Laser Cladding Process

Laser Cladding or Laser Deposition is a processing technique used for adding one material to the surface of another in a controlled manner.

A stream of a desired powder is fed into a focused laser beam as it is scanned across the target surface, leaving behind a deposited coating of the chosen material.

This enables the applied material to be deposited selectively just where it is required.

Process Advantages

  • Additional material can be placed precisely where desired.
  • A very wide choice of different materials can be both deposited and deposited onto.
  • Deposits are fully fused to the substrate with little or no porosity.
  • Minimal heat input results in narrow HAZ (heat affected zone).
  • Minimal heat input also results in limited distortion of the substrate and reduces the need for additional corrective machining.
  • Easy to automate and integrate into CAD/CAM and CNC production environments.
