Paper Abstract

As tools for use in industrial applications, High Power Direct Diode Lasers [HPDDL], also known as semiconductor lasers, are becoming more prevalent as a heat source for industrial applications. Diode laser technology has now been used in production for a number of years. Their unique beam shape, low ownership cost, high efficiency (~60%), and compact design make them an economic alternative to traditional heat technologies for heat treating and cladding of overlay operations. The benefits of using HPDL for laser surface transformation hardening and cladding are discussed.
