By: Eckhard Beyer Fraunhofer IWS Over the past decade laser buildup welding transitioned from mostly specialized laboratory efforts into an established industrial technology for high quality and precise surface coating deposition. Compared to traditional plasma powder buildup welding processes, laser cladding generates superior corrosion and wear protective coatings. The laser process can also generate localized […]

Laser Shock Process
By: Che Zhi-gang The technique of laser shock process (LSP) is an advanced surface treatment, which import high pressure shock wave induced by laser beam into target materials to improve their performance. The fatigue life of the materials is prolonged by times through changing the stress distribution. The hardness and strength are increased remarkably and […]
