FORTECOAT Laser Cladding Powders

Laser Cladding is a method of depositing material by which a powdered material is melted and consolidated by use of a focused laser beam in order to coat part of a substrate.

Process Advantages

  • Powdered material can be placed precisely where desired.
  • Very good metallurgically bonded and fully dense coatings with little or no porosity.
  • Minimal heat affected zone and low dilution.
  • Excellent process stability and reproducibility because it is easy to automate and integrate into CNC production.
  • Limited distortion due to minimal heat input.
