Technical advantages

High machining speed



Being fully computer-controlled, EHLA increases throughput from 0.5 to 2 metres per minute to 50 to 500 metres per minute, thus coating a part 100 to 250 times faster than before.
 

Low heat input

 

A major advantage of lasercladding is its minimal heat input. This results in low mixing with the base material and little or no deformation. This makes the post-processing of our laserclad layer easier and allows us to guarantee quality.

 

Corrosion resistance



Lasercladding, unlike many other surface treatments, is corrosion-resistant. This is because the microstructure of the deposited material powder is extremely dense, crack-free, and non-porous. The rapid solidification of carbide-containing layers also significantly increases wear resistance.

Metallurgical compound

 

 

The EHLA laser melts a thin layer of the base surface. At the same time, the material powder is already melted in the laser and applied to the base surface. The molten material powder bonds with the base material, creating a metallurgical bonding of these two materials.

Precise layer thickness



The EHLA laser is 1.5 mm wide and is fully computer-controlled. The combination of the minimum laser width and advanced system features allows us to determine the layer thickness down to a few thousandths. This enables us to guarantee the desired layer thickness.

Sustainable

 

 

As the material powder is already melted in the laser itself, this technique allows us to use much less material powder than other laserclad machines. We use as much as 90% of our material powder, allowing us to clad both sustainably and environmentally consciously.

New and repair work



We can perform both new and repair work for you without having to replace the laser or the material powder. This saves a lot of time and makes the laser clad process more efficient.

Large variety of coatings

 

 

We work with a wide variety of material powders. Each powder has its own properties suitable for any application. The machine is set up so that it takes no extra time to switch between material powders, guaranteeing short lead times.
