Innovative coating processes are our expertise.
In thermal spraying, a melted coating material is accelerated in a gas jet and applied on the component surface. The term "thermal spraying" covers various spraying processes. They are classified according to the type of additive material, the production process or the energy source. The individual thermal spray processes do not compete with each other in their application, but complement each other through their specific process properties.
Laser cladding is an additive manufacturing process where a laser beam is used to locally melt the surface of the base material and an additive material, usually in powder form, is simultaneously added to the resulting melt pool. The melt solidifies as a result of a relative movement of the cladding head to the coating.
