LASER CLADDING

Laser Cladding Surface Technology for Remanufactured and OEM Components

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

Laser cladding handles high-volume surfacing, complex geometries, irregularly-shaped parts, multidimensional profiles, and threaded areas.

Swanson maintains four high-powered fully automated laser cladding systems with size capabilities of less than 1" in diameter to 48" in diameter and up to 80 feet in length.
