We have over 20 years experience in the field of laser cladding technology and laser nozzle development specifically for wear, corrosion and remanufacturing applications. We have successfully transferred our technology into volume production for many industrial customers throughout North America, many of which currently rely on our state of the art nozzle technology 24/7 for their production needs.
For wear resistance, a wide variety of commercially available Nickel, Cobalt and Iron alloy powders can be used. For the highest level of wear protection, mixtures of metal powder with tungsten, chrome or vanadium carbides are utilized.
The laser beam melts the coating material and the substrate material to form a deposit that is metallurgically bonded to the substrate. These deposits are stacked or laid next to each other to form 100% dense near net shape structures that required minimal post machining.
- Low dilution (1-5%)
- Improved wear and corrosion resistance properties
- Low heat input / distortion
- High quality deposit
- Minimal post machining requirements
