Application of protective coatings

Experimental workstation for deposition of protective coatings and fast prototyping by laser cladding

The stand consists of:

  • the technological CO2 laser MLT 2500 with numerically controlled XY-manipulator and Z-axis feeding control system equipped with infrared pyrometer detector,
  • 3-stream water-cooled nozzle integrated into the laser head, which assures homogenous flow of metal powder, co-axial with the focusing optics. Two additional gas streams serve for shielding of the focusing lens and prevent the production of oxides and contaminations while processing.

This stand allows for:

  • cladding of protective coatings on the surfaces especially open to wear or effect of erosive environment,
