Laser Cladding

Laser cladding (also known as laser deposition) is the process of applying one material to the surface of another to enhance the mechanical properties of the base material.

Cladding is achieved by feeding a stream of a suitable powder into a focused laser beam as it is scanned across a metal surface, leaving behind a deposited coating. Cladding is used for a wide range of applications from oil industry components and bearing shafts to remanufacturing and hydraulic shafts.

    Laser Cladding in Tool Manufacturing

    Laser Cladding is a surface technology with a high potential for applications in tool making. Examples are the modification of dies and moulds, the production of hard and wear resistant layers on soft base materials, repairing of sealing edges of plastic moulds and the near net shape manufacturing of cutting edges ...
