LaserBond laser cladding achieves a welded bond with restricted and precisely controlled heat input. Components that are heat sensitive, for example, hardened shafts and gears, can be repaired without distortion or other unwanted heat effects.
When using LaserBond, heat affected zones are minimised and the cracking inherent in weld hard facing is minimised.
The metallurgical bond enables the applied layers of laser cladding to be used in high impact and other heavily loaded situations. LaserBond offer a guarantee that this welded bond will not separate or come off.
Corrosion and wear resistant surfaces can have a high performance 0.3mm layer applied due to the low dilution of the substrate.
Typical LaserBond applied materials include:
- Tungsten carbide
- Tool steels
- Stainless steels
- Nickel alloys such as Inconel
- Cobalt alloys such as Stellite1; and
- Copper and copper alloys
