Laser cladding is becoming more and more widely used in the industry. It holds several advantages over classical welding procedures:
- Laser cladding enables addition of various materials for the purpose of form correction or improvement of mechanical attributes of welds.
- The energy input for melting is highly limited and precisely regulated as regards location and time and thus significantly reduces the danger of deformation, cracks and indents in the workpieces.
- Laser cladding enables cladding or bonding in harder to reach areas, as the focus of the laser beam can be at a greater or smaller distance from the laser head (our lasers focus at 150 mm up to 250 mm).
- Welding is carried out under a protective argon atmosphere, preventing the welds from oxidising and giving them an attractive metallic lustre.
- Welding consumables are of various structures and can be adapted to the requirements of the workpieces. They attain high strength, toughness, hardness (up to 62 Hrc), as well as wear and corrosion resistance. Thus laser welding can also improve certain properties of welded pieces. Welding can be carried out either before or after heat treatment. Workpieces can be nitrated, cemented or coated with solid coatings.
- We weld all tool materials of various hardness and quality. Welding can also be performed on stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, beryllium bronze etc.
