Reclamation & Surface Engineering

The Low Carbon Alternative

LaserBond can reclaim fatigued and worn industrial parts at a fraction of the cost of a replacement part, whilst improving resistance to wear and corrosion, increasing reliability and service life. New components and replacement parts can also be surface engineered to provide extended service life in a range of challenging environments and applications. With a price being placed on carbon emissions, the abilities of LaserBond to increase the service life of industrial components provide significant opportunities.

The steel industry estimates that around 30GJ of energy is required to produce one tonne of steel. Through utilisation of its surfacing technologies, LaserBond can dramatically extend the useful life of wearing industrial components without the need for replacement. A component originally manufactured from 1 tonne of steel may typically be reclaimed and placed back into service with only 1GJ of energy consumed, thereby dramatically reducing total carbon emissions.

Video Introduction

laserbond-cladding

LaserBond™ achieves a welded bond with limited and precisely controlled heat input. Heat sensitive components, such as hardened shafts, gears etc, can be repaired without risk of distortion or other undesirable heat effects.

thermal-spray

Thermal Spraying produces high performance surfaces with a mechanical bond. There is absolutely no risk of distortion or metallurgical changes to the component.

Plasma thermal spray is used to apply higher melting point materials such as ceramics.
