • Repair of crankshaft by laser cladding
