Paper Abstract

The laser cladding process allows the generation of high quality coatings. Otherwise the circular cross section of the single tracks, which is mainly defined by surface tension and gravity, shows potential for optimization. For cladding of large areas a flat and broad geometry is favoured, slim walls allow enhancing the generation of 3-dimensional structures. The paper reports about a novel technology, which uses the skin effect due to the application of high frequency magnetic fields and the resulting surface pressure to adapt the track geometry towards the requirement of the application.
