application Laser Cladding for Continuous Caster Rolls

Laser Cladding for Continuous Caster Rolls   Continuous caster rolls are used in the steel industry to cast continuous solid forms from liquid steel. The rolls are exposed to thermal fatigue, high temperatures, bending stresses, corrosion oxidation and abrasion. The standard method of protecting caster rolls is by submerged arc welding with a 400 series […]

Metallisation Launches New Laser Cladding System
application Metallisation Launches New Laser Cladding System

Metallisation has launched a new laser cladding system, MET-CLAD, which has further enhanced Metallisation’s diverse range of surface coating equipment. Laser cladding, a process that falls into the range of hard- facing solutions, can be used to increase corrosion resistance, wear resistance or impact performance of metallic components, using a method of applying a fully […]

Coating: The laser cladding process utilises a precisely focused high power laser beam to create a tightly controlled weld pool into which a metallic powder is applied.
