Comparison laser cladding / other processes

Comparison of cladding processes

Laser cladding makes it possible to reduce cladding thicknesses, dilution is very low and the metal deposited has optimized properties throughout its height.
• As the energy is concentrated in the cladding zone and because of the fast deposit rate there is very little deformation (i.e. it is possible to clad finished parts).
• The excellent repeatability of the process ensures constant deposit height and limits over-thicknesses.
• Coatings can be given heat treatments.
