Laser Cladding

Swanson Industries Australia’s laser cladding can be applied to high volume surfacing, complex geometries, irregularly shaped parts, multidimensional profiles, and threaded areas.

Laser Cladding Process

The damaged surface area of the component is machined to precise specifications in preparation for the Laser Cladding process.

Laser Cladding Advantages

  • Selective hardness ranges
  • Various levels of corrosion resistance
  • Matching substrate chemistry
  • Minimal inter-metallic dilution
  • Low heat input
  • Low thermal distortion
  • Narrow heat affected zone

The machined component is sent to one of Swanson’s laser cladding facilities.

With the cladding process complete, the component is machined to OEM specifications, finished and inspected.

Swanson maintains three high powered fully automated laser cladding systems with size capabilities of less than 25mm in diameter to 600mm in diameter and up 6m in length.

This high density, low thermal input process can apply a multitude of surface coatings at specified chemistry with minimal heat effect and dimensional distortion.
