Paper Abstract

By the laser melt/particle injection process, an in situ composite surface layer of particulate material in a matrix made up of the parent metal is formed. The particles are usually metal carbides which makes the injected surface layer hard and wear resistant. In this paper, the processing technique and the microstructures obtained are described. In addition, the hardness and wear characteristics of the modified surface are discussed.
