Laser Cladding

The group Cladding focuses its core competencies on the development of process- and system technologies for a broad spectrum of industrial laser application. Of special interest here are the two fields: surface coating, direct metal depositions for applications in repair-and generating of components and tools. Furthermore we offer CAD/CAM software solutions, components for system integration as well as on-site support for industrial customers.


Service offers

Our service comprises R&D contract research concerning additive laser procedures in the broad sense (cladding, build-up welding, coating, alloying, dispersing and generating). Furthermore we process real components, develop comprehensive system technological solutions and transfer various techniques of laser cladding into industrial applications.



COAXwire mini for filigree and complex components

The COAXwire mini is intended to close the gap to high-precision machining, especially for applications for repairing and generating high-quality and filigree complex components. For the first time, fine wires from 300 to 600 micrometers in diameter can be processed in a machine-guided system
