Definition - What does Laser Cladding mean?
Laser cladding is a process to perform overlay welding through the use of a laser instead of an arc. It deposits a substrate material, known as a clad, which serves as a support material for repairs, wear prevention and corrosion resistance.
Corrosionpedia explains Laser Cladding
Laser cladding has several practical benefits when correctly applied to a metal surface for the purposes of dimensional restoration, wear and corrosion prevention, laser additive manufacturing or other applications. Such benefits include cost effectiveness, high accuracy and no flaking or peeling.
