Laser beam cladding

Laser beam cladding has been proven to be an ideal procedure to manufacture wear-resistant layers on technical components, to repair tools and to weld-in of tool inlays.

From offline programming and simulation of the machining task to collision analysis, ERLAS has a continuous software support. For the control of the layer structure there are two kinds of testing methods, on the one hand the non-destructive examinations like crack checking and hardness test and on the other hand destructive examinations like transverse microsections and the testing of the microhardness.

For laser beam cladding ERLAS has three laser systems for 3D-processing. Those systems can work with steel wire or powder coating materials.

Laser beam cladding is a technology with manifold possibilities of application using a variety of different material combinations and the formation of coatings ranging from height 0.2mm to 2mm. Larger volumes result from repeated applying of further coatings. For the layer structure on cast iron and alloys like GGG 70 or GG 25CrMo iron based powders are the preferred choice of use. These powders can be processed without preheating, crack-free layers and edges up to a hardness of 62 HRC can be obtained. Further supplementary materials are nickel and cobalt based. They are used, if there are extraordinary high demands of wear resistance.

ERLAS has many years of experience in fit-for-purpose creating of coatings by combining different materials. Just to mention one example, between the base material and the functional layer there will be buffer layers to improve the functional characteristics.
