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.

Hardfacing and Corrosion Resistant Overlay

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.

Restore and Fabrication

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.
