Laser Cladding

Asco operates 4.5kW IPG Fibre Laser fully integrated into an 9-Axis handling system. Laser cladding of components internal and external is a great option for improving corrosion resistance and for the repair of worn parts. Compared to conventional welding build-up processes such as PTA, laser metal deposition (LMD) has significantly lower and more localised heat input, low dilution of the substrate material and reduced potential for distortion, offering advantages in terms of the materials that can be deposited and the workpiece geometries that can be processed.

We offer localised laser cladding to protect outer diameters against wear and corrosion in the well, for example MWD and LWD Tools, Drill Collars, Stabilisers and Couplings. Asco also produce gas-tight coatings with high corrosion resistance for Ball Valves, Gate Valves and Seats. ID cladding of radial bearings is also provided. Materials that are difficult to weld, such as high-temperature nickel-based alloys and high-carbon steels, are more easily clad using Laser metal deposition. In addition, the typically small melt pool formed during LMD process enables Asco to produce very complex geometries within a single setup to deposit protective surfaces, restorative build-ups and the creation of near-net shapes.
