Paper Abstract

Potential applications such as hard facing of engine valve seat, turbine engine blade shroud interlock and leading edge of steam turbine blade, with controlled dilution have stimulated the use of laser cladding recently. In this paper, based on the laser beam interaction time, the microscopical study of dendrite structure formation in laser cladding of stellite number 6 on mild steel and Cr-Ni base materials is investigated. The effect of the various parameters such as heat input, beam interaction time, scanning frequency and transverse speed are considered. The applications in the rapid prototyping industries are also discussed.
