Research project on “laser cladding” technology, consisting of the application of a metallic coating layer by adding material to the surface of a piece to improve its characteristics, normally to increase resistance to wear or corrosion.
The contribution is made by direct powder fusion. The creation of the trajectories to follow during the process is studied, as well as the use of different nozzles for the contribution of the metallic powder and the materials used.
