American Cladding Technologies helps a wide variety of industries protect, repair and restore their valuable equipment. Laser cladding, also know as laser metal deposition, provides solutions for equipment that must withstand the harshest environments. Our innovative technology works across multiple industries to extend equipment life, reduce downtime and maintenance costs, and improve productivity – which all help your bottom line.
Level 1 / Sub-safe components
American Cladding Technologies uses Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) ― also known as laser cladding ― to enhance, restore and strengthen the surfaces of metal components with unprecedented Precision, Quality, & Reliability. Helping you through feasibility, qualification, serial production and up to on-site vertical integration is our daily routine. With annual powder deposition amounts now exceeding 32 tons, we’ve learned how to help you stay successful.
Laser hardfacing applies a harder, tougher material to a base metal to improve wear performance and extend service life.
A thick layer (3 mm or 1/8 in.) of coating is applied to the surface of equipment to provide a corrosion - and erosion - resistant surface.
The TruPrint 3000 has a build volume of 300mm (dia.) by 400mm (height) and is ideal for both R&D and production work. The new 3D metal printing equipment compliments the company’s existing arsenal of robotic and cartesian laser cladding platforms.
Laser metal deposition can be used to restore the original dimensions of a component for parts that are expensive to replace or are no longer available.
Boss / profile buildups: Using laser metal deposition, we can build up rough profiles (up to 3.5” thick) that can be machined to final dimensions.
ID cladding applies corrosion and wear-resistant coatings to the internal surfaces of tubes, pipes and other hard-to-reach places.
Our laser cladding processes can repair expensive components damaged through mis-machining, saving the cost of manufacturing a new part.
Our in-house laboratory provides an array of testing and consulting services.
