Frequently Asked Questions:

What is lasercladding?

Lasercladding is a new type of surface treatment. A high-power laser is used to melt a thin layer of the base surface, whilst simultaneously adding material powder into the laser. This material powder melts and bonds with the base material, resulting in a metallurgical bonding of these two materials.


Can parts be restored using lasercladding?

Yes, it is possible to restore a damaged or improperly machined part using lasercladding. In fact, we can set the layer thickness ourselves based on customer needs to restore the damaged part or return the part to its original or better condition.


What type of bond does lasercladding have with the base material?

Lasercladding provides a metallurgical bond to the base material.


How does the dilution of lasercladding compare with conventional welding?

Dilution in the base material is less than 2% in laser cladding, which is minimal compared to conventional welding methods. This is done with minimal heat input, which is controlled by the short time the laser is focused on a particular point on the part.

How are coatings chosen?

Coatings are determined based on a thorough analysis of the application and the environment in which it will serve. We take corrosion, wear, and other mechanical properties into account, depending on the part. Click here for more information in which applications laserclad coatings are used.


Can we control the thickness of the coating applied to the part?

Yes, through precise control of computer-controlled parameters, we can apply your desired coating thickness with a tolerance of ± 0.125 mm (± 0.005 in).


Are laserclad layers machinable?

Yes, parts can be finished with an external honing machine, polishing machine, lathe, grinding machine or ground precise finishes.


Can the heat input be controlled during laser cladding?

A major advantage of lasercladding over conventional welding is that the heat input can be precisely controlled, creating minimal dilution and a small heat-affected zone. This lower heat input prevents distortion and the properties of the base material are not adversely affected.
