About Laser Cladding in the Energy Industry


The Power Generation industry is known for applying the latest in materials technology. This is particularly evident in recent times as more demands are made to increase wear/corrosion protection, service life and of course, reduce safety risks. Laser cladding offers a broad choice of overlay coatings designed to meet the requirements necessary for protection against heat, corrosion and wear.

Successful applications have been applied in power plants either driven by a gas turbine, steam or water turbine as well as the hydraulic cylinder industry.

Typical Applications:

  • Fans
  • Hydraulic cylinders
  • Pelton wheel
  • Boiler tubes
  • Bearings
  • Shafts
  • Pumps
  • Shafts
  • Wear rings
