Laser Surface Treatment

With the laser, surface properties can also be partially changed with maximum geometrical and material flexibility. For wear or corrosion protection applications, we develop system solutions for wire and powder-based laser deposition welding (LMD-W) as well as targeted surface layer modifications by laser beam hardening, remelting, alloying or dispersing. Hot work tools are subject to high abrasive and adhesive wear during use. A previous surface treatment allows the tool edge layer to be efficiently modified and adapted to the respective subsequent application.
