Laser Cladding with COAX 8

With this annular gap powder nozzle, a hollow conical focused powder stream is formed at the nozzle exit, which is directed at the work piece coaxially with the laser beam. By means of homogeneous powder distribution, the powder feed is completely independent of the welding direction, so that any desired contour can be created. During the coating process, the powder nozzle can be tilted up to 30°.
