LaserBond , previously known as HVOF and Laser Technologies, specialise in reclamation and surface engineering of industrial components operating in severe environments and critical applications. LaserBond commenced trading as HVOF Australia with a vision based on reducing maintenance costs and extending machinery life by adopting leading edge technologies to meet the ever changing needs of industry.
The formation of LaserBond coincided with a technology development in thermal spraying known as high pressure high velocity oxy fuel (HP HVOF).
HP HVOF increased the quality and performance of thermally sprayed coatings and as a consequence broadened the range of potential coating applications. By initially concentrating on these new applications and supporting the developments with an extensive in house metallographic laboratory, LaserBond could get established in the thermal spray market.
In 2001, after significant research, LaserBond commissioned their first laser cladding system to further broaden their capabilities and provide their customers with access to coatings and overlays with a full metallurgical bond. This technology permits the welding of precision layers of material, with minimised heat input, and almost no metallurgical side effects.
LaserBond have utilised a range of thermal spraying, laser cladding and welding technologies, coupled to robotic handling systems and a comprehensive machine shop to provide a complete portfolio of solutions to a range of industries.
LaserBond became publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX)in late 2007.
