Laser cladding with powder and wire for repair and modification
With laser cladding, surface application is performed by melting of a material on a workpiece. Laser cladding is used for the upgrading of surfaces and to repair or modify components that cannot be replaced cost-effectively. Manual or automated processing is possible.
It is the high quality of our laser cladding services that provides the primary advantage of this process over other repair processes. We can customize the repair to solve the problem and help your equipment to continue to work.
Heat-sensitive surfaces and coatings are treated in a relatively distortion-free manner. Even the typical discoloration on polished surfaces and branding spots fails to materialize. Adjacent grains remain unchanged. The otherwise extensive post-processing is reduced to a minimum. Our customized services mean that you will get the exact repair that you need.

Fully automated application
Laser cladding with powder melts the metal powder onto the material and connects it to the metal of the workpiece. In industrial use, laser cladding with powder is used mainly with full automation. Laser cladding with wire or strip as a filler metal functions similar to the process with powder and is used mainly in manual laser welding installations.
