Paper Abstract

The high power output capability of a CO2 laser has been shown to be an excellent source of controllable heat, allowing for the application of hardface alloys on substrates with very low dilution and consistent thickness. Enormous opportunities exist in the aircraft, automotive, and oil and gas exploration industries for such an alternate to conventional hardfacing equipment and techniques. Yet, the majority of experimentation with lasers thus far thas been on flat surfaces only. This report reflects preliminary findings on the geometric capabilities of the laser cladding process.
