Laser Cladding Machines

Direct Metal Deposition

Cladding is the deposition of materials on a base part for the purpose of enhancing mechanical properties of the base material.

Laser cladding

Using a laser cladding nozzle on Alpha AL Machines

Using the Fraunhoffer nozzle the AL-TW 900 the AL-FLAK 900 and the AL ROCK can be used for cladding. The Alpha laser cladding setup will give you a powder efficiency of up to 98% and a deposition rate of up to 500g/h

This combination of mobility and cladding offers a unique opportunity to fix and maintain large machinery and moulds with minimal down time.

Laser Cladding System Advantages

  • Large area and high deposition rate cladding –rates of 500g/hr. possible
  • Minimal pre and post processing required
  • Precision control
  • Wall plug efficiency >50% => low operating cost
  • High-resolution process with the ability to deposit thin clad layers of 0.3Ø thickness
  • Minimal maintenance requirements
