Laser cladding is recommended for hard-facing and corrosion resistant applications. The Laser cladding process utilizes a high-power laser beam as the welding heat source with powder filler injection. Internal and external diameter application coupled with CNC and robotic system can cater for highly complex and precise parts.
The advantages of laser cladding process include low heat input and metallurgical bond created between cladding and base material. This produces a very small heat affected zone with very low dilution, attaining the desired properties with just a thin layer.
