Paper Abstract

A wear-resistant Cr-Mn-C clad was produced on an AISI 1016 substrate by a laser technique using a defocused beam and a powder delivery system. The resulting physical properties were measured and correlated to processing parameters. The tribology and micro-structure of the clads were evaluated and compared to hardened 440-C stainless steel, Stellite 6, and AISI 1016. The laser processed clads were more wear-resistant than the materials they were compared to. The alloy distribution varied within the clads. The variation agreed with predictions of theoretical models of laser molten regions.
